More must-keep-eating snacks. Those mayo chips may be my new favorite snack ever.

Did some planning and marking at school this morning after the longest two day week ever. I have a wee cold of the sort that makes me headache-y and uncomfortable except for when I am eating something, so this delicious convenience store egg helped me survive my morning. I have a lot more I could do, but I am giving myself the next day and a half off. It’s all about balance, right?

Ah, what a glorious crisp winter morning! What’s that? It’s early September and technically still summer? Well, in that case, this is bullshit. I’m putting you on notice, Calgary.

Keep forgetting to tell my students about the appalling weather in Calgary right now to properly horrify them about how rough everyone has it in Canada!

Some bits of an animation I did for LeCube, adapted by them, from some spots originally created by Buck.

Fifty minutes of a gorgeous sunny Saturday spent prepping one lesson. Grade 6 math may be the end of me.

They are in grade six. I think this may be a good age for me. Old enough to read and write and have reliable bladder control, but also young enough to have kept some of the enthusiasm of little kids. 

I still miss my darlings from last year, but this new group has some real gems already. I just read over the first day surveys I gave them and they were thoroughly entertaining to read.

Day two of the school year complete. Aside from the fact that 25 kids is an obscene amount of children to be responsible for after last year’s class of only 7, well—-I like them! I really like them! So far anyway.

My sister sent me this advice last night: “Make them love you and keep the reins short”. Very succinct summation of the top priorities in week or two I think. Am attempting my best.

Oh my god, you’d think I would know better than to show up on time to a party where I only know like two people.

Trying to plan for the new school year with no internet or printer access…déjà vu from last year? Though to be fair I am still in a better position this year as at least I have access to some art supplies and things to set up my room. Also I can print things if I go to someone else’s room, I just happen to have the only classroom sitting in some sort of wifi dark zone in the school. Which will be sorted out…well, nobody knows quite when. Brilliant.

My room looks like a total dump, and I feel wildly unprepared to start the school year. Here’s to my transformation into Super Teacher by next Monday?

Aloe drink, nice to have you back in my life you old trusty hangover companion.

I feel I’m experiencing an unfair amount of pain today in relation to the amount I consumed last night. Damn ciders. Now I must to go to emart to look for a router while struggling through a hungover fog. Karma for my good decisions I guess.

Part of the orientation at my new job included a tour of the store. The tour was called “Why You Will Never Succeed At This Job”. It included words like merchandising, visuals and floor plan. I remember hearing all these words when I was a fashion sales associate at Walmart, but back then I didn’t…

Kathleen, your stories of your adventures in retail never fail to make me laugh out loud.
