i have just a few things to finish up before my classroom is all set and adorable, and a whole lot of things to finish up before i'm ready for my students! OMG OMG OMG wish me luck! on the plus side, i'm all caught up on bones and i managed to solve thursday's "oops i'm half-naked crisis" with a highly successful shopping adventure this weekend! i love killer sales and back-to-school deals, and with groupon's awesome gap deal, i will be a very stylish and fully-clothed teacher on the first day of school! have a great week, everybody.

dailies 8/8-8/14.

and it's dailies time! this week concludes the first and last week of my real, obligation-free mini-summer.
sunday, august 8th: "slowly intertwining."
monday, august 9th: "getting things in order."
tuesday, august 10th: "3000 miles doesn't feel quite so far."
wednesday, august 11th: "i may dress like an adult, but i still don't feel like one."
thursday, august 12th: "keeping my honeydew safe and sound."
friday, august 13th: "and miles to go before i sleep."
saturday, august 14th: "yep, still terrified of everything ever." 

and what have i been doing with my mini-summer? trying to be responsible and organizing my life as best i can and readying my very own classroom for my students (who i meet in two unbelievably short weeks!), and watching lots and lots of bones because man, do i love tv. though it was directly responsible for my nonsensical conviction that there was a crazy psychokiller in my house last night waiting to super-murder me.

also i saw scott pilgrim and it was unbearably good! so of course i had to go and do this:
go see it (and/or scott pilgrimize yourself)! have a great week, everyone.

dailies 8/1-8/7.

dailies are a little late this week because i, um, forgot about what it's like to have a life!  let's get right to work:
 sunday, august 1st: "they consider me a regular at the farmer's market."
monday, august 2nd: "i swear, door, that i am the one with the brain in this scenario."
tuesday, august 3rd: "my tried and true method of procrastination."
wednesday, august 4th: "self-control and patty melts are incompatible."
thursday, august 5th: "HEY my very favorite coat was on tv!"
friday, august 6th: "a lovely last day."
saturday, august 7th: "OH MY GOD I LOVE SUMMER."

the walters wrapped up friday, and i have just two short weeks before i report to duty at my new school! how incredible and exhilarating and terrifying all at once. have a great week, everybody; i will be making maximum use of mine.

dailies 7/25-7/31.

oh hey sunday, how's it going? so nice to see you again. i have been a super-slacker this week, basking in my unbelievably flexible (albeit brief) schedule between the end of precollege and the start of summer camp at the walters (aka tomorrow). how do i define said basking? uh, 3 seasons of 30 rock in 4 days mmmmm. every once in a while i really love turning off my brain.

sunday, july 25th: "tiny thank yous for giant actions."
monday, july 26th: "don't you look at me, dinner."
tuesday, july 27th: "cerebral wrap-up."
wednesday, july 28th: "couldn't have said it better myself."
thursday, july 29th: "the sky opened up every time i tried to procrastinate leave the house."
saturday, july 30th: "starting fresh."
saturday, july 31st: "walking around listening to instrumental music makes me feel like i'm in a movie."

also, in my "hey i get to be a real human, wheeeeee" time, i both donated a bunch of crap to good will and then bought some more awesome things, including a standard (lovely) scarf, a navy j.crew button-front skirt, a crisp oxford (for the whole, looking-like-a-grownup thing) a DKNY motorcycle jacket and best of all, a dark magenta leather blazer. bonus points (or a secret surprise!) if you can guess what i spent (and raf no guessing you big answer-knowing cheat!). have a great week, everybody!
