On The Go...

Oh. The crazy excitement. I have been in this, the quietest library on campus (I discover a month before my hopeful graduation), for 3.5 hours and have not accomplished one iota of studying. It's nice, but my guilt is kicking in. I have nothing to show for it whatsoever, so I'm resorting to posting.

What can I say? I took my second teaching certification exam yesterday and should find out the results momentarily. Geez. That's boring. The first was a content proficiency exam and this one pertained to teaching pedagogy. If that seems like a funny word to you. Join the club, google it, or just read on. We're moving past it.

I think Mimi's getting married tomorrow, and I don't have a thing to wear. I confess to stopping at the outlet malls between San Antonio and Austin and blowing an entire $35.oo on clothing that added up to $550 on the original price tags..., and I still feel guilty.

And, to boot, I have been perusing Craigslist and even made a Facebook quiz of my own. It's pitiful, really. I did start going back to Al Anon this week as I am living with a spousal unit who's taken drinking back up and a daughter who's stealing pills from her dad and all sorts of other fun things. One would think I would be writing here more often to maintain my sanity, but no. I prefer insanity, apparently.

Should I tell you what is interesting me on craiglist? I posted one rant that said,
"Hey (insert bitch's name here), Why are you fucking others' husbands?"
which I don't think I'll elaborate on at this moment, suffice it to say that much will be vented here via poetry, undoubtedly, and notice the plurality....

Crap. Double crap. I had decided to move out last week. Into all my wonderous choices. And, I am not sure if I am a coward or wonderfully loyal. I think it's the former. I am having to transition to another counselor as school draws to an end (I HOPE!!!! I have to pass Real Analysis to graduate) and I am going with a cool local group that specializes in sexuality issues.

I did answer one cl ad and have been in communique with a person and it's a cute one and I think I'm kinda pathetic, but it's in a moving forward kinda way though. Plus, I'm sporting this $88 sweatsuit jacket that I go for $7.00 and feel pretty fly. So, suck it. Please.

I'm going to get kicked outta here in 13 minutes. This library in the UT tower closes at midnight- the lady with the sexy voice just said so.

I bid you a doo.

"This library in the UT tower closes at midnight..."

Uh, that's not the Charles Joseph Whitman tower, is it? Yeeesh...

Holy shit, woman, you got a lot going on don't you? I applaud you for your fantastic outlet purchases, don't let anyone make you feel guilty about those. Not even yourself.

Just endure a while longer, get your creds and move on in whichever direction you choose.

Be careful with that CL shit. There are some scary people out there.

Randal Graves said...

Yeah, what the hell, you're making it bad for us professional whiners who really having nothing to whine about in comparison.

All the insane fuckery going on is moot to an extent 'cause regardless of the fuckery quotient of said fuckery, your distinct lack of fuckery in your person cancels out any external fuckery.*

*all terms taken my imaginary psychoanalytical masterpiece that I haven't written yet.

Don't feel guilty. You got a bargain AND stimulated the economy.

Liberality- In the name of reversion therapy, I am so glad we live hundreds of miles away because I just couldn't stand sittin' down for a cup of coffee with you. We'd have absolutely nothing to talk about. ;)

Bubs- I wish you could be my body guard. I'm feelin' a little vulnerable.

Lassy- I am more than aware that the peoples that are to be met on the intertubes are sketchy. Believe you me- and I know you're speaking from first hand experience. ;)

Randal- Please, please write your psychoanalytic masterpiece. It's what this crazy world needs.

For some reason, buying clothing for 6% of it's store price, that had to have cost more than that just doesn't feel like stimulating the economy. I got a $244 blazer made out of Italian wool and sewn in the US for $5. That ain't bailing anyone out. That's just inefficiency that benefited me for a change.

Take a deep breath, Ms. Bee. Get through the moment before you start worrying about the next moment.

You made me miss Austin and you know I wasn't a huge fan when I was there but I did love the outlet malls and the queso. I am not sure why but you hadn't been showing up in my Google reader. I am happy to see you and sorry to hear that things are rough. This too shall pass.

Damn, Bubs beat me to it and I woulda had ta Google the shooter's name anyhoo. Remember Steve Martin in "Parenthood" when he imagined himself trying to supportive of his son no matter what, even if he became a college tower sniper?

"Oh, no, son, you have to correct for the wind! Yes, that's good!"

hang in there FB and if nothing else I always got enough Pabst and a spare bed here in Maryland if you need it

dguzman said...

Gees, Freida, I slack off on visiting your blog for a few weeks, only to come back to this? My my my.... I will second what the wise Tengrain said--take a breath and let it out. One thing at a time, baby.

Utah Savage said...

What is there to say, but good luck with all of this. You do have a lot on your plate. But I'm thinking no matter what happens, the credentials can't hurt.

Randal Graves said...

Hey, five more bucks were spent than wouldn't have otherwise been spent. Assuming no one else ever bought that blazer and that's what I'm assuming in order to support my crackpot theory.

I want to take your FB quiz. I'm Kristi Love...
