#DSFWeeklyRewind: Can I get a Do-Over?

Good afternoon Rewinders! I seem to have a pattern of good weeks followed by bad weeks. If that’s really true, this coming week should be phenomenal!

The short version: I am so awkward that I managed to show my crazy (as one of my co-workers would say) to the gentleman that took me out last weekend, and now I’m being ghosted.

Or at least I’m 97% certain that’s what has happened. I’ve been kind of fixating on how to fix it, which of course always makes it worse, right?

#DSFWeeklyRewind: My new coffee share.

Happy Halloween weekend my lovely people! Since the Weekly Coffee Share seems to have gone the way of the dodo, I appreciate that Tara over at Daisy Smiley Face has picked up the slack and made a new linkup for us to compare our weekly tales of wonder or woe.

While the Coffee Share was about sharing over coffee, I get the impression that this one has a bit of a musical score to it (hence the cassette tape… which is a way people used to listen to music, for all you young ones). Given that, my musical score today is coming from Jimi Hendrix.  Continue reading “#DSFWeeklyRewind: My new coffee share.”

Weekend Coffee Share: Going to meet him.

Good morning coffee share peeps (and other various readers, both old and new)! This weekend if we were trading tales about our wonderful weeks over coffee, mine would be hazelnut latte. My roommate has this delicious smelling hazelnut coffee, and although it (in my opinion) doesn’t taste as good as it smells, it is getting me going this Saturday. It’s already lunch time, and I just had breakfast after sleeping over 10 hours.

Weekend Coffee Share: Catharsis

So, first of all, let me apologize for dropping off the face of the interwebs for a while. I haven’t even been on Twitter much until the last day or so. Instagram either.

Since we’ve gotten back into the swing of things (after the Hurricane disrupted life in general), I’ve basically just been trying to keep up with all the changes:

  • The counselors keep moving my students around, and thus I have to adjust the lessons a little more or less for each class based on the adjustments.
  • I’ve been talking to the most recent Indian fellow, but I think he’s gotten tired of my late nights in the classroom.
  • I had to get a tooth extracted… Not fun.
  • And then immediately got the flu.

And then, to top it all off, it seems like I can’t find the linkup for the coffee share. Does it not exist anymore? Have I been gone THAT long?!

Why do we divide ourselves? (part 2)

So a short while ago I started talking about how we separate (or divide, to stick to the title) ourselves into categories and judge each other based on those categories. I had wanted to talk about more serious stuff, but ended up using the whole post to rehash how some of the most recent men in my dating life have stopped seeing me as human, and how it was due to their racial make-up.

No, the irony of me talking about how we shouldn’t categorize people and then me doing that exact thing is not lost on me.

Not as Planned…

This school year has been more involved than I expected. The result has been that I’ve not been writing. At all. Not on here, not for NaNoWriMo, not even in my new notebook I bought just for writing poetry and things…

Instead, it’s been all lesson plans and grading papers, and making copies, and supporting my kiddos at their games and things.

And occasionally a date here or there.
