things I should say to you
They got stuck somewhere
Stuck between me and you
Oh I'm nervous
I don't know what to do
Light a cigarette
I only smoke when I'm with you
What the hell do I do this for?(WOOoo)
You're just another person(WOOoo)
OK, you're kind of sexy
But you're not really special
But I won't mind
If you take me home
Come on, take me home
I won't mind
if you take off all your clothes
Come on, take them off
'Cuz I like you so much better when you're naked
I like me so much better when you're naked
I like you so much better when you're naked
I like me so much better when you're naked.Yeah!

School is busy. Stressful. Fun. Awesome. Sometimes I'm so frustrated by things there I want to break things, but generally it gets me out of bed every morning not hating my life, which is all anyone can really ask for. Plus the money is INSANE for a teacher. I recently actually LOOKED at my paystub and had this surreal flashback to a day at Uni when they told us how much we could to expect to make in our first few years. I'm doubling that. I'm not bragging, I'm just lucky I live in W.A right now, where they actually pay teachers what they're worth. I'll definitley take a paycut when we move.
Speaking of moving... there were some rumblings about leaving this place last week.... we are both getting itchy feet. However Jeremy's been offered a higher position in january, and I still have alot of I want to do at school... so we're staying, most likely. We're reserving the final decision for December, but it's almost certain.
Ian and Steve just came over. Ian bought me an awesome T-Shirt. For no reason.... I have insanely cool friends. Teacher-friends are awesome as well...... we had a really crazy party last Friday.....Some have disapointed me for sure..... but I won't go into that right now.
Dammit. I was just about to get all morose, but now friends are over, and i'm getting yelled at to get off the computer.
More later? maybe.

I am seriously getting so sick of all the bullshit surrounding the deal between the rec centre and the school. I am caugt between a rock and a hard place working in there. I spend HOURS of my day that should be spent planning and marking, trying to organize getting things like lights And broken locks etc. Fixed. That is NOT my job!!!!!! And I get NO Thanks at all for Any of it. And you know whY??? I'm ok with it. All I expect in return is a little politeness as I try to figure out how to do things that are NOT my job and nobody has ever explained to me because it's NOT MY JOB. I get mixed messages and snarkiness. That's my reward for being proactive and trying to make sure our theater is actually useable. But who cares right, it's just the performing arts. GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Marking teats from one of my two awful year 7 general music classes, I almost wept when a student wrote "middle C" instead of just "c". The fact that something from the last lesson had sunk in enough to this one kid to elicit this answer really made everything so much easier. Although, the kid writing "K" and "J" as note names when I KNOW he knows those aren't real note names, made my blood boil. Sigh.
The little things, yes.
Oh, and at the school ball last weekend, our dep. Principal printed all the menus saying "a selection of soft dinks available". Tee hee!!

the heat is so great
it plays tricks with the eye
it turns the road to water
and then from water to sky
and there's a crack in the concrete floor
and it starts at the sink
there's a bathroom in a gas station
and i've locked myself in it to think
and back in the city
the sun bakes the trash on the curb
the men are pissing in doorways
and the rats run in herds
i've got a dream of your face
that scares me awake
i put too much on my table
and now i got too much a stake
and i might let you off easy
yeah i might lead you on
i might wait for you to look for me
and then i might be gone
where i come from and where i'm going
and i'm lost in between
i might go up to that phone booth
and leave a veiled invitation on you machine
and you'll stop me, won't you
if you've heard this one before
the one where i surprise you
by showing up at your front door
saying 'let's not ask what's next,
or how, or why'
i am leaving in the morning
so let's not be shy
the door opens, the room winces
and you'll stop me, won't you...

Because I'm just really happy.
Things have been so great lately.... my job is wonderful, I honestly feel that I was - meant- to be a teacher. I've been having a fantastic time with my friends, Jeremy and I are awesome, our new puppy is blowing my mind with how much fun we are having with her..... things just couldn't be better. I mean, we hired a CLEANER today. I remember how in high school one of my major life goals was to have enough money to hire a house cleaner, haha. And now we've done it.
I mean, i'm sure this is just an "up" time. Everyone has them, just like everyone has the "down" time. But I'm gonna damn well enjoy it before the "down" time hits.

My classes went well; the year nine drama class is creating a melodrama piece that already has me in tears, and they've only been working on it for two days. My year 7 band class were angels as usual, and are really starting to sound good; I've been able to start giving them notes on things like posture instead of things like "you are playing a completely different song that the rest of the class". My after-school music group was alot of fun as well, although I never get as far with them as I do with the classes that run in school hours.
There was also a sufficiently large amount of drama, that did not involve me in any way, to keep me highly entertained. A forgotten birthday cake (birthdays are HUGE at my school) and an insane fight at our department meeting, beginning with the words "Gunnell is just a fucking shitty teacher", made today probably the highlight of my week.
Finally, I came home to discover that my skinny jeans not only fit me again, but do not require lube and a pair of pliers to get on. I am going out to a birthday dinner in two hours, and plan on getting pleasantly buzzed on wine and good food (but not too much of either, if I want my skinny jeans to still fit me tomorrow).
There are only 3.5 weeks until Jeremy and I fly back to Canada; we've booked a week in Mexico to kick off our vacation, and the remaining 2.5 weeks will be spent seeing family and friends (and of course, massive amounts of shopping).
There are days where the voice inside my head spends alot of it's time bitching. About how buying -everything- over the Internet is a HUGE pain in the ass, how gossip spreads around this town like fire, about how ungrateful and rude children can be when they want to. Today is not one of those days. Today, things are really, really good.
Just a side note: I really should start writing more about the ridiculous things that happen at school. There are so many, and they do make me smile. Teaching really has put a different perspective on alot of my memories from highschool, haha.
