a. Put in my two weeks' on Monday. There's enough saved up to pay for next year's barrage of standardized testing and AP's, plus random shopping trips and books, so I'm satisfied ("Are you sure you can't work weekends during the year?" Fuck yes, I'm sure, it's hot and I hate kids). Future facts, advice, and other miscellany for all theme-park visitors: 1) it's not my fault your kid is too short, so don't bitch to me; 2) if you just had a beer, do not ride; 3) talk to the people on duty, because they're bored and hot and exhausted and it will make their day; 4) if you don't want to pay four bucks for a bottle of water, ask the guy working the ride if you can get water from his jug; 5) if we're getting a girl out of the coaster and into a wheelchair because she's obviously suffering from heat exhaustion and vomiting like nobody's business, do NOT expect me to sympathize with the ten minutes more you have to wait in line.
b. Have completed summer school! Joy.
c. Have a stack of books to read that is circa two feet high (...so why am I on livejournal?). Currently: finishing Anna Karenina (am simultaneously enamored and annoyed with it), beginning To The Lighthouse (because regular doses of Virgina Woolf help to buffer everything else I spend time on), taking notes on 1776, and perusing Sense and Sensibility (because I finally found an edition with a satisfactory cover).
d. Found the grandiloquent dictionary yesterday! Because everyone should indulge in the occasional bombasticism.
e. FINALLY set up an optometry appointment and got a contact on Friday...yes, only one. Apparently my vision is wtf-worthy; Dr. McAwesome implied rather more candidly than I would have that whoever gave me my license was on crack, which is always a nice notion to consider. Her adopted daughter is going to attend Health Careers, which I was thinking rather seriously of transferring to (but didn't, because it would have killed my ranking and ego)...oh, those Asians.
f. Now officially support the world's best political non-campaign ever! You know you want the ( shirt...Collapse )
g. Am scared of schedule issues like nobody's business. FIVE dreams; I jest not. Honestly now, that's pushing the limits of sanity. I AM, however, beyond ready for hell year. BRING IT. (Though we ARE going to be required to wear IDs now...someone needs to explain the purpose of this to me, because I don't get it. So kids from other campuses don't come in? Yeah, because they would obviously WANT to be here. Administration is dumb.)
And thus ends the blatant self-centered egotism. Kind of, at least. Here's music:
Apres Moi - Regina Spektor (this is probably an acquired taste, but what the hell, we'll try)
The Galaxy Song - Monty Python (yes, seriously!)
