I believe we left off with Casey Anthony. Not gonna recap that.
Since our last chat, I have become a Swim Instructor for the YMCA of Arlington. I taught almost exclusively preschool classes for the past session, and then a private backyard lesson for one young adorable almost-three year-old girl named Claire... and it was interesting. Even though I came home every day irritable, worn out, and just wanting to crash wherever I could find room, it was totally worth it. Those kids, even when I wanted to just let them sink, were retardedly cute. Even when they were gouging my skin with their little claws, and trying to strangle me, and screaming in my ears, they were still kinda cute. They took their toll though. All in all, I'm glad I'm a swim instructor. Even through all the negatives, I was, after all, teaching kids to not die in the water, as well as firmly crossing early childhood education off of my list of possible vocations. Just no. I was not blessed with that kind of patience.
Then came the weekend! Thursday night saw me and Stephanie driving down to College Station for the midnight premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 with a bunch of our friends.
After all that Excitement, I spent the night at my good friend Jon Hernandez's house where we stayed up till 5 am talking. Not a great idea. The next morning saw us up early and working (painting) on stuff for our Awakening table (i.e. the box, sign and my costume). Yeah, we know we procrastinated. It all worked out in the end though because they looked awesome!
|Not too bad for just a few hours work!|
Pretty soon we were under way for Somerville, Texas, and Aggie Awakening 92!! As always, an incredible, humbling experience. I was a Table Gopher for Table 5, and they just blew me away. But more about Awakening later.
Here's some good ol' liturgical chant for the road
