Brought To You By Jolly Rancher- Apple Flavor

I'm sort of in love with hard candy right now. It's just fun to have something to entertain my mouth when gum or candy isn't an option. It's really hard to eat food in the classroom, and chewing gum is annoying while I talk. This is much less obvious, and also tasty!

I'm doing a week of English subbing at the Freshman school starting tomorrow. I love the Freshman school. The faculty has been so great, I feel completely welcome there. I travelled around on Wednesday for teachers who had meetings during the day, and most of the time the teachers returned before I had to relieve another and I was able to have a conversation with them. Maybe I'm just starved for interaction. But I don't want to just be some substitute who comes in and watches the class, then takes off. I want them to know that I am capable of being in charge and that I'm not inferior simply because I don't have a teaching certificate. Not that any of them treat me like that, but I can see how it might be possible. If I'm going to do something, I want to know how to do it well. At the library, I got so bored. I knew how to do everything and it turned into something so monotanous. This job changes all the time. Whether it's because I'm subbing for science or math, or even English, it's always something new. Love it!

I really need to run to the post office, walk Hunt, shower, and dress for dinner at the Casino. I sort of want to sew instead.
