baby you light up my world like nobody else.

Oh hai.

It has been a bit of a month. Teaching is kicking my ass. It's two labs a week and I'm just constantly playing catch-up because I have learn the material, prep the labs, teach.. and then do all the grading. It would probably be easier if my weekends were less tied up, but.. yeah...

That being said, I am actually enjoying this lab more than I expected. I have never been particularly interested in A&P, but it's a lot more interesting than I thought? I mean, the circulatory system was terrible and I would like to forget it exists, but the rest is actually fun. (We are ignoring the pile of grading that is currently sitting next to me).

As for my weekends... they are all about family time right now until the end of June. My grandmother is here from Chile and she is leaving much earlier than usual. Unfortunately, this means she is leaving right about when my teaching stuff STOPS so I can't even take a few extra days to spend with her at home. The thing that sucks the most is that in general I have a hard time being at home and dealing with... things.... that I don't want to talk about.... so I am going home every weekend to be with her but then I also just hate things and don't want to be there. Ugh. Also, my brother is moving to Colorado on July 10th and things are just very complicated at the moment.

On the plus side, this weekend is the town fair and I am very excited. Kettle corn! Snocones! Art fair and buying pretty things! Food! Library book sale! I basically LIVE for this thing, so I can't wait to spend my Saturday at it. Then I have friend plans on Sunday that will include watching movies about silly boybands and arts & craft time. ...So you can see why I am so swamped with grading otherwise. /woe.

So... that is the state of my life. I am still counting down the days to Comic-Con and starting to wonder when I am even going to have time to finish my costume sewing for it.
