she took the midnight train going anywhere

I basically had the perfect weekend this past weekend. I had a friend visiting me and we sat around watching JGL movies, talking about fandom and life, and ordering all our meals in the form of delivery. We ended up watching Hesher, 50/50, Brick, Manic... and then ended the weekend by watching Reichenbach. (We clearly hate ourselves). Also, I don't think I ate any vegetables and felt like crap for the rest of Sunday, oops.

And now it's back to work. August is almost over and there are an increasing number of undergrads on campus. There's 2 weeks till classes start officially and we still don't have our TA assignments, go figure. I just want to know what my schedule is so I can plan the rest of my life? I'm in the process of applying for a part-time thing with the overnight programs at the Museum of Science. I think it'll be good teaching experience outside of academia, and also potentially fun.

Question though. The application form says that I have to list professional references, so I emailed both of the bio lab supervisors (who have seen most of my teaching) to ask if I could list them. The problem is that one of them has an out of office message and they won't be back till Sept. Is it bad if I list her anyway? What are the chances the museum even contacts any of them?

In more fun news, tv is still consuming my life. Teen Wolf ruins everything and I might be writing a thing. If I thought I could make it 15,000 words, I would sign up for the big bang, but right now it's just vague ideas... so I better not tempt fate. Speaking of writing, I have too many WIPs, I should get on that. (There is the Mentalist thing - which I have plotted, but words are HARD, I still have a Grimm Hogwarts AU on the backburner, I promised Manda I would do a 1D thing, ugh).

Grimm started last week and it is SO GOOD, you guys. I just needed everyone to watch this show because it gives me a lot of feelings and thoughts and I want to discuss it all forever. It's certainly not flawless, but the world it is building around the characters is just too good to skip. Can't wait to see where the season goes.

So yes, that is where I am right now.
