Good vibes on the Seawall yesterday…

Venice piece, full shot.  Waiters and spirits and memories…

so busy

  • I’ve been teaching tech camps for the past few weeks. The kids this year are awful. First week we had to kick one of the kids out, third week we had a crazy crazy girl who made my job so much harder. Having bad kids makes me not want to go to work. I just want them to listen to me and follow the rules! 
  • I’m teaching something I’ve never taught tomorrow and am a bit worried…but I guess it will be okay? claymation is supposed to be the least tech heavy I hear
  • I rode in a bike race today. it was a 5am morning with 50km worth of peddling through rain and up death hills. It took a while and I’m currently exhausted but glad that I did it. 
  • Went to get a pedicure to relax after a tiring morning, except their clothes dryer wouldn’t turn off so they pulled the fuse and everything turned off. as you would expect. 
  • A long call with a close friend who’s far away… things are beginning to seem more distant. 
  • Getting to the end of my design job. I’m really not a designer. At least I get paid
  • trying to find time for friends and boys except all I want to do after work is go home and sleep. 
  • I keep thinking how I’d rather be in Europe or somewhere exciting and new rather than starting another school year at the same university in the same city while living with the same person.
I found a little friend in the driveway
