"This buisnesss is not just...sending men home from dark and bloody battlefeilds physically handicapped and psychologically deranged can not be reconcilled with wisdom, justice, and love. A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spriritual death."

i have been working on my edublog and re-creating my resume due to my computer being a piece of you know what. i don't want to type it, or it might rebel (again) by completely deleting my entire hard drive (again x3?)
i have been feeling pretty polarized lately. i go from wanting to do nothing to wanting to do everything. i think this stems from the fact that i do not want to fail, and thus making me either extremely anal and motivated, or thus making me not want to try at all for fear of failing. not sure if that makes sense. it seems to make sense to me right now.
my mouth is constantly dry lately. i needs to get me some water. slurp slurp slurp.
the hair is finally getting long, or so people seem to be telling me. still not long enough. grow hair, grow!
re-reading The Great Gatsby was a fun experience for me.
mark and i think that mr. hoppus is indeed a boy. we are not sure. he scampers in circles around my feet, which apparently means he wants to court with me.
for those of you who don't know, mark and i got a bunny. he is a blackish-grey lop eared dwarf with whitish paws. he's moved into brookline and is being the most lovable adorable little man right now. he has been laying next to me for almost 30 minutes now letting me rub his nose. he just let out a big yawn and closed his eyes and i think he might just fall asleep. this type of behavior is almost unheard of for bunnies. ode to mr. hoppus you are so cute so soft so michevious right now you are so sleepy you love oranges and spinach and alfalfa and carrots and apples
-student teaching is spectacular. minus the whole me not really having a college kid life as a result. i am learning so much, and am still all about teaching. i've realized student teaching is really not like teaching at all, and if i can make it through this, having my own classroom is going to be out of this world. oh, and i hate dressing "like a teacher", pah to that. -sometimes life likes to downpour on me: losing my hard-drive for the 2nd time in 1 year, the power in this apartment being shitty, just little things. so really it's just a downpour of annoyances that all seem to come at once. all just life's little lessons about getting by. -pumpkins rule. plain and simple. -i miss my friends. particularly gal pals. -my room is going to be pretty bangin' when i put up my new curtians and tapestry! -i will be turning 21 on october 30th. i have a faculty meeting this day (monday), so i shall be going out for drinks at midnight. not an all out slosh-fest, but a good time. do come. location to be decided. -i love halloween and can't wait to rock my costume with mark!
my major post graduation plans are as follows: live with mark, get puppy!!, not go to graduate school, and move out of massachusetts towards the western part of the country. everything beyond that.....?
"Unsimilar to a war, knitting signals home, care, closeness and time for reflection. Ever since Denmark became involved in the war in Iraq I have made different variations of pink tanks, and I intend to keep doing that, until the war ends. For me, the tank is a symbol of stepping over other people’s borders. When it is covered in pink, it becomes completely unarmed and it loses it’s authority. Pink becomes a contrast in both material and color when combined with the tank. "
