Bringing you and me up to date

What's been going down?

- Craziness - lots of extra hours (thankfully I'm getting paid)
- Lots of issues with the community at hand and the issues are coming onto our campus
- Getting good admin practice

- FINALLY - A MONTH LONG BREAK, then class resumes again in January
- Going to use this month to get all my fieldwork done

- Something every weekend until the first weekend of the year... yay!!! Travel!!!

Black Friday:
- Nothing is catching my eye... yet.
- I will probably be at the hospital with my cousin visiting her newborn baby.

My partner:
- He's great, he's working a little and I'm working a lot
- He has dinner ready for me when I get home, and I couldn't be more thankful

- Getting my name out there. At a conference right now in a boring session. I am sitting at the back typing this. Learning tons of cool new things to try in my classroom - unfortunately all of these will take time.
- Was asked to present at a state conference soon, which is another good way to get my name out there

Tunes you need to know

Tune Thursday

This has been stuck in my head all day - not a Sam fan.

I feel like I could almost follow Drake's moves.

What a sexy voice

After hearing this song for months it is growing on me.

And while I'm on a music tangent...
- What happened to Easton Corbin lately? He's recording all these crappy songs that aren't showing his true vocal abilities.

And I need to rant about Carrie Underwood's Smoke Break. Of course she needs a smoke break, but she doesn't smoke, and she's a good Christian, covered her bases for a typical Carrie Underwood song. Terrible.

I've got to go. Elex just came on TV and I cannot take it.

Thai Massage

Has anyone ever had one? I want to try. I hear it hurts like hell the day after, but I'm curious. Is it better/more relaxing than deep tissue?

The girl who had been my regular deep tissue massage girl just ain't cutting it. She hasn't been getting out knots that I've told her about, and she acknowledges are there, because she wants to be sure to get my entire body. Give me a good massage and target the areas/troubleshoot completely where I'm having issues please.

Keeping up events

Usually I am the friend in contact with everyone - always messaging asking what's up. I did it all through undergrad, graduate, and now my 2nd graduate credential I seem to be slacking.

I am fine with that. My partner is now our social coordinator - not that he wasn't before - I just went with the flow, but he knows the what and is making the plans with all our friends. I'm the person suddenly that takes hours to respond to a text. It is kind of interesting. I appreciate the random texts/hellos I get from friends who notice I am incommunicado.

We've got some good times coming up -
- Last weekend we were in the desert visiting some friends of my partner's
- This past weekend we were in LA and spent the night there for a flight my partner had this morning. Had a nice brunch yesterday.
- We've got something planned nearly every weekend for the forseeable future.

Honestly I am loving the travel, it is just what I need to keep me sane. It provides an escape.
