today was SO GREAT... nice and cool and sunny. I rode my bike up to the gym and back. really nice, I didn't bring a gym bag or anything, so when I went in I left my sunglasses at the front desk next to their monitor. the place is pretty small and community/family oriented so no big deal. anyway, I was laughing on the way out 'cause I grabbed my sunglasses and I heard the girls at the desk talking to each other about "why is it guys never care about losing stuff...." ha.
this week has been not bad at all, sent a kid to ISS ( in school suspension) today and tomorrow for "defiance of authority" and "disrepect" blah blah basically just means he wouldn't do anything in class and just say there .. .the newcomer I mentioned from honduras who was smuggled in and left for dead in the desert of AZ and now lives with his dad. well we've been really patient and trying to work with the kid but he's been downright awful this week anyway made for some good classes today and tomorrow with him gone. the kids are so great. man 9th grade boys are so squirrely. thing is I can already notice some of them gaining weight and growing from all the american food they're getting. ha well it could just be their age but still....
I'm getting excited for NYC. I finally bought a plane ticket for OCT 25-29. I think that's a Tue to Sat.. I flew back SAT night because it's cheaper than SUn. I'm researching the net tonight to see what things maybe are going on that week in NYC. THis trip I'll be on my own and visiting with some former students living in NYC and also shopping and seeing sites etc etc. blah blah. Monocle store in west village...any suggestions, I'm taking 'em. basically this trip will be to do all the things I want to run around and do. since my DEcember trip will be about showing around my sisters.
since I was gone all last weekend in AUSTIN, I am looking forward to chill chill chilling all weekend.. also catch up on stuff at home and my night class. Good news btw, I'm crazy, I know, but I agreed to take over another night class on Thursdays in November and first couple weeks of December.... which actually now that I think about it, I'm not going to be there the last class 'cause I'm flying to NYC that morning. ha. anyway, I'm excited for the extra cash.... also I am going to be working for an after school program starting up in OCT I think.. twice a week. that will be be easy money $40 an hour, so for an hour and a half after school twice a week makes 3 hours a week and some extra CASHAROONI. ha ha.. I know people reading this blog will say what other people have said to me, 3 jobs? that's so American! ha
ahh well. I'm up for it. My bud in Austin got hired on fulltime w/ benefits at his job he's been working at through a temp agency, so that's awesome. tomorrow is jeans day at work, so good. my house is a complete wreck . ha! but it's cool. I got excited about some extra income coming in so today I went online and subscribed again to Dwell magazine which I let run out this summer. and then I was due to resubscribe to Monocle magazine. which this will be my third free totebag with a renewal. ha.. it really doesn't take much to get me excited bout things. the small things always get me like that. ok I'm back to suring the internet for a redbud tree 'Ruby Falls' that I've been wanting for a while. also Salix integra "flamingo' from forestfarm. these are on my current shopping list. I'm still resisting getting the gray suede shoes.. but perhaps with one of the next few paychecks. I still have to save up for fall break in NYC after all. taking all suggestions. hope all have been having a good week.
