I'm really bad at organizing thoughts into paragraphs. I've said this before, but - for some reason - reiterating it seems like a sensible sort of idea. I mean to organize them, but then I get distracted and forget and by the time I remember again, the whole thought that I wanted to write out is outdated.

I need some sort of direct filter into my brain. So that my nonsense will write itself out for me.

But, obviously, that plan is a very flawed one and I get very little done while waiting for my awesome brain powers to kick in. (They don't seem like they want to anytime soon. Which is vastly uncool of them.) So, I'm going to sit on my ass right now and write out the (not-so-)epic story of my Graduate School life.

You can totally run away now and save yourselves the trouble of hearing me blather on uselessly if you like.Collapse )

More visible babbling, for which I am eternally apologetic.

Today was interesting. And long. And it isn't even time for dinner yet. The beginning of school - especially preschool - is intense. It's times like this when I really wish that we had naptime. Naptime is nice.

On the Trifecta of Joy.Collapse )

I have a niece!

(Okay, so not technically my niece. It's my not!cousin's daughter. But I'll still claiming Aunt-Status.)

She's two weeks early, and maybe it's not the best of days, but it's sort of nice to have something good to celebrate today.

Sometimes, I'm an utter sap.

But, oh, you can't help but love love.

Family is finally back from the hospital! The Brat already has his computer, television, phone, and Wii on and is using all of the above simultaneously. Life, as we know it, has resumed.

Sample dialog, from pretty much three seconds after coming in the front door:
Mom: Did I tell you yet how Connor screamed that his 'dick was broken' after the nurse took out his catheter?
Dad: *wailing* She broke my dick! I'm probably sterile!
Connor: I hate you both.
Mom: Your father laughed. I thought they were going to escort him out of the hospital. Or give him a breathing mask.
Dad: Oh, come on. Jackie would have laughed - tell them you would have laughed.
Me: I would have laughed.
Connor: And I hate you too.

God, I love my family.

I'm really bad at writing coherent paragraphs about my own life that make any sort of sense, because my tendency to get sidetracked apparently doesn't translate quite as well when in written form. Maybe it's the lack of accompanying hand-gestures?

But, yes. CURRENT LIFE SUMMARY. For all those that actually care about my boring life? Yes.

Summer job is at a Day Care. It would be far more awesome if my boss gave me my schedule more than a day in advance. (This is, of course, not to imply that I have a life. Because I don't. But still.) But, unfortunately, I never have any idea when I'm coming in from one day to the next - and I never have any idea what room I'm going to be in on any given day.

I don't mind any of the rooms, really. They're divided by age group, though I tend to spend most of my time in the Infant Room. Which is educational, to say the least. Parenting, whenever or if I ever happen to get there, is going to be a major step down to Easyville. There will only be one infant involved. Not twelve. Parenting is going to be a breeze.

Which is a slightly disturbing sentiment, if I think about it for too long.

On the upside, I was forced to take a seven hour long (and three hours late) CPR class today - so I can totally save the lives of infants and young children who cannot breathe or are suffering from spontaneous cardiac arrest! If I don't pass out on them first.

On the familial side of this summer, the Brat had back surgery (for scoliosis) on Friday and should be home by this Wednesday if he can manage to get his butt out of bed and walking around enough to satisfy his doctors. So I've been running back and forth between here and NYU Medical Center all weekend. Everything went well though - and he's managed to gain himself another three inches out of the deal.

It's kind of not right. He really didn't need to be any taller. Sasquatch.

Being in the house all by myself is weird. And by weird, I mean horribly boring. It was never this mind-numbing when left alone in the dorm room. Maybe it's the sheer amount of space. House = way too huge to be alone in.

I swear, if I didn't have the puppy (and my DVD-player) around I'd be losing my mind.

And I'm going to shut up now.

My theses are all handed in.

The last day of classes of undergraduate-ness is over.

That's just weird.

(One day I'm going to make a post that has actual substance, I swear.)

Done, done, and DONE!

That's right theses, you irritating little (HA! LIES!) pains in my ass, you are finished and I never want to look at you again and I am going to print out extra copies of you just so I can set you on fire.

And it will be glorious.

... granted, I have to go write a paper for Literary Criticism now. But that's entirely besides the point.
