The End of EvangelionImage via Wikipedia
I keep thinking how incredibly happy I am to actually be using my degree. At this new job, I am so much more involved in the treatment of the kids.

I finished watching Evangelion. I'm not sure what to think yet. I'm still processing it. But I did enjoy it, and I'm glad I've seen it. I feel I have a little more credibility as an anime snob. It's not my favorite series, but I can see why people like it. Also, is there something weird in the DVD menu for Volume 8? Because it's either that or I was hallucinating last night...But I still want to watch End of Evangelion.

....The annoying Mexicans who have taken over my fiance's house are starting to make me hate Spanish. I'm sorry, but it's true. They're loud, nasty liars, and I hate them. My nerves can't take it. And they're taking advantage of him and his Mom and PISSING ME OFF.

So yes, I feel like I'm way more involved in the actual treatment of the kids I am working with now. I get to talk to them daily about their goals, and about the principles we are trying to teach them. I got to talk at length to one girl, H, yesterday about education and she was really excited about it. She said she felt inspired and we talked about different ways she could apply it to her life. I hope I can help her reach her potential.

I write you visions

In 2006, I was talking to acoustic by night on MSN about people in exclusive (and excluding) relationships. I was dating a jerk (though I didn't know it at the time) and my friends were slowly inching away from me.
I believed too many lies. My dear little black dog was still alive. I was finding and making a new home, in a new place.
I kept things from people...important things, things that might have saved me. We talked of the difference between like and love.
I found out the jerk I was dating might have a son. That was fun. Then I found out the girl who might be pregnant with his son didn't want anything to do with him. So that was fun too. But I made cd for him for our first anniversary, and wrote him a heartfelt letter.
I was still attending a small Christian liberal-arts college. My friends and I started the joke that I might be a zombie due to my low blood pressure. My best friend was dating, and I was very happy for her. The jerk had constant migraines that terrified me. I was learning (very slowly and with many mistakes) to balance friendships and dating, and Lord of the Rings was the cool new movie. I was still getting over a 4 year unrequited crush. My grades were slowly declining.
To be continued...
