as of today

i don't know how good i am at updating...
tons of things have happened...

i applied for this job at bellefaire jcb
as we speak they are checking my references if all goes well...i should start the 17th.
i shadowed the after school program they have & loved it. I feel as though I inherited 10 boys [with anger management issues].
on the weekends [yes i have 2 jobs] I am a barista which I also love. I don't have any friends at home [but i am getting some!] And even though it'll be exhausting it'll keep me from spending all my money [no social life = shopping] it'll also be my social network

i visited chicago labor day weekend best idea i've had in a long time.
saw my friends got some peace of mind...& decided i am heading back there...not now but in a year or less.

i also bought season 2 of greys anatomy & it made my freaking year [remember? no social life]

cleveland has its downsides but...i am getting used to it.

freakish thing that happened to me yesterday & consequentially my last day at ol' slavy :
i ran into my sophomore chem teacher [a short, evil man with ivory hair]
how did i i spot him [ you might ask]
well, he was screaming at his biracial grandkids much like i remember him screaming at us for fucking with his beakers during lab.
i had an immediate flashback and when I came to he was pushing his cart full of cafe au lait kids toward my checkout.

now, i don't know what it is but i hate seeing people i know from one environment either from HS or that random community college course you took or little league [anything like that] anywhere outside of that...i HATE it. its awkward. i think someone once said its like seeing a dog walk on its hindlegs...

cue the next 9 awkward minutes of him grilling me about my 5 year plan and me trying to explain why i have a bachelor's and work at ol' slavy. [ thank GOD it was my last day].

classic moments like these are strictly reserved for those who may find themselves at home after graduation. they are definitely not for the faint of heart.

i'm pretty sure it was in 'mean girls' where janice said "i love seeing teachers outside of school. its like seeing a dog walk on its hind legs." haha yesss i love that movie! i watched it last night.

also, i think its stupid when people ask why you're at home after graduation. too bad like 90% of college graduates end up not having any idea what to do with their life and can't get a job right outside of graduation anyway.

just stumbled across your blog. i love this so much-especially the last few paragraphs. i hate that awkwardness too. and i am, as you are, home after graduation. it's just grand isn't it?

i hope you're doing alright down in cleveland.
