On Monday, I had to work for thirteen hours straight, which exhausted me all the way through Wednesday ._. This morning was the first time this whole week that I haven't felt tired to death (and sick for one reason or another, and hating food because my appetite was so non-existent), though I really, really, really did not want to go to work today. But I'm home now, and I have tomorrow off (thank God), so I'll see what things I can get done. Hopefully resume work on Urgent Thing, some writing, and...and maybe I should keep my goals limited, so I don't get mad at myself when I fail at them. ^^;
I read the Orange
manga. I liked it, it was really sweet. I think that's also probably the ONLY LOVE TRIANGLE EVER that I actually...not "liked," exactly, but...it wasn't the usual sort of love triangle that I hate; the two boys actually loved
each other (platonically), despite the fact that they were both in love with the same girl. Their conflict over her strained their relationship a little, but never twisted it like you see in so many other romances; for both of them, friendship and romance were equally important. Seeing Suwa hug Kakeru at the finish line of their relay race was so beautiful.
I forgot if I said it here already, but I've for sure decided to quit substitute teaching after this school year ends in June. I decided this in March, after a horrendous assignment made me realize that modern children in my country are complete monsters
and I can't handle them anymore. (I couldn't even just give up, sit at the desk, and read a book; they were THAT BAD. ALL DAY LONG. It was literally my worst subbing assignment ever.) And then stuff like Monday keeps confirming my decision.... I should have quit subbing the year I got hired at the library. I thought
I'd be able to get my act together and sub regularly and have two sources of income, but after more than three years, it's never worked out that way, and the stress of subbing is not worth the bit of money I occasionally get from it. Good riddance, kids. I don't know what you think the point of school is; you're obviously
not there to get an education. And even if you refuse to do any work, why the frick can't you just sit in a chair and murmur to your friends? WHY is it vitally essential for you to act like the classroom is LITERALLY an elementary school playground, complete with running, jumping, wrestling, throwing, climbing, and screaming???? What is wrong with kids these days? What is wrong with parents these days, who would teach their kids that it's ever, under any circumstances, acceptable to behave like that in a classroom?
23 April 2017
I have no idea why, but this past week I've been working hard on one of my two most urgent real life projects, that I procrastinated on for three and a half years. While I'm amazed and proud of myself for finally
buckling down on this, I thought it would be a good idea to help myself along using the "get work done during anime commercial breaks" method, like I did with Haikyuu!!
Mistake. While I have
been getting a lot done, the cost is too high; getting sucked into a long series is literally bad for my health. I've got one episode left to go in this series, and then I'm going to give up on the "anime commercials" method of getting work done. I'm technically not old yet, but I'm not a kid anymore, and it takes me at least three days to physically recover from a late night (going to bed past midnight). I have got
to take much, much better care of my eyes.
I've been wanting to WRITE a lot this week, too, so maybe after this episode, I'll switch over to drafting fanfiction as my "work bribe." Hopefully it should be easy, since these past few days I've also been working on a lot of outlining and planning. Drafting, especially purposeful drafting (as opposed to stress-relief drafting) is easier when I've laid the groundwork and am not relying entirely on inspiration.
Since I've been on a roll with getting stuff organized, I might take a stab at organizing my physical writing next. Currently, all my notebooks and papers are jumbled together in a box, but maybe I can work on labeling the notebooks and folders with their contents. This might help a lot with fics like Carried Off
, if I can easily FIND all the notes and drafts for them rather than getting discouraged because they're scattered.
I also finally
organized all my e-mail back to the way it was before the wireless mess. It meant I didn't get to talk to a friend as much as I'd hoped to, and I still need to do the same with my DA messages, but my e-mail account feels more restful to me now.
Let's see, what fiction have I been consuming lately.... I tried the first volume and a few episodes of One Piece
. Not really my cup of tea, though I knew that going in. I did really like Luffy's voice in the anime.
I still haven't finished watching Queen of Katwe
, but I like it so far. OH, and I finally saw Sing
and really enjoyed it!! It's another one of those movies that follows a classic formula and is not very original, but it's so well done that you don't really care. XD I'm also halfway through Star Wars: Rogue One
(let's see if I can finish it before the due date this time X'D). I didn't like it at first, but it got better once the main story started. I love that robot.
I want to read more of the My Hero Academia
manga (I don't think the anime has reached where I left off yet, even with the new season), but my library still hasn't bought anything past volume 5.... I put in a purchase request for volume 6; we'll see what happens.
