I made a passover lasagna yesterday and it went over really well! Erin (my sister-in-law) loved it, which is great because she was one reason for making it. Every year my ENTIRE family forgets she's a vegatarian so she makes something small that others can eat, and so she has something as well. This year she would only have been able to eat sweet potatos and asparagus, so I made a spincach lasagna.

My intentions were not as noble as that though. Mostly...I've been having a wicked bad craving for lasagna and I didn't know what to make for the sedar so I thought I would give it a shot. I was very pleased =) (also, I finally took steps to take care of that little passover problem I have each year, hopefully it will work)

On a totally unrelated note I have finished the skirt and vest (kind of) for my cosplay, HOWEVER, I can't figure out how to take in the friggin' vest to get it to fit me right. Both me and my dress form are quite distraught over it!

HOORAY! I decided to start my own website where I can sell crochet projects (primarily ami) and eventually purses and aprons and other sewing things once I move to a place where we have a second bedroom because it is SUCH a pain in the ass to try to drag out my machiene from the closet.

I need extra money and it's something I like to do =)

It's upish right now but all it says is "underconstruction" but you can check out my format I guess, anyway it's
I got my letter of rec from Christina (WTHS) and it was the exact opposite of Ron's which is GREAT because a) it shows development and b) it explains everthing I've done and then some.

In all fairness though, Ron did some rewrites, explaining I taught all but one class by myself . It's still the same minimalist view of my teaching, but it least it says the truth this time (mostly). I am less upset, but sometimes talking to him is like talking to a wall, he won't budge on some things and said it's best to say little so he can clairfy, but I'm nervous as to what he will say at that point when and if he's called. I just don't know if I can trust him as much. I just need to hope for the best at this point. I know it's silly, but what can I say, I'm a very irrational person.


You know, the whole point of me getting a haircut was so it didn't take me so long to do my hair, but now it takes even longer!!!!!!

I came back to empty apartement tonight, and I feel bad saying this, but it was soooooooo nice. Jarrett won't be home until one and I really needed the peace and quiet. I'm going to have a glass of wine, take a bubble bath, and read some J.D Robb.

The only thing that would make this even more perfect, is if chocolate with 0 calories existed ;)

Prettiful Movie

Just FYI, Alice in Wonderland is not only beautiful to watch, but fun. If you're a fan of Tim Burton and his take on the exceptionally bizarre, you won't be disappointed!

Work is fun, people are weird and I get to ask customers to do stange things to save money that revolve around public embarassment. I find myself pleased.
I got a sweet new bad-ass hair cut =) I feel like Eve, which I needed after yesterday and this afternoon.

What? Wait...WHAT????

So I received my letter of recommendation from Ron, happy moment right? WRONG! I wish I hadn't read what it said. I kept reading it see if perhaps I was over reacting and to some extent I was. However there is still one thing seriously pissing me off,

"Our drama curriculum included these courses: Drama I, Drama II, Drama III, Comedic Acting, Improv Theatre, and Studio Theatre. Miss Nixon had some responsibility in all of the class offerings by the end of her student teaching experience."

SOME??? BULLSHIT RON!!!! How about the fact that I did YOUR work so YOU wouldn't get in trouble with your boss? Or the fact that I wasn't suppose to teach for the first three weeks, but  YOU got sick the second day so I began to teach ALL your classes BY MYSELF! Or how about this! How about when you were sick for two weeks so I had to finish tech and all the runs of Sweeney by myself and finished student teaching WITHOUT YOU!  YOU DIDN'T MENTION ANY OF THOSE THINGS! DID YOU?!

I DID THE GRADING! I WROTE THE LESSONS! I ANSWERED YOUR E-MAILS! I CALLED THE PARENTS!  I WROTE HALF THE CURRICULUM YOU ARE USING NOW IN DRAMA III! You even asked my permission for them and the best thing you can say is that I had good attendance??? WHAT THE FUCK! SCREW YOU!

If I'm as dumb as you paint me to look, why give me an A? Why ask me back to help you with your shows?

I really, really, really want to believe I'm over reacting, but it still sounds the same to me. I'm ok with constructive criticism, I know I'm not perfect and I'm still a beginning teacher, but this just makes me look like a moron.

Now that i finished ranting, I'm not mad anymore, just really hurt.
