It’s Friday everyone!!
You happy? Hope so.
You know I’m only half mean girl, right? But the truth is: I’m on the bus and someone really smells. Not sweaty, more homelessy. It’s making it hard for me to breathe. I refuse to breathe through my mouth because if I don’t want to smell it, I certainly don’t want to eat it. I’m probably going to hell. I hope it’s clean there.
Oh, I just got a sign. The driver decided to turn on the heating. I’m not making this up, you guys. There’s hot air coming from the vents. Just what we needed in this crowded, smelly bus.
We’ve finally watched This is Us. Rui loves the show as much as I do but he was not too impressed with the Super Bowl episode. I wish I could discuss this and not spoil it. I loved the episode. I cried a lot. Let’s leave it at that.
It’s the just the best show. If you aren’t watching it you’re 100% missing out, both on the show and the endless changes of conversation with the rest of the world, since everyone is talking about it.
By the way, doesn’t Mandy Moore have this beautiful good person smile? In every single picture.
I’m finally off that awful bus, thankfully. Yes, I’m working. I’m with a student. I do blog while they’re doing their exercises. Or I read or pretend to update my schedule. I think it’s DEAD CREAPY to stare at them from across the table when they’re working. They get 100% my full attention when I’m helping them, teaching, explaining, answering questions, but I give them some “privacy” while doing their worksheets or writing.
I remember sitting across from a teacher countless times and some of them would look at me while I was working (or worse, taking a test) and I would get paranoid: “Why are they looking? Can they read what I’m writing? Can teachers read upside down? (WE CAN) Is she looking because I’m doing something wrong? Does she think I’m stupid? Maybe I shouldn’t write this, she’ll judge me”.
So, you see. The paranoid student became a paranoid teacher, who doesn’t like to stare. I’m not as discreet if we’re working as a group because I look around at everybody.
Did you experience such issues as a student?
Remember I told you I had to work on about 1500 beauty product descriptions for a website. I’m lucky I can write because, apparently, I cannot read. It’s 1000 actually. I didn’t work too much yesterday so I’m still at about 320, I think. Thankfully, it’s work I like to do. I was hoping to work this morning but I took my pills too late last night and I slept in (and still feel very snoozy). I think I’m working a little tonight. Or maybe I’ll leave it because it’s Friday night and work on Saturday and Sunday. I’m hoping to be done by Sunday, that would be great.
If you (not so) secretly follow the Kardashians (which Rui always uses against me) you probably now by now that Kylie Jenner had given birth and that she named her daughter Stormi. I mean, when I first saw it I thought it was cute because I thought it was short for something. Nope. It’s her name. Okay, it’s kind of nice that her parents like butterflies and that butterfly effect shit about causing a storm but I don’t know. I like candy and I’m not naming my first born “Skittle”. I guess I’d like it better if it were spelled “Stormy” or “Stormee”. I’m not feeling the final “I”. Just needed to discuss this with someone, obviously not Rui 🙄
I’ve began reading this book – which means I’ve got it, opened the first page and haven’t touched it yet. The app is new too, for my non-kindle ebooks that I get somewhere online.
Are you familiar with this tittle or author? I picked it randomly and have no idea what to expect or what’s it even about.
It’s Carnival here on Tuesday, which means people get costumes, get drunk, there’s parades and parties and such. It’s similar to Halloween but scarier because there are a bunch of dudes that decide to dress up as women so you see way too many manly, hairy legs in skirts.
I haven’t celebrated since 11th grade since my girlfriends and I dressed up as FBI agents. I’ll probably get back at it once I have kids and dress them up as little bees and such.
At least we get Monday and Tuesday off. I get Wednesday too (Rui doesn’t) but I need to get to work in the morning for this tutoring session for a student who needs extra help.
I’m sitting at my classroom with my colleague and exactly two students. Everyone else is either gone already or not coming. It’s usually like this before a holiday.
It’s freezing and it’s going to rain but that doesn’t seem to stop the parades or party goers.
Yes, it’s cold for us. And it gets way colder at night.
It’s taken me 3 hours to write this post.
I would love to hear about your past costumes!!

Oh boy..that brought back memories….I hated when teachers stared at me when doing exams etc. I think If i had been a teacher I would be like you. Im ok with different names…but do parents really think of what happens when their child goes to school. They get laughed at and made to look stupid. I should know my birth name caused me so much grief at school..which is why I have altered it a little. Sounds exciting about the carnival.
I also found it unsettling when teachers would just sit and stare as you were working or doing a test. It made it harder for me to concetrate. Staring is fine if you’re helping explain something, but if there’s no need for it, then don’t 😂
The second series of This is Us has not started in UK yet so thank for no spoilers.

Of course. I can never catch the episodes as soon as they come out and I always accidentally read major spoilers online. It’s terrible

So do I. They’re usually really clean around here but today there were apparently two culprits. You could almost trace the smell. Just get in the shower and do some laundry, people.
This Is Us hits home for me. I love that show so much!! I always get excited when people talk about it!! And your comment about naming your kid “Skittles” made me laugh so hard! 😂
Oh man, I’m up to Season 2 episode 9 on This is Us (ish – can’t remember exactly!) and I’m loving it, don’t want it to end! x
