I am starting to think that I am too eager to please, especially when it comes to work. My father instilled a very strong work ethic in me at a young age and by example taught me that working late nights for no overtime just so that you can stand out as a model employee is worth it. To his credit, this mentality has served him well (as an employee, debatable as a father). The other reason I think I am too eager to please in the workplace is that I have been hired for most of my jobs based on connections through family. I feel added pressure because it is not only my reputation but my family or friends reputation on the line as well.

So as I get ready to start my job tomorrow, working for the same ESL school as TFG, I am freaked. While there is the initial pressure of starting a new job, there is the added pressure that every time I speak with my new boss the responsibilities keep growing. I will be the "Supervising Coordinator" for a teen summer program of international students here in the city to learn English. I was told that all of the afternoon activities were booked and I would be confirming booking. Now it seems that not only are there no bookings, it will also be my responsibility to determine what "good activities" will be.

Shoot me now.

Bring on the Vegetarianism

So my dad made ribs this weekend and I've never been a big fan, they always make me feel like a Neanderthal. As I am mowing down on this bad boys I came across a vein. Then I saw this , am I the only one completely disgusted by the thought of a pre-teen running around the woods with a pistol?

I'm thinking I might stick to tofu for a few weeks.

Good News Everybody!
So I'm walking on the beach up at the cottage this weekend with TFG and he turns to me and says
"You know you are my best friend, right?"
"Yes, and you are mine"
"And you know I want to have a house and babies and a life with you, right?"
"Of course"
"So, [bends on one knee, pulls out beautiful ring] would you like to marry me?"

So there you have it ladies and gents, Little Miss Knit will soon be Little Mrs. Knit (but not Little Mrs. TFG!)

See Ya Jerry!
Well Jerry Falwell is dead, apparently the human body can only handle so much hatred and anger.
Can we look back at some of his more famous quotes?

“It appears that America's anti-Biblical feminist movement is at last dying, thank God, and is possibly being replaced by a Christ-centered men's movement which may become the foundation for a desperately needed national spiritual awakening”

“The whole (global warming) thing is created to destroy America's free enterprise system and our economic stability”

“(re: 9/11 attacks) "...throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools, the abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked and when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad...I really believe that the pagans and the abortionists and the feminists and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way, all of them who try to secularize America...I point the thing in their face and say you helped this happen."”

When he finds out that God is actually a feminist lesbian he is gonna be so sorry...

I am a teacher.

I survived
2 rounds of applications where I was rejected
1 round trip to Australia to attend teacher's college
Endless papers and exams
100 days of practical experience teaching other people's classes.

All that is left is a 7000 word paper that I must get my ass on.
More to come when that is behind me, and hopefully some other good news.
