I like pretty things

what do i want to be when I grow up

You think by now, I would know what I want to be when I grow up.
In quiet moments, I think I would like to be a creator of books and films.

Film making seems so far away, the only way I would get to it is maybe writing an awesome script.

I'm in the middle of finishing a book, as a first finished book, I do have doubts about it's quality. But the only way you get better is to work through it.

I really don't want to go back to a corpororate job. But sometimes, looking at the finances, it seems like the only option. Our health insurance will prob go up next year. And I am struggling to make do with an artist salary.

But how I love the freedom. How I love waking up without a rush, cuddling my baby and then relaxing at home. To make plans with friends without consideration of an 8-5. I'm in year 7 of my freedom from an 8-5. How long can I make it last financially?

substitute teaching

Did my first substitute teaching gig today. I was a bit worried since it was high school and had visions of paper planes being thrown at me.

When I got there, I was surprised at how "old" high schoolers look. They're almost full grown adults!

The ratio was really low, 8 students per class. The first section I covered was pretty easy, and the class was very well behaved. The second section was more rowdy and gave me a run for my money.

But all in all, it was reasonably enjoyable. I also remembered algebra, to my surprise, so I could actually help some of the kids.
