Tea

I want to share this with you guys… don’t judge me.

I like tea. Coffee is okay, too, but I honestly prefer my tea. I don’t really have a favorite blend of tea (yet), but I figure I’ll try things until I find one that makes me go, “YES THIS!”

There’s a web site that I get my tea from. It allows people to make blends based on various fandoms. For instance, there is a line of teas that are named after Harry Potter potions. My favorite is Veritaserum. If your tea is named for a character and that character is “shipped” with another character, you can buy both and get a discount. This amuses me greatly.

I recently picked out a few new flavors because I found a line created for the fandom I am currently fixated on. One of the characters is a mix of tiger eye and toasted mate almond. This in and of itself is a good blend. It’s tasty and not overpowering, though I still need two sugars and a dash of milk to make it awesome.

My favorite part? The blend has rainbow sprinkles in it!

Job Searching

In February of this year I was laid off from my job at a call center. I figured okay, fine, it’ll be okay, I can just focus on school. That was an awesome idea, honestly, because I got a break and my grades were awesome. So good decision there. Yay, me.

Now, with school being out of the summer I have attempted to find a job, again. However, I will be attending school full time in the fall, so I have something like two and a half months before I either have to go down to part time or quit altogether. It is frustrating because no professional position wants a worker for that short a time frame! Even a lot of the temp positions I’ve looked at all want a six month commitment which I cannot give. So, for now I am jobless and… not quite regretting my decision. I am regretting that I didn’t start looking for another job until after finals, though. I don’t know how I would have done that, but I wish I had figured it out.

Also, all the jobs that would be temporary like diners or grocery stores have been taken because the high schoolers are out for the summer, too. Dammit!

Ouch!

My husband hit his head at work, today. The hit was hard enough that it knocked him on his ass. We took him to the ER and he has a mild concussion. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem to be too serious. We’re currently watching for the regular dizziness, nausea, and irregular pupils and such.

Remember, kids: always wear a helmet!

I Made That Exam My Bitch

Apparently, I did learn the shit I was supposed to. Huzzah!

Today I had my final exam for my lit class, American Literature After 1865. I had been stressing over my writing portfolio for my other class and completely forgot that I had an actual, y’know, test that I had to take. Thankfully my teacher provided a short study guide. I went through that study guide yesterday evening and wrote up the things it said I needed to know. Today I went into my exam, still stressing a bit, and I feel like I kicked it’s ass. There’s only one question where I was like, “Uh… no?” The rest felt pretty good. I was really worried about the essay portion since the study guide said, “Pick one or two quotes from five authors and bring them to write an essay on a general topic.” I was super annoyed at that because could you be any vaguer?!

Thankfully the essay prompt was, “List the quotes that are most influential to you personally and explain why” and I had a moment of “AWWWW YEAH BITCH!” So there were 3-4 pages on that and the rest was discussing the major literary movements of the period. Realism, Regionalism, Naturalism, Modernism, Postmodernism- too many ‘isms!’

Y’know, I may still be a bit jittery from lack of sleep and nerves and coffee. Yeah.

Paranoid note: I said I feel like I kicked its ass. This means I actually did kick its ass, OR it kicked my ass and was sneaky AF about it. We’ll find out in a few days.
