So this weekend was a good get-away after last week's issues. Friday I subbed for 5th Grade Math and science, which went pretty well, minus a few disrespectful incidents. I sat there throughout the day remembering when I was in fifth grade, it was the last year I lived in Warren, I sat thinking that things weren't this ridiculous back then, thinking that this is the edge between ignorance to the rest of the world and being forced to see it for what it is, then sharply contrasting that with 10 and 11 year old kids who couldn't stop getting out of their seats to gossip. It was a strange experience, but I survived and managed to read 60 or so pages of the book I was reading during the day, I haven't been able to have too much free reading time during the semester, not so much because I'm overwehlmed with work, but just being generally distracted.
Friday afternoon mi madre and I enjoyed some good old nostalgia with TMNT. Nothing too special, but it was a good trip back to the early 90's. Then it was off to Greg's where Lisa, Regina, Kelsea, Sara and Stef met to head off to Coldstone, picked up Cory on the way and "endured" Lisa and company singing to loudly to crazy pop music and of course Celine Dion. Then we went back to my house and did the usual: Apples to Apples and bizarre photos. It was an enjoyable reunion, most people won't be around until late May.
Saturday seems a bit blank now, kind of just a typical weekend day, caught a really good German film and then hung out at home.
Sunday I met with my cousin Matt in Cambridge with intent to go to a preview screening of Hot Fuzz at the Brattle, but they gave out way too many passes, although during the line we did witness an interesting demonstration from BLOWW, the Boston League of Women Wrestlers. So instead of the movie we walked over to the Garage, poked around at Newbury Comics and then got something to eat, then we just walked around the square and the Harvard campus and talked, we hadn't hung out in awhile so it was good to catch up, and that's the one thing you can appreciate about Harvard, the architecture of the buildings is stunning. Then it was back to Worcester which I was kind of dreading.
I've been trying to turn so many things around, but when obstacles fly in my face, or obnoxious people it just makes it so difficult, so yesterday was tough but it ended okay having fun with Sune, Kai and Paul, but I'm not in the best place right now, on top of having to figure out so many different things.
Currently i'm watching Why We Fight to write a paper on it, it has its compelling moments, but it's also all over the place, and started fairly objective but it's quickly becoming more and more opinion based than fact, I can't abide documentaries that pass opinion off as fact, or ones that meander aimlessly around a point haha.
