I've said it many times and I'll say it again -- my friends RAWK. (In the words of [ profile] mutantenemy, who is definitely one of those to whom the following refers, and 'cause I couldn't possibly have said it better!)

If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the Internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

So, I know I haven't been here much, but I feel as though I'm starting to get back to it. I have been doing some housecleaning around here, too. I cut a bunch of old communities, and I also trimmed the f-list of a handful of journals that haven't been updated in about a year and a half. I think most of them now have journals under different names, and a few have just gone on to other things... (If you were cut and you want to be added back, just let me know!)

There is a post about my mom coming soon, and there will be many more to follow it, I am sure. (I'll probably lj-cut them, since they likely won't be happy ones...) Suffice to say, it's just insanely awful and heartbreaking, but I'm dealing. The hardest part (well, sometimes, there's a lot of hardest parts, really. They sort of take turns.) is knowing it should not have happened this way. There has been so much negligence with her care; it's really infuriating. I'm documenting everything now...

My class is going well so far, and I'm really enjoying it. I may lose one of the ones for fall, but if so, I can always offer it up next time, so it's cool. I may put some feelers out for other schools, too. I'm just really happy to be teaching, at last.

Otherwise, things have been surprisingly....well, calm seems the wrong word given the circumstances, but I'll be darned if I can think of a better one....

OK, I succumbed. Despite the fact that I thin this whole 'userhead' business is eye-rollingly dumb (not to mention sounding vaguely scandalous...) I succumbed. But, look---> [ profile] raven_moon she's a little witch, and she has red-hair, and she's so cute, and it's Halloween, and... Yup, I'm a dork! LOL

Things I need to remember:
• Asking for help is not, as it turns out, fatal.
• Laughing is easier than pulling your hair out, and doesn't have the unfortunate side effect of making you look like a plague victim.
• Even the biggest tasks can be defeated if taken a bit at a time.
• I can write a paper the night before it's due, but the results are not all they could be.
• Be thorough, but focused.
• Trust yourself.
• Honesty, always.
