Nonchalantly

Oh, I guess I am back to the tradition of using one-word titles in my entries. Well, let's see.

Nothing eventful for me nowadays. I have finally installed some fixtures in my new flat, thus, I was able to hang clothes again, and not having them folded up in my suitcases. I hate feeling like I am a tramp. So when my neccessities came, I immediately installed them. So yesterday, I spent the day ironing all day long. I ironed my clothes so that they would not have corners in them, and then I hanged them. Finally.

With regard to the jigsaw puzzle, I have finished about seven rows already from the bottom. Since it has 50 pieces per row, that means I have been able to connect about 350 pieces already. I'll take a picture when I have the time.

Classes will start soon: I already ordered my textbooks online, via Amazon, giving my pocket a small dent again. We have a bookstore here inside the campus, but with Amazon, I get my books with a small discount, sometimes the books are priced a few dollars less than the regular price, unlike our bookstore. So sorry UB, but I am just a poor graduate student. I cannot patronize your shop.

With classes only a week and a half to go, I have been preparing for the class I am teaching big time. Handouts here and there, the grading system breakdown has been done, and I have to meet with my undergraduate teaching assistant.

Plus, I need to attend to a couple of orientations regarding the technology inside the room that I will be using. I am assigned to teach in a tech room, where there are plenty of gadgets and hi-tech equipment for teaching. I need to be able to know how to use that so I need to attend that orientation.

I also am scheduled to have a dental appointment next week, and a haircut too.

Plus there is the yearly departmental welcome party, where everyone attends and gets to know the new faces in the department.

Oh I can feel the pressure coming along.

I'm alive!

    wow, i cant do a full-time ironing. iknow i will have to do it someday, but at this point, i only press my clothes before using them, which wastes a lot of time and electricity.

  2. I love puzzles except for jigsaw puzzle. I don't have the patience to arrange those pieces. Dunno why.
