Gift wrapping is suuuuuuuuper-duper fun to me, it's very satisfying, and I'm pretty dope at it. Knitting and crocheting though, I'm terrible at!

Wish I could've used you then! I had to cover a box for food donations..just so it doesn't look like an ugly box. All that matters is that I tried, right?

I can knit okay but I am more jealous of your superhuman skill* than you can possibly imagine.

*gift wrapping is a super human skill

Gift bags are my friend. I buy lots of pretty tissue paper and ribbon.

The plus side to that is they are super duper easy to reuse because they still look like new. So, it's not that I can't wrap stuff nicely--I'm environmentally friendly. And I'm sticking to that story.

We talked about conflict minerals in class today and I found out that one of my students came from Sierra Leone 3 years ago. It was fantastic to get his perspective. I love teaching in a really diverse school.

You guys sound like my sister E! Every year we have a 'gift wrapping party' at her house, which really means me and B (our oldest sister) and our mom all take our gifts to E's house and drink hot cocoa while she wraps them for us. I even made her wrap her own gift one year. I'm an awesome sister.

i used to always go to depressing movies alone. i think it's because i really like to stay sad after i see a sad movie. and when you're hanging out with other people you kind of have to go back to being normal/social. I remember seeing What's Eating Gilbert Grape with my parents and then I refused to talk to anyone for the rest of the day. I think they thought I was going crazy, but I just wanted to be left alone to be depressed.

<3

When I am down (or sick, or hurt, or whatever), I love watching depressing shiitake alone. Please accept this sad confession: on days when I feel bummed and don't have to do anything (the latter, very rarely), I revel in not putting in my contact lenses because it makes the day seem so delicately soft and somehow pleasingly depressing.

Conversely, I finished The Book Thief whilst waiting for my roommate to get a chemo treatment, and I felt really shitty about being so teary and low when everyone else in the room was dealing with much more shiitake than a sad book.

I got a free sachet of Udo's Beyond Greens and put it in my smoothie today. It smelled like Critical Care rodent food. I can't help wondering if it tastes the same.

(i think i've tasted all the food i give my critters. except the dog kibble. at the bird rescue, i taste everything i feed them, especially when it's 11:00 and I haven't eaten since 6:30.... no shame in that, i figure.)

I have the world's worst penmanship. I just looked at my to-do list and couldn't for the life of me comprehend why I had written "boner" on there. Finally figured out that it said "shower".

Sometimes I can't read my own handwriting either. I remember in high school almost all of the girls had neat, cute handwriting and mine looked to be about 3rd grade level. I think it's partly because i'm left-handed. And just out of curiosity, I googled 'do girls have better handwriting' to see if this was a thing or if i'm just making it up in my brain:

My partner and I finally had a really great, in-depth conversation about our future and how we're going to handle some really difficult things coming up. I started my pre-calculus class that I need to get into an awesome program (part of the crazy future things), and it's way more manageable than I expected. Yay!

I used to have the best handwriting in my family, which still isn't saying much. It keeps getting worse and worse. Probably because I also write quickly, and small. But I think it's a myth that lefties have worse handwriting because all of the lefties I know write neater than I do (and do have nice handwriting too) ;)

In my experience reading indecipherable high school scrawl, girls do, in general, have better handwriting. There are a couple this year that I can't read to save my life, and I'm pretty good at reading almost anything. I also have a boy who writes in this fancy stylized script that I can't decipher either.

I think the difference is that lots of girls enjoy using pretty colored pens and having their work look neat, so that gives the overall appearance of better handwriting. I haven't ever really had many boys who care what color ink their pen writes with.

Did you get grades for hand writing in school? We did in primary school. It was always my only bad grade. I had a 4 (that's... a D, I guess) (its 1-6, 1 is the best and 5 is failed) and no one in the class had that bad of a grade.

Oh, the "pretty pen" girls. Dude, I love stationary and proper awesome pens, but there were always about 5 girls in my class who had to underline every thing with a ruler. It's a chemistry class and you're never going to look at this again!
Then again, when I was studying for something at university I kinda wished Id been one of these girls. I couldn't decipher anything. My handwriting nowadays changes with my mood. I write in my diary so I hate when I write messy but sometimes I'm just too tired to care.

I was am a "pretty pen" girl. I have a Harley Davidson Waterman fountain pen that I put South Sea Turquoise and purple ink in. I used to always be buying new packs of pretty pens, (I had a problem--$6 every forking time I went to Target or the college bookstore etc) but I've loved this combo for years now. I love fountain pens. One day I want a super nice one (mine have the stainless steel Waterman nib, but just have the cheap plastic barrel).

I hate being "that teacher" but had to forbid a student from using orange ink because it was too pale for me to read easily enough to not be super annoying. Last year, I brought in my huge stash of glitter gel pens to give out since I don't use them anymore.

Molly currently thinks that I am the meanest bird mom ever because I will not share my Panera sandwich with her. She is running up and down clicking at me and giving "the look." it's not my fault avocado is poisonous! I broke off a little piece of safe bread for her, but she wants to sit on my plate and eat off the actual sandwich.
