Something to consider... I hope you figure it all out.

Thank you (I'll read it completely once I'm off work but skimming it, I find a lot of "omg that'sme!" Moments)

Yeah..what I thought a long term relationship should feel like, and what it actually is, was totally different. I blame Disney movies . But seriously, of course there is a difference between settling into the relationship and being totally unhappy, but you need to answer that for yourself.

I had a serious hangover. Now I have the serious munchies...

I'm never going to grow up am I?

I really want to get a Harry Potter tattoo, but am way too much of a perfectionist to ever be completely happy with a tattoo.

After-run happy is very strange. Considering I have inflicted the running upon myself, it's not like I was about to be eaten by a bear and ran/got away. THAT would be a reason to be happy. Ho-hum. I don't think Wesley shares in my after-run happy.

This job is so stressful at times, yet so rewarding when each child makes progress, whether they are learning to blow bubbles or learning to do a front crawl. I can't count the amount of times that I have actually done a happy dance on the deck because one of the kids finally got a certain stroke/drill. I still remember my first few instructors so it's really neat to think that when my students are the ones teaching lessons, they'll be able to look back and remember me.

This session, we have a young boy with autism, who is non-verbal, and he absolutely loves the water... and as his mother warned us, is completely and totally fearless, plus he is a runner. This was confirmed when he got out and started running towards the deep end, cue myself sprinting full speed after him, and jumped in. Luckily, I got there right not even a second after and got him out... but I was still catching my breath for a good five minutes afterwards.

For his safety, can he wear a life jacket at all times?

I might suggest that, although we now have one lifeguard on each side of the pool to catch him if he gets out and runs. He can swim well where he can touch but since he can be so unpredictable, we make sure he has two noodles before heading to the deep end.

On a brighter note though, today I figured out something that he really enjoys... being bounced up and down in the water. The half hour went a little better once he realized that doing a float results in him being able to play the "up" game. We tried doing the whole, "touch your nose" to get his attention as we do for all of the younger levels but his babysitter said that those things have stopped regaining his attention. We let him adjust to both myself and the other instructor today so tomorrow we'll be trying to really get him doing things in the water.

I might have found a doctor I like. I'm going to make an appointment.... I'm so nervous. What if he sucks? Or blows off my concerns? And I didn't really want a make doctor. If I'm going to be naked and uncomfortable with a doctor, it'd be nice if they had felt the same way.... also scared of what I might hear. I just want someone to be nice and listen to me. I'm not stupid but I'm not a doctor. You went to school for years for a reason.


Anyway hopefully things go well. Scared, though :\
