How was your week? Mine was great.
Last Sunday I got a pet fish. He is a betta. His tank is small.
Then on Monday night I went to the Mother Mother concert here. Long time readers of this blog will know that I am a big fan. It was probably the 6th or 7th time I've seen them live, they come here a lot. and they always put on an AMAZING show. I went with friends who had never seen them live before so that was exciting. On the car ride there I asked my two friends which songs they hoped they'd play. I said Wrecking Ball. My one friend said Hayloft and the other one said Ghosting. They played all three, of course. It was awesome. My favourite thing about Mother Mother is that they are such a tight band. Hearing them live is just like hearing them on their record, except for the energy is even better because it's a live show. But every guitar lick, every harmony, every lyric is just THERE. They just appreciate music and the make the audience love it too.
Also, I bought this shirt.
Last week I went to some other concerts (ones that my boyfriend was in at the university) and just worked on a lot of homework.
I also finished up my three week block at a school. I won't say what school I was working at or who I was with or anything, I will just say it could not have been a better experience. The teacher I was working with, the classmate I was partnered with, the school, the community, and the students were all AWESOME. We got to teach whatever we wanted basically, just to experiment, we built relationships with the students and staff, and each other (the girl I was working with and I were only sort-of friends/aquaintances before and now we're really close so that's awesome.)
I made a video montage for her, but I'm not going to share it because there are students in it, and other staff members, and it says the name of the school and stuff, so....I'll just say it was great. On the last day, we made a little presentation at the staff meeting to thank the school and we gave them a card, and then they gave us STAFF mugs! It was awesome. We gave a card and present to our co-op teacher and she gave us each a little digital timer (which is a must-have in an English classroom, to time silent reading, work periods, whatever. Just so useful. and now I have my own.) Then we went for lunch with some staff members and the teacher we were working with bought us lunch. Then I had to go to some conference thingy but I got to hand in all my homework to my prof, so that felt great. Then I went to the campus bar with some friends.
And then it's just been a big celebration time since then pretty much. Hung out with friends on Friday, went out on Saturday. And since then I've just been hanging out with people I haven't seen in a while, catching up on sleep, watching movies, lazing about, etc.
Also, on Thursday these shirts came in the mail.
So...uhh...that's pretty much it. Everything I would have been blogging about last week if I had a normal blog where I just blog about my life and stuff. I have some cool things in the works for this blog and a surprising post coming probably on Thursday, so look for those.
And have a great week! I'm gonna go eat lunch with my awesome sister who just called me. Sweet! Bye.
