Today I used the last of my Barnes & Noble gift card to buy this biography of Nikola Tesla because I'm on a bit of a Tesla/science/obscure historical figures kick. It's shipping to my new apartment and I hope it makes it here all right. (I'm still not sure how the post works around here, much less the delivery of pretty, shiny book-like things.) I also found this set of steampunk rockstar scientist posters and must, must find a way to make them mine at some point.

I'm a little worried about finances for this month and the next. 'Called both Todd and my parents tonight to work some things out and to ask for advice. I am very lucky to have such a great support system. I know everything will work out in the end, but it's easy to get caught up in money woes, especially when you're striking out on your very, very own for the first time. It's looking more and more likely that I will be able to attend neither the TESOL conference in New Orleans, nor ComiCon come July. Both for money/time reasons; INTERLINK is on a nine week rolling schedule. One term lasts nine weeks and then we get a week break, only to start up again for another nine weeks. This schedule cycles throughout the year. It's great, because I don't have to worry about finding another job in the summertime, but it's also kind of a downer because I am so limited in the amount of vacation time/number of vacation possibilities I can explore in my downtime. On the upside, INTERLINK wants me to explore the possibility of getting a second Master's degree, this time in TESOL, which might mean spending the summer in Vermont in an accelerated program. We'll see what happens. Right now I'm just trying to keep up with the daily routine.

I feel like I might take the rest of the night off entirely. 'Turn off my computer, watch a movie, or read. Maybe all three.

There's a new post up at The Portable Teacher. I talk about music and how I reacted when one of my students used the word "penis" in class.
