Just got back from the East coast, half the staff at my warehouse job quit while I was away. Which is, uh, something. I'm going to try and drop down to 3 days a week there while I start my new job: Assistant Preschool Teacher

Well, "job" might be a bit generous. I'm interning at a cool constructivist outdoor pre-K near where I live, and if I make it through the summer, I can start working there in a full time paid position in the fall. In any case, it's only 10 hours a week right now, and I'm happy to do it for free for the time being. I'm helping with storytelling and teaching songs and crafts and all that jazz. I'd like to work as a music teacher sometime soon, and I feel like this is a pretty good transitional step.


My partner and I just moved in to our own (rented) house, and it's fucking great. Still in a state of disarray at the moment, but I'll upload some pictures tonight.

EDIT: Some pics.

Behold! a pretty disorienting panorama of our bedroom. Most of the art is made by either us or our friends, which is nice.

A chair I found on the side of the road. I wanted to take a bit of our last house with us, so I painted this the color of our old kitchen, and reupholstered it with the kitchen curtains I had made.

A little gardening my partner did while I was out East.

I love that you made a chair with your old paint and curtains for the memories!
