I live in the shadows where it’s been so hard to grow; I’m still a servant in a nobleman’s robes

So I survived my first week back in the classroom. One of my teachers actually seems like a fairly intelligent person so far, and a decent teacher, which is unprecedented at this school. The other teacher… ugh. I don’t know if I have the energy to describe her.

Everything has been mixed up for me for a while now because this place is poorly run, and at the moment I am still missing one textbook that I kinda crucially need, but in general things are going OK. Speaking of textbooks… did I mention I have one that weighs eight and a half pounds? That’s heavier than my cat.

During the more repetitive moments of lectures (no shortage of these), I have been able to get some Confrérie written — Wufei’s first appearance in the story, in fact (much earlier than his first appearance in Plastic!) With as homework-intensive as these classes are shaping up to be, it’s looking less hopeful that I’ll be ready to start posting Confrérie on my birthday, but this is part 10 I’m working on right now; if I go with a weekly posting schedule, even if I’d never progressed beyond part 10, that would give me a ten-week buffer… We’ll see.

And then there’s that other writing project (she says as if there aren’t about 1,000,000 things in her life that the phrase “that other writing project” could describe). I’d like to have that done by my birthday too, but that also seems unlikely. Once again, we’ll see!

  1. I know most people think of deer as pests, but I think they’re lovely.

    Good luck with classes! Did you mention what they were in a previous post? I can’t remember. (My ability to recall keeps getting worse every year.)

    1. Deer are as common as dirt in my neighborhood, and my mom (as you mentioned!) can’t stand them because they eat her gardens. But they’re just so freaking cute!!! And babies?? Wot!

      I’ve started on the final stretch of my veterinary technician schooling; my current classes are Food and Fiber Animal Husbandry and Radiology. Radiology is such a review for me by now it’s not even funny XD
