displacement is x, y, z as far as I'm concerned
So, so much for making any effort to upload things or keep in touch, gee Mel. I realised there was news that I should have shared with people through a journal a few weeks ago, so let's amp it up a little first. I've been a 'teacher' for a year, registered, but with very little work.  I've had nothing permanent all year.  I've had a couple of contracts, all of which were very difficult.  I had quite a few interviews that stopped me from thinking I should just get a non-teaching job, but ultimately they all produced nothing.  Constant hope rising and disappointment has left me very shaken. For the last term I've been working at a school on
Uh...hiatus?
Um...for anyone who's interested...despite the fact that I haven't written a thing in so long... I think I'm officially on hiatus until I get my graphics tablet.  It's coming to me as a birthday gift, hence the wait. That is all.
So four years is a long time...
Four years was a long time.  I feel that I only just scraped through in the end, and watching people walk up and receive levels of honours made me feel like a bit of a pleb...but ultimately I felt excited, and relieved of course. I suppose it's a bit of an anti-climax after spending 3 weeks actually teaching...and with the strain of still not knowing what I'll be doing next year. But really, I feel achievement.  My family gave me lovely gifts and showered me with congratulations.  Let's hope I can hack it from here on out. Graduation has stopped being the light at the end of the tunnel and has become the light I see when I look behind me.

A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
