Yesterday was Imbolc, or Groundhog's Day, if you prefer. Either way, it is an assurance that Spring will come, that Winter can not last forever. I wish that assurances came so easily in every facet of life. How much easier to get over heartbreak if there was assurance you would find love again, that you wouldn't spend your life alone? How much easier to get over the loss of a job knowing another was just around the corner? How nice to be able to make life changing decisions knowing all will be well?

Life doesn't work like that, though. We are forced to take leaps of faith everyday, not knowing how or if we will land. We can prepare, we can plan, but in the end, we have to close our eyes and jump.

It's scary operating without a net.

Yesterday was an interesting day. I was supposed to sub Spanish in the morning and Home Ec. in the afternoon, but the training for the Spanish teacher got canceled, so I only did one class for her and then moved on over to the Home Ec. classroom. Had time to sit around and just talk to the Home Ec. assistant, who I like more every time we talk. She's an older lady, and has her area plastered with Christian items, but in sitting and talking to her, we had some fascinating conversation about homosexuality, mega churches, witnessing, hypocrisy, and other such things, and I was refreshed to find her views surprisingly progressive for one raised in the Baptist church all her life (we used to attend the same church, although I didn't know her back then, and we have both since left for similar reasons, which was a nice validation that it wasn't just me seeing the things that were going wrong). It was a bonding moment, and very unexpected. Hooray for unexpected allies!

In other news, I got sick as a dog last night. Missed almost all of Heroes (which I am considering giving a second chance, because it looks like they are taking the story lines in interesting directions again) in the bathroom. Blargh. Not fun. Feeling better today, although weak, but very glad I didn't have a sub assignment today.

In other other news, the WADF was out in full force last night. Smog had a weird dream, and I had three of them, though I can only remember the last one, in which I was dressing as some sort of strange Blind Mag/ vampire cross for some evening event, only to discover I had grown a beard. This would never do, I decided, as I stroked my curly chin fur, but I didn't know what to do about it. I didn't want to shave, as I was afraid I would then be sporting a five o' clock shadow, and I didn't have any kind of Nair type product in the house, so I eventually decided I would need to pluck it out. My entire beard. While people were banging on the bathroom door and telling me to hurry up. Somehow, I managed to do so, and quickly slapped on my makeup, contacts, and fangs and hurried out to the bus we are taking to this event amidst the beratings of my friends.

My head is a strange, strange place to be.

Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel series is owning me right now, so if I'm not on as much, you can be sure it is because I have my head buried in a book.

Subbing on Friday, then Smog and I are going to see Coraline on Saturday with [livejournal.com profile] spacezombie before we head up to Muskogee for the OKRF mixer. Nice to have some things planned and the weather in which to enjoy them.

Bring on the Spring!
