+ My mother is determined to emotionally manipulate me into getting my teachers' certification. I explained to her, calmly, the reasons I do not want to be a classroom teacher (she already knew this when I signed up for the arts administration version of teacher's college over a year ago, so not so much with the shocking!), that certification is an annual thing and requires money I don't have, as someone who is unemployed. And then I gave her a copy of my action research paper, about arts-integrated learning in the classroom and storytelling making the world a better place and she STARTED TO CRY. I don't even know.

+ For the first in five years, I am not moving for September, so I have cleaned and rearranged my room. There is a wall (WALL) of books and also my bed is no longer under a skylight. I hope this means that come winter, I will not get dripped on by said skylight in early morning thaw.

+ Minikilts are unlikely in my future. Good/Bad? Your call.

+ For something completely different: a few icons (Yukon Music Post still coming), made ages ago, of the summer Olympics (Canadian Men's Triathlon Team and Men's 8+ in Rowing). I find it hilarious that the men's triathlon team did a number of photoshoots... and I love that on their racing suits Canada gets abbreviated to "CAN". Jenkins Can! Whitfield Can! It's very optimistic.

So much love for these boys: Paul Tichelaar, Simon Whitfield, Colin Jenkins (epic triathlon is epic).
Kyle Hamilton, Adam Kreek, Kevin Light, Ben Rutledge, Andrew Byrnes, Jake Wetzel, Malcolm Howard, Dominic Seiterle AND Brian Price (men's 8+ and coxie!).

Comments are nice, credit is not necessary.

You should post your essay! I am in need of a good cry :D

And I have to say, the red makes for very pretty icons.

You are so not funny :P Looking back, she might have been crying at the grammatical errors: "How did I raise a daughter with such atrocious grammar?" "I WROTE IT IN AN AIRPORT, MOM, AFTER THREE DAYS OF NOT SLEEPING."

... and then she tried to talk me into opening my own school with other ACE grads. I HAVE NOTHING.

Canada is awesome like that ♥
