    TTTNE 476 - the ghost of series past

    I would have either been the one who knows everything or the quiet one. Here is a telling anecdote from my high school: For some reason, I sat in the last row during one class (it was art, but the subject is not important), so not close enough to the teacher to hear if we were talking quietly. The teacher asked something, I knew the answer and said it, but very quietly. The student sitting in front of me heard it and repeated it aloud, gaining praise from the teacher. Then he also explained that he only knew because I told the answer first. I mean, theoretically I do? I can of course say no, I won't take over this class at the language school. But then I won't get paid for it either. But yes, they know I prefer to work with adults.

    There were only three of them. One kept complaining and criticising everything, one was really good and knew almost everything, the third one is a quiet person and the first two didn't really let her have an opportunity to speak. I don't think I am fit to work with that young children.

    Don't really blame them, but ... seven hells, children are exhausting. *phew*

    Heh, I never had the heavy drinking and clubbing and stuff phase. And high heels present a danger to me. It was @TheCrannogDweller. I am going back to teaching today, I have to substitute the teacher for a small group of 6-year-olds ... that is going to be fun. I will actually have to sing childish songs with them.

    You can still go out and not drink. The last semester taught me that people actually really admired how I can dance totally sober. Everybody is soooo "I only dance when I'm drunk" and then I have to wait around for them to drink, while I am ready to dance as soon as good music starts! Happy birthday to the TTTNE king of 2015.

    I suspect that you had the chain I just drew for before me. There be lewdness in this game. But it is, as you say, questionable.

    The Good Place S4 - We Have a Group Text now (spoilers)

    Late to the party. I really liked the show and obviously it is very satisfying that they found the actual Good Place and the solution for those who wanted to end their stay. But the goodbye of Chidi and Eleanor was just so sad. Good thing there was that final Jason appearance to make me smile, otherwise it would have made me cry. Jason spent his last days in a forest meditating, feeling at peace with nature ... like a monk. One thing that I don't think fit was that Michael got to go to Earth and just appear there as an adult man. Would it not have made more sense to let him experience the whole human life, meaning he would be somehow born as a baby and get to experience human childhood, adolescence, adulthood up to old age? If they wanted to make his wish of really experiencing life on Earth come true, why would they only allow him to appear there are a 60-something man? Not to even mention that this severely cuts into his time to collect afterlife points, since that clock only started for him as an older adult, which means he would probably get stricter testing, more time in the Medium/Testing Place after his death etc.

    Well, I mean, I would be the one getting interviewed if I decided to search for such an arrangement, seeing how I am the one who does not have a flat yet. Also, of course it is best if you can chat with people before you move in with them ... but also, just an hour is definitely not enough to actually get to know a person. People can surprise you in both positive and negative ways even after you have known them for a long time.

    So pretty pictures. My grandparents have one of those bird feeders that are like small wooden houses on a pole. They love watching them through the window. The birds that come there are mostly sparrows. Yes, I was also looking into moving into shared flats, although I don't know anybody that would be willing to share with me. I mean, you can just look at ads online and see people who are looking for a roommate, but that has the potential to also turn into a nightmare, moving in with random people. Valonqar has no interest in sharing his living space with me once he moves out. (Also, it is not like my parents would be unwilling to help me out financially if it came to a situation that called for it, but I don't want to rely completely on that. I am doing it too much as it is already.) In any case, I need to wait a few months at least to see what will come of this job situation and to earn some money first.

    I just realised we have a mystery player this time around!

    I am sure it will! I mean, even if I get a better job, I can still keep proofreading for extra money if they need me and I have any time left. I am just complaining for no reason, again. Hang in there! I know this is very annoying. On the other hand, I had a conversation with my parents yesterday about my living situation. Both myself and the valonqar still live with the parents, but we want to move out. Of course, we don't have money for our own flats, and renting doesn't make all that much sense, so I am really lost about what I can do. I don't want to wait until I am like 40 before I move out, but if I just move out to rent anything, I won't be ever able to save up to actually buy a flat ever (if I even ever get a job contract that would convince any bank to give me a loan, which is not very likely by itself). :/

    This was a beautiful picture! Bold my name! I think generally the deadlines are 48 hours for sentences and 72 hours for drawings, so it should be fine. If someone cannot do it, you can always extend it.

    Proofreading job, working from home again. At least I have this, though it is boooooring. But ... it is better than nothing. Still nervous about some stuff I have no influence over. I can just keep waiting.
