Aussie Dalek

My life, on (not enough) coffee

So, today I spent my first day of my teaching degree actually at a school. (No specific details will be revealed in public posts - if you want to know more, hit me up on MSN or something.) Not that I did any actual teaching, which would have been scary. Instead me got a tour and did admin and I sat in on a few classes to observe. In an observey way.

I also had to be there at 8:30, which meant catching a bus at 7:45. Ick, early mornings. Though the day finishes up at 3pm, which I suppose evens things out.

But there were people calling me Miss. :/ And like all the senior boys were taller than me, too, which is just not right. Though I did get to discover the wonders of what goes on inside teacher staffrooms.

And then I went into the city after and got my glasses. Which I actually have now. Here, check out the MySpacetastic picture I posted of them on Twitter. Ignore the sideways.

I hadn't realised just how bad my sight was until I put them on. Those blurry things in the distance, no longer blurry any more.

And to get away from my crazy and somewhat hyper from lack of sleep life - George R. R. Martin has apparently announced the release date of the next A Song of Ice and Fire books. I say I'll believe it when I am actually holding the book in my own two hands.

And without comment, I will link you to ...this video. Australian politics, ladies and gentlemen.
