This school year seemed to drag on, and I've only realized just tonight that I only have 9 work days left! I've got a line on a potential baby-sitting job (I've gone out to meet the kids & everything), so hopefully that pans out well over the summer. (I mean, I really, really hope it does, because I need money! It's a good thing I did pick up the extra pay for Outdoor Ed this year, because I haven't had much overtime offered to me -- which is BS because damn the other 2 classes really needed more support.)
And then a week after that, I'm flying up to Sacramento for a week for my sister's birthday! I'm really looking forward to that! She's taking several days off work, so this will be the most time I've been able to spend with her for years. We might go to Lake Tahoe for a couple nights.
In case you don't follow me on Tumblr, let me take a sec to tell you about my shiny new fandom obsession, Wolfblood. It's this unassuming half-hour British kids' show, and it's amazing. It had me from the very first scene, which subverts a common horror-film trope in a cool way. Lycanthropy is used as a device to tell a coming-of-age story that doesn't dumb down any complex issues. It's at times drama, comedy, horror, fantasy, and even a bit sci-fi in S3. Almost all of the characters are brilliantly well-rounded and realistic (most of the exceptions are the villain-of-the-week types, which can get a bit charicature-y), even the ones who don't appear so at first. My favorite thing about it is (you know me) the wide variety of female characters it has -- it's just so exciting to see a show that's telling girls that leadership doesn't have to look like x, that friendship doesn't have to look like y, that intelligence doesn't have to look like z, etc. S1-3 are available streaming on Netflix, and S4 is being written now! I bought the DVDs, you guys. I can't even remember the last time I bought a DVD for anything else. (Like, I think the most recent DVD I have otherwise is Pacific Rim, and that was a present given to me.) For some reason, they were cheaper than purchasing downloads. O___o
