Depends on the day!

Work days go like this: Alarm goes off, Jacqueline gets up to make the coffee while I grumble and try to go back to sleep. A few minutes later she comes to wake me up and prods me into the shower. (She takes such good care of me!) I blearily shower in the dark (Bright lights, bright lights! >.<), then get dressed, asking Jacqueline a million times if she thinks it looks ok. While I do this, she makes my lunch & coffee, gives me pills, and make sure my bag is packed up. (Did I mention she takes very good care of me?) Then I put on my coat, and Jacqueline follows me out to the car with my bag and coffee. (VERY good care of me...) Then I give her a good-bye kiss and pedal off to work to the soothing sounds of NPR (or Ted & Amy in the Morning if NPR isn't interesting). Non-work days are much more pleasant. The alarm is set for Jacqueline, who *likes* to wake up early, and I stay snuggled in bed til I feel like I've had enough sleep. When I wake up, Jacqueline usually hears me stumbling about and comes to say good morning to me. We talk for a bit, and then things are much more random. Sometimes I shower and we head out to run errands, other times I just stay in my PJs and play around on the computer or make art...

Day 21 – Your job and/or schooling

Both! My job is at school! And my schooling is going to get me a job! ^-^ I am currently working on a research project for my Masters in Science Education (Grades 5-12), which, along with my Bachelors in Elementary Education (Grade 1-6), should make me much more employable! And when I go to work, I go to one of several local schools as a substitute teacher, where I fill in for all kinds of teachers, from Kindergarten to 12th grade, even the 'Specials' like art and music.

Day 22 – Something that upsets you

Lots of things upset me, but I'm trying learn to not get upset, if you understand what I mean. Some of the things that upset me are...
  • Slow drivers
  • Drivers who cut me off
  • Feeling ineffective at work
  • People abusing their pets
  • People being disrespectful to children
  • People taking advantage of me, my friends, and family
  • Being unable to communicate effectively
  • The way things are going with my parents
But like I said, I am trying to see things in other ways, not reacting to things that upset me the way I normally do, with yelling and/or tears, but with deep breaths and rewording my inner monologue...

Day 23 – Something that makes you feel better

HUGS! Comfort foods, deep breathing, talking to Jacqueline, upbeat music, swimming, hot baths, sleeping, back rubs, rewording my inner monologue, cuddling my kitteh, drawing, painting, writing, driving, taking a walk...

Day 24 – Something that makes you cry

Getting upset, sad movies, happy endings, hurting myself...

Day 25 – Your sleeping habits

Weird question. I like to have a chocolate and read before bed, and I like to have my covers just so, with my foot sticking out from under, unless it's super cold, and I *don't* like to get up in the morning... :P

Day 26 – Your fears

I always used to be afraid of being alone, but I am not so afraid of that anymore... I get a lot of anxiety from the phone and being around people (yes, even my friends & family), swimming in deep water, driving at night, especially in the rain, and anything that has to do with money and finances... (My belly is knotting up just thinking of all these things...:\ I'm going to get a hug... ^-^)

Day 27 – Your favorite place
Day 28 – Something that you miss
Day 29 – Your favorite foods/drinks
Day 30 – Your aspirations
