FUCK TEH WHUT? I have ingested a little too much sugar today in an effort to keep up with kiddies. It's looking like I will have a capable team of minions if we keep at it that will let me realize my dream of having a baking monopoly over the north. No. I'm kidding. They were loopy today, but they were allright. I also got kudos from the boss and I have to admit that It's a different thing than when I used to work in the other town. I literally went for a year without getting anything good from my boss. The atmosphere was usually one of doom and despair and there it's so different that I'm kinda like "Whoah! Shit! Really!"

Yeah, so I gotta eat, then pack because I gotta be at the airport to go to Kuujjuaq. I'm pretty stoked about this, because it's like "It's finally here! I'm going to be really involved in something cool that I like and the school I like and it's all really cool!" I'm just a bit excited and trying to cram everything into one thing, kind of thing. I know I gotta chill, but yeah. I'm stoked.

Other than that. I created a DW under ve1ocitygir1 as a backup because LJ and the crossposting shit is just silly. There are reasons why people decide to keep the two separate. Christ.

I also got one of my shirts. The Penguin 3-in-1. Just a matter of time for the other stuff, I guess.

Yeah...hungry now. Will eat and then crash and set my alarm.

I am beat in a good way! Even though I relied on sugar and caffeine (my best friends now. God, if I didn't have cups of King Cole tea during the day, I would pass out) I was all nice and perky and it went smoothly with the kids. I guess that since I am used to all holy hell breaking loose, that a few glitches (like hiding in closets, hot glue in locks and being threatened by people shorter than me is meh to me) are okay by me.

I'm cross-eyed because I need to get back into the swing of things. I am okay with the situation and myself and the people around here. I don't know how things are going to work, but I refure to get out there and worry about them. I don't know what the future will hold, but it will just have to take care of itself. That's about it, kind of thing.

Still no word on my bag. I will call. I also need to get more paperwork done. Monday will come soon enough so that i can take care of it there. It will be done. I just have to have faith and be patient.

I think I will crash soon. It's been a long week and I need to mellow out, meditate and just zen out.

It feels like it's crunch time now, since Monday is my first day with my students. I ran into them when I was out on the coast today and one of them knows a couple of kids from the town I was at. I told her at first that I knew them...but then I backtracked when she said she would ask about me and I told her that they didn't know me, because they were in Montreal at the time (which is sort of true, really.) that I was there. I don't care to bring my past into the present, but fuck does it seem determined to come back and piss me off. I was sort of upset at first when this encounter happened, because I really don't want people looking me up. I am not who I used to be. That was me almost two years ago and I have changed. I know it.  And I don't want anyone to judge me on the basis of those years. I thought about it and was like fuck it. That's not my business anymore. Living my life well now is my business.

I'm also sort of lonely. I miss the two J's pretty badly at the moment. I was listening to HS J (We've been friends since I was 17 and he was 16. I haven't seen him since 2008) song and I just got this raw wave of almost physical loneliness. I am resisting emailing the 2nd J because I know I just am going to do it because I'm sort of lonely at the moment and Friday's events kind of got me off kilter and despite being a douche sometimes, he was there when I did need him. He had this almost uncanny ability to email me when I was feeling low. But we're no good for each other. So no.

And another friend (whom I will see in Kuujjuaq in a couple of weeks) has been pining after this one other teacher she met at the orientation.And there's another chick and another teaching hooking up and I'm sort of torn between thinking it's nice and wondering again if I will be like my namesake Hel and remain cold and alone.

I am also kind of fucking annoyed at the genetic legacy at the moment. 

My hair has turned red. Yes. RED. How the fuck did it happen, I honestly don't know. The same red I used to dye it when I was younger. Funny. I got surrounded by kids today and they kept stroking my hair. I really felt weird. And I keep getting asked if I am an "Indian". It's starting to really irritate me, to tell the truth. And they don't mean it in a bad way, really. It's just that the two groups really don't interact much. Except for two towns further south, there's almost no interaction. Maybe in Kuujjuaq, but it's rare. So I'm a novelty in that I'm new and not white. And have red hair.

Blah. That's my whining done for the week. I'm as prepared as I can be for the moment in regards to my classes. I am hoping that it goes not as crazy as it used to back in the day. I have hope it's going to work out.

I've been having dreams again that start Ovechkin and Crosby and Tootoo, (I am sure that the latter is because I'm living in the Tundra. I'm actually across the sea from Nunavut) and I am sure that they will multiply once October gets here.

Yeah. I feel a bit better now.  I really have to go to bed now. I want to be there a bit earlier to get things ready and myself ready.

Here's hoping I get some good dreams.

Have also discovered Hetalia Axis Powers and it looks sort of WTF and amusing at the same time.

Today was a different day altogether in that it was sunny! I hadn't seen the sun for almost a week and I did miss it. I went to do some work and then went and sat on the coastline and just enjoyed the weather. It was beautiful and I took pictures and updated my blog. It was a lovely counterpoint to last night's mild douchebaggery, which follows in the cut below:

This is NOT my parade )
Other than that, I managed to get my cleaning done and put clothes away that arrived this last Wednesday. Still waiting on my bag, but I think it will show up in time. It's not a serious, holy shit emergency, but I do need to have the other hoodies and t-shirts that I have in that bag sometime soon. Well, it just means that I will re-buy my favourite hockey shirts and hoodies. But i think it will come.

I did have a lovely talk with A about everything under the sun and I told her about the hockey program and I am still excited about the situation. I am such a bloody fangirl that I am all like "WHOAH! I'm going to be working with Joè Juneau!!" and also looking forward to going to Kuujjuaq to get that training and see how I can get stuff sorted out here and there.

I am also enlisting someone to make me an amautiq with the tails and the hood. Here's a link to show what I am talking about: Amauti info.People are joking that I can carry my groceries in it and then my twins afterwards. I am like "Unless I open my closet and find Sheldon Souray or Crosby or Tootoo or Ovechkin, I highly doubt it" But yeah, I hope I can get it made in black with silver, black, red and white piping.

So yeah, that's it for now. Off to read crap and maybe watch some boxed sets of Dr. Who or Moonlight. I'm in a better mood now that I talked about the situation and I won't dwell on it, because it's not my stuff. I know who I am and where I stand. That's all that matters.

I'm tired again today. It was all about movement. Getting stuff to make with the kids, thinking up projects, cleaning up all the stuff that accumulated and wasn't needed and on and on and on. I need to photocopy stuff for Monday and plan everything for the rest of the week. I also need to get stuff done for the week after, since I will be again in Kuujjuaq for the weekend of mid-September. Shit. I can't believe that it will be September soon. I mean, I know that it's bound to happen, but Christ!

This time last year, I was just trying to get back on my feet and on with my life after being smacked down so hard that it took me a couple of months to get my shit together to actually go and do something productive...and now...I'm working and planning things and trying to figure out how to run things well and smoothly. And looking for banana bread recipes. LOL.

I've also been fancying Alex Ovechkin something awful again. It's his eyes and yeah...I am in a small town, so fancying Ovechkin is the only cure for being in the small town area. It doesn't bother me. It's just the way it is.

I am actually going to just goof off a bit longer and then I'll lie down for a nap. I'm exhausted and I really should be sleeping more than I have been lately.

But yeah, I'm happy about today. I have cheesecake! Whoot!
