For the first time in a long time I'm vaguely relaxed. I have everything for my college classes done that can be done. It's weird. Sadly, my financial aid came through and I'm only getting $330. I can't freaking believe that's all I got.

I'm getting annoyed by one of my classmates that has children. One woman faults me for not having any. She said my semester is so much easier than hers because she has a son. OK... I understand that you have a child, but I work and student teach. You don't. Our lives are different, so we can't really compare them. Yet she still says she has a way harder life. Last week she said she got her son a bunch of videogames and he's done nothing but eat, sleep, and play them.

The halloween party and parade at preschool was adorable. The children were all dressed up and had fun. I wish I'd took my camera.

VID RECS:
dragonchic's Orchard of Mines (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children) - The song and the spot on editing and pacing make the whole thing feel epic and amazing.

Brad's Goodnight Moon (Heroes) - Extremely creepy with deep and dark family issues. Amazing work from an ever evolving and growing vidder. There are many memorable moments in the vid that made me squee like a girl.

[livejournal.com profile] danegen's Ruiner (Angel) - This vid blew me away and made me wonder how I could have been so blind to the echoing from Connor to Spike with Angel and from Spike to Connor with Angel. It has sickly perfect pacing and flowing editing.

[livejournal.com profile] jarrow272's About Schroeder (Farscape) - Lyrical editing and motion that melds with the music to make a lovely display of Chiana's love.

Kitty's Sick (Resident Evil Trilogy) - So kick ass.

Nicky's What I've Done (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children) - Even her supposed "mindless action" is pretty.

[livejournal.com profile] rhoboat's History Repeating (Doctor Who) - Fab intro of Nine and Ten, then their companions, witty parallelling and smart use of lyrics.

[livejournal.com profile] talitha78's Cobrastyle (Smallville) - OMGYES, Lex being awesome and hot. Great introduction of Lex, song choice, use of motion and quirky movements.

Seems like the video games are taking care of the kid, not the mom - Oops, was that in my outside voice?

I hate when parents moan about how hard it is to have kids. They chose to have them and keep them and raise them - It's not your choice and it doesn't need to be your choice for life to be hard.

Grr.

HEheh, yep. The one that bugs me about it the most has a husband and she talks about how she makes him do all the stuff around the house.

Last week something came up before class, so I called the Prof., like we're supposed to and left him a message to say I would be late. The night the the woman didn't show up at all, but the next week when she told the Prof. her son was sick, he didn't care. Yet he said anyone not coming and not calling, would get their grade lowered... Whatever, I'm just bitchy about it.

The way I see it, if you exercise your free will and chose to have children, you can't then turn around and whine and moan at childless people about how you work harder than them. You freaking dug your own grave, bitch. Deal with it.

Thanks for the rec!

I love children (see career), but I hate it when people think I'm weird for not having children (hello, see age of 21).

Thank you for the rec!

I feel you on the financial aid. Back when we asked Duke's financial aid office for help with the annual $45,000+ bill, they sent us a brochure on how to take a loan.

You're welcome.

I can't bring myself to take out a loan. I have a deep seeded fear of owing large sums of money.

And ignore whiny mommy. Considering the 5,000 screaming children who were at the grocery store tonight when I went for PMS chocolate therapy, she's not doing the world any favors.
