Back to school

Today is the first day of school in Kansas City, but I am in Guadalajara, halfway through a four-week course to teach English in foreign countries. Right now I'm crying because (and I'd never thought I'd say this) I'd rather be in Missouri than in Mexico.

I don't wanna worry about nothing for awhile

Into my second week of funemployment and I'm bored as fuck. Send help.

Listening to Lou Reed as though his drug-addled conciousness will help me make life decisions

The best plan I can come up with presently is moving to Mexico City and teaching English and maybe getting into a little bit of the good kind of trouble.

In all seriousness? my friend asks me.

In some seriousness I reply.

Dazed and confused

Last week I had a meeting with my principal where I made an ultimatum: stay with my students in the 4th grade, or leave.

Well, I'm leaving now.

I had really not banked on this. I had invested a lot of hope and excitement into staying in Kansas City for just another year to be with these kids, but now it isn't happening. I also did not make any plans for moving or switching jobs. So my life is basically a mess right now and I am freaking out so I'll probably just move to Mexico and sit on a beach and sell handmade bracelets until I stop having a panic attack.

I'm also going to miss those cuties, because they are SO DAMN CUTE. Ugh. I'm crying already.

I hate libertarianism

So this is a bit out of left field considering I normally use this blog to post videos about The X Files and complain about my job and tell stories about the weird things students say to me. But I just want everyone to know this.

Libertarians are terrible people. They only give a shit about amassing and protecting their own wealth. They put the right to property of a few over the right of many to live decently. They complain about the government trampling on their right to have more money when there are children living through painful, unnecessary, grinding poverty who will never have any property to protect. To a libertarian, your only value is the things you own. If you own nothing, you are worth nothing. Libertarianism prioritizes a political theory written by a privileged, propertied white man from hundreds of years ago over the very real need and suffering of millions of people. So fuck you if you claim to be a libertarian.

That's all.

You guys

I'm really obsessed with The X Files right now. Also, David Duchonvy, obviously. Like, what was I doing with my life in 1994? (Wasting my time, clearly.*)

*Also I was 4 years old.

We're gonna make it to the beach on time

How do people live in places besides California? I can't even comprehend.
