you're getting warmer

it's starting to be hot here now. rats. the nice weather of spring lasts for approximately 34.224 seconds here in the south of kz. now the dread summer is creeping in. don't get me wrong, it's not 115 degrees yet, but it's coming. i can smell it. in the mornings it's still kinda cool, but by 1, 2 o'clock, damn. it's like 85, 90 -- that's too hot for me.

ok, now that i've dispensed with my mid-western cultural duty of discussing the weather (c'mon, ohioans, you know it's true!), what else is up? aha. . .

the first of may (or the "day of international friendship" or the "day of intercultural cooperation and understanding" or the "day when i go to the town square to watch my students do a dance and i don't have to go to school") is coming up, and my kids have been practicing like mofos on this dance that they're gonna perform for the town. now, you know me, i love dancing, but this is boardering on silly. my kids have been practicing daily for 2 weeks. this wouldn't be so bad if they didn't have to practice RIGHT UNDERNEATH MY CLASSROOM DURING LESSONS. it's intense. i've heard the music for the dance so much, i swear, i dream about it. but, all will be back to (near) normal soon. after this celebration, i've been promised that there will be no more large-scale choreographical undertakings for the rest of the year.

anyway, that's pretty much me right now. i'm still stuck on summer plans. you see, i wanna travel, and i have time, but - unfortunately - it turns out that i'm a peace corps volunteer. so, i'm limited in the funds department.

(sidebar: i wrote my friend from college the other day. she's going to be working in south america this summer and asked for visitors in her blog. i was like -- damn! south america. i could totally go for some of that right now. so, i write that i'll look into visiting, right? wrong! apparently, they want you to PAY for plane tickets nowadays, which blows. but anyways. . . what are you gonna do -- besides bitch on your blog, of course :) )

so, that's it. i'll write more when it comes to me.
