Reach for the Sky

I'm sitting in my room after a good meal and great conversation/training. I'm just listening to Social Distortion's "Reach for the Sky" and unwinding after a long hard day of flight, training and thinking.

It's going to be a really good year. I feel even more confident being around the people at this training. Berkeley, for all its worth, seems pretty cool.

This is the tentative name of the class I'll be teaching after school during this next year. I'm so excited. I'm going to try and get a hold of Kazu Kibuishi, since my students like his work and he's local, lives somewhere in Alhambra and his studio's off of Main Street. Plus it seems that Art Center Pasadena is our partner so I'll be taking them there to see how art schools are run and what they offer.
comics comics comics. Man I love my job!

Playing with my Toshiba

Just got a new laptop this past weekend. Loaded almost everything I'll need for the coming year and loving how quick it is. Also have all the goodies like anti-virus, firewalls, Mozilla and a really cool Mac-like dock for my apps.

One Year Ago...

It was one year ago that I was finishing up student teaching. One year later I am completing my first year as a full-fledged teacher. I wound up having 8th graders, who honestly weren't that bad since I had them from the beginning of the year. My wonderful 9th graders were just that, wonderful, trying and full of creative energy.

Dammit I hate waiting...

This Just in from the Black Library website:

19/06/2007 : Planetkill Update

The destruction of worlds has been postponed... for now.

Such was the staggering amount of entries we received for the Planetkill short story competition that our diligent editors require a little more time to get through them all!

All finalists will now be informed by the end of June, so keep your fingers and toes crossed and don't panic. Planet wide destruction is imminent...

Comic Con...

Yeah, I'm finally going. After who knows how many years I've been waiting for this, but yeah, I'm going to the Big Con on the West Coast. Just finished printing my registration pass. I'm so stoked!
