I work several jobs: My full time job I'm a 6th grade assistant teacher at a school for children with learning disabilities. I love what I do but I hate my administration and the drama and am currently looking for another job. I talk a lot about my work drama, my crazy kids, and crazy boss as well as my adventures with the interviews I've been on. I'm a part time Hebrew school teacher on Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons - I teach 7th grade on Tuesdays and 5th grade on Wednesdays. Yes, I'm a fluent Hebrew speaker. On Sundays, I teach Kindergarten Sunday school! If that's not enough, I'm also a behavioral therapist for one autistic 12 year old who likes to beat me up sometimes, an occasional event technician (my boyfriend is an operations manager for an event company in the area and occasionally they hire me on to set up or take down events), and also a Slumber Parties consultant (we sell sex toys, lotions, lingerie, and other fun stuff!). Needless to say I'm pretty busy!
When I'm not working, I love hanging out with my friends, meeting new people, and spending time with my boyfriend and my family. I love being out and about. I also am a big romance novel reader, hockey junkie (the lockout is driving me nuts!!!), and imagining ways to advance myself...my goal right now is either to figure how to go back to school for school psychology or find a way to live abroad for a couple of months or finish writing the novel that I started (or all 3). TV wise, I'm currently addicted to Big Bang Theory, New Girl, Once Upon a Time, and Greys Anatomy.
I talk a lot about my family as I do spend a lot of time with them and I talk about missing my dad. I haven't seen my dad now in 2 years - my dad was deported back to Israel in 2010 and I've not had a chance to travel as much as I miss him. We talk a lot on the phone but it's hard not being able to just see him and talk to him. I talk about work. I talk about goals and ideas that come to mind. I talk about my OCD and anxiety and doubts as well though if I do it's under a cut. I am OCD though I'm not so much compulsive as much as I am obsessive. I deal with a lot of relationship obsessions and talk about that. I probably should find a therapist but I find LJ makes for great therapy! Basically I talk about everything and anything and I try to be a happy, upbeat, bubbly person despite it all!
Feel free to ask me anything and add me :)
