For some reason my gaffers account won't load but my others will. Odd. I guess they're on different databases or something...
What's up with the busy face...busy eating???

|06:05 pm - It's kind of a job...|
The learning center at school needs an econ tutor because the lady from davis apparently can't only not teach upper division, but she's also screwing up the principles students. Anyway, I decided I would jump on this because I need more money than I have. I was the first one to go in, which is good because it sounds like they only intend on hiring one econ tutor for the time being. Upside since I'm a 'special subject' tutor I start at $7.10/hr instead of $6.75/hr, the downside is that since I'm a 'special subject' tutor they only want me for four hours a week. Which means I'm making $28.40/week. But I guess that's more than I was making ($0/wk) so I shouldn't complain. Mostly I only need money because the price of gas is depleting my reserves (savings accout). So I can make two weeks worth of gas money in one week. I'll have a little extra left over.
But anyway, in order to tutor I have to get a recommdation from one of my principles professors (which both happen to be Engalnd). Not that I think he would rate me poorly (it was an easy rec form that just involved circling numbers that ranged from FAIR to SUPERIOR), but I don't know, when he gave it back he told me that he'd had to give his honest opinion on some of them...which sounded bad. I did tell him that it couldn't be that bad because it only ranged from fair to superior so there was no HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT number to mark. I'm not supposed to see the form so he gave it back to me in one of those big envelopes. It was white though, and with the exception of a lot of writing on the outside, totally see-throughable if held up to light. This is how I was rated:
1. Knowledge of the subject: 4 (superior)
2. Academic Maturity: 4 (superior)
3. Verbal Communication Skills: 3 (above averge)
4. Potential to Teach: 3 (above averge)
5. Interaction with other students: 3 (above average)
And he checked the "I highly recommend..." box. So it wasn't bad at all, though I like totally have better verbal skills than he's giving me credit for.
Anyway, I have to go back and meet with the coordinator guy on Monday, but today he was talking about setting up a schedule so it sounds like I got it.

I have another short story for you but I think I'm going to wait to post it until I get my engagement ring because that was kind of the inspiration. So hurry up and get it sent.

My email won't send for some stupid reason, error 4.524hk something or other like I know what the hell that means, so anyway I'll just post:
Subject: oh yeah also...
He also mentioned that one of their CDs was missing
and the wife was wondering if I 'borrowed' it. I
guess he defended me and said that if I had borrowed
it I would have returned it, but he was just asking
Me: Um no I don't steal things
Him: I said borrowed.
Me: But borrowing without asking and not returning it
would imply stealing. And I don't take things. And
I'm kind of offended that you would think I did.
Then the subject was pretty much dropped. But
apparently the wife doesn't trust me. Though I really
am offended, because I don't like people thinking
things like that about me.

Got my hair color going to go do it right now. I got Spiced Tea which is a light Auburn color. I think it's the one I had last time but I'm not really sure. Why do they change the pictures on the boxes? Everything is supposed to stay the same so that I can recognize it. Well hopefully it will come out looking okay in the end. *cross fingers*

So yeah um I'm thinking that I might want to remove the other Laura from my gaffers friend list. Not that I don't want to keep in touch with her but there are some things I don't want to write as she'll read them. I'm hoping that she won't notice but it still seems wrong and all.
