I got Bub another shirt like this in a new size!

word count: 82

I got Bub another shirt that says “non-compliance is a social skill”, this time in Youth XL to reflect the fact that he’s grown as he’s gotten older, and… of course he wouldn’t comply and put the shirt on correctly, he would insist on wearing it backwards and not letting me take a picture of the text on the shirt the entire time.

Maybe tomorrow, or the day after, I’ll get a picture of him actually wearing the shirt as intended, heh…

I seriously need to come up with subject lines.

So I’ve decided to dye my hair blue. I’ve been wanting to for a really long time, and I finally decided to do it.

I also reinstalled Duolingo on my phone and am going to attempt to get as far as I can — as far as my brain will let me — in French. I took two years of Spanish in high school and didn’t retain it afterward, although living where I do I know enough to introduce myself and ask for basic needs. Truth be told, I didn’t actually retain a lot of what I learned in secondary school aside from the absolute basics (even though I taught myself a lot of things as well, being precocious). That’s one of many reasons that I’ve chosen to homeschool my children. The district that we currently live in leaves a lot to be desired, and they’re actually taken to court quite frequently for not following the IEPs — Individualized Education Program, which is legally binding — and they lose a lot of times in court. But there are other problems with this school district, and public education as well. They only stack on top of each other and get worse, so this is our way of avoiding it.

In about a year or so, I expect my graduating class to plan and have a twenty-year reunion (and wow, does typing that out make me feel old). I didn’t attend the ten-year one and I have absolutely no desire to attend this one or subsequent ones. I hope they save themselves some trouble and just… don’t invite me at all, heh.

And let me tell you, when I was watching Supernatural I never really listened to the end music. My bad.
