Proof...

that what I'm doing is worthwhile. I had to count up the number of students we read with in this program every week to give the teachers an update. We read with 70 different kids every week, 43 of those twice a week. (Volunteer restraints have kept us from reading with all 70 kids twice a week.) 70 different kids are able to have one-on-one time with an adult, and spend at least half an hour each week learning to love reading. And all of that is because I've managed to organize a few adults to come in and read with them.

Y'know, I'm pretty damn cool sometimes.

And it's FRIDAY!! Tomorrow I'm going up to Everett to watch Debbie in her first full-contact fight (kickboxing). The girl is a black belt in at least one style of karate, the name of which I can never remember, and has been working on a couple of other styles and kickboxing for awhile as well. Tomorrow will see me cringing and hoping to heavens that I don't have to worry about whether or not she'll wake up. No padding, either, except for shin guards, mouth guards, and gloves. *sigh* Y'know, most people avoid getting into this kind of situation...

Friday, Friday, Friday Friday Fridaaaaaaaay...:)

Be careful on the roads -- it keeps snowing and raining and freezing, and the people up here still aren't driving all that well.

You know, one of these days I'm going to have to see someone I know in a tourney of this sort. I find them quite spiff.

(Then again, my hope is that one day I'll be able to at least spar on this level. Ah, the dreams of a reclusive geek.)

Guess who reactivated their livejournal? Alright, fine, guess who completely bloody forgot they _had_ a livejournal? I can procrastinate with thousands of users now...my head might exploded. I should run away now. Far too tempting to post and post and piss people off for the sheer joy of it...
