My last dance company had their spring performances this past weekend.

They used to rent out one of the University of Houston theaters for their shows, but lately they’ve been hosting their performances right in the studio.

I don’t follow Sportsball. Whenever “My Google” pops up with a sports score on my phone’s lock screen , I wonder “Why would you EVER think I care!??”

Ten years ago, when I wanted teaching work, I would be non-stop e-mailing, sending out resumes, and making phone calls.

These days, I get texts from people I don’t know saying “Can you sub at my studio tomorrow?” because someone else recommended me to them.

I ain’t complaining. 😀

At one of the jobs I had back in Houston: I did a good job cleaning up the place, but my boss didn’t like me and I WISH she would have shot me into space so I wouldn’t have to deal with donald trump’s* America.

(Lower caps on purpose– the man doesn’t deserve to have his name capitalized)
