Probably lying in the dumpster behind Taco Bell and drinking metal polish is a couple of steps below that.

It's because the Forums Are Too Amazingly Long or something. We should start a thread about it. Call it FATAL.

It's not because of the drift. Why does everyone keep blaming the drift for everything. I have everything totally under control.

Well, it's done. I left some stuff open beyond those - the homebrew boards, conversions board, all the non-PF/SF/D&D boards in Gamer Life, etc. - but other than the APs and the above-listed stuff everything else Paizo-related is hidden.

At this point I think this is the only way to avoid stumbling onto the sorts of nonsense I keep finding myself accidentally running into, and the kind of stupidity that convinced me to quit the boards for a while, again.

I found that just hiding anything labeled "Rules", "Advice", or "General Discussion" did it for me.

Though looking at it now, I have almost everything hidden, with the only things expanded being:

  • Website Feedback
  • The AP-specific threads
  • Campaign Journals
  • Off-Topic Discussions
  • Now that politics is verboten, it makes things amazingly peaceful around here.

    Oh, and illness update: To bed at 7:15 last night assisted by Prince Nyquil, woke up at 4:45 am this morning. I still have a mild sore throat, but it's better than it was yesterday.

    So I have to go up on the roof in the rain today and try to re-position the rubber to protect Impus Minor's room, but otherwise another day of west and wewaxation should have me back to my bright-eyed, venting-at-the-world self...

    EDIT: Carp. I spoke too soon. As the "Nyquil hangover" is wearing off, the sore throat is worsening, the lungs are tightening, and my energy level is plummeting. Looks like I'm not out of the woods yet.

    C'mon, body! Just make it to Friday afternoon! That's all I ask...

    Argh! I am remembering why I hate it when my husband works from home!
    -Tries to do housework, gets interrupted by random endless questions
    -Tries to write the words, gets interrupted constantly
    -Tries to eat, he wants to stop and talk about stuff (I hate talking and eating, like it is my least favorite thing ever, dinner table conversation is my nightmare)
    -Leaves house to go and write, just gets settled at coffee shop to write the words, get urgent call about questions that urgently have to be answered right this minute

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!

    (Some of the questions are legit and genuinely urgent. It's just that they're surrounded by lots of questions that are neither urgent nor important so I'm out of patience. Plus I'm an introvert and he just. will. not. leave. me. alone. Like, dude, please, go talk to other people, I'm begging you! I can't think like this! And my stress level is through the roof)

    NaNo is not going well....I have no plot, I have no plan, I have absolutely nothing....and less than half of the words I need to finish this thing. It's not just bad, it's starting to stray into James Joyce territory just to pad the freaking word count...the last few thousand words may end up being a long essay on the joys of yarn at this rate....

    If I could get wifi in the basement storage unit I'd work down there, but as he proved today, even not being in the building isn't far enough....Hmm. Maybe the lack of signal in the basement is a plus....

    We added economics as a semester elective this year. I honestly don't mind, but no one in the district has taught it before, so I'm floating on my own through the curriculum this year. It's an experience.


    Oh, that's paaaaiiiinnnnful. I'm sorry.

    So elective is voluntary or something, I'm genuinely curious, I was home schooled.


    1 person marked this as a favorite.

    Sort of. The kids are required to have a certain number of credits in each subject to graduate. 4 English, 3 social studies, etc.

    But social studies gets broken down into 2.5 mandatory credits: 1 year of US History, 1 year of World History, and a semester of government. This means they have to find another social studies class to round out that third credit. We give them the choice of current events or economics.

    I'm talking to the counselor about some other options I'd be willing to take on to give them some more choices since as of this year, I've officially transitioned from full-time English to half-English/half-social studies.

    And I...um...actually like teaching economics. >_>

    Public schools generally have 3-4 "levels" of classes:

    (1) Core: You must pass this class to graduate. For example, Math 1 or English 1

    (2) College Prereq: You must pass this class if you plan on going to college. For example, Math 3 or English 3

    (3) "Real" College Prereq: You must pass this class if you plan on going to an upper-echelon college. For example, Math 4 or English 4. A good example in California: The "state" schools only require 3 years of English and 3 years of Math, so if you want to go to California State East Bay, you need 3 years of each. On the other hand, if you want to go to the University of California, you need 4 years of each.

    (4) Electives: You must pass a certain number of these to graduate, or go to college, or go to a "real" college, but which ones you take doesn't matter. So Impus Major is in Culinary Arts. I took Psychology. Take whatever you want, as long as you "broaden your horizons".

    So I freely admit it: I'm a paladin of Erastil. Family is everything to me, and I'm willing to sacrifice a lot for my family's happiness.

    So to see just how ****ed up some other families are just incenses me.

    As many of you know, one of the teens in my gaming group has clinical depression and has been hospitalized twice for suicidal tendencies. You'd think his family would be supportive.

    Instead, I just got a call from him that he HAS to get out of his house because his other family members are all screaming and yelling at each other and it's really upsetting him.

    So yeah, I'm sick, I'm working, and I'm sheltering a poor teenager because his d**ned family won't show him any consideration.

    Bleh.

    The irritation mostly comes from the fact that it's a new subject that I've never taught before, so I have to get everything written out for the first time. Not helping is the fact that in my infinite wisdom, I've decided to combine chapters into bigger conceptual units (and fewer tests >_>), so I'm trying to streamline a lot of concepts into one manageable chunk.

    Next year, it'll be cake. Everything will already be preplanned for it.

    LOVED teaching at Saint Mary's College for "January Term", where you got to create your own class.

    HATED teaching January Term, because I had to write an entirely new and interesting course every single year...
