Tyler? And Other Notable Moments of Thankfulness

I have lots to update you on but today, I’ll just focus on my thankful list!

  1. My cats are gaining weight. This is good news because a) they are too skinny, and b) I love fat cats.
  2. I’m onto the second module of my legal assistant course about litigation. It’s really interesting! I don’t know why I never took law in high school. I should’ve. I took Social Studies instead because the teacher was known for being extremely relaxed and I wanted an easy credit. We watched a loooooooot of war movies. To be fair, I was and still am completely okay with the amount of movies we watched. Then I had social studies with a different teacher who was much harder and — this is awful, I’m not proud of this — but it was the only class I’ve ever cheated on a test in. It was about the French Revolution. My friend, Amanda (who is now a pharmacist), passed me a note with an answer on it. I don’t even think it was a helpful answer but if I were teaching that class, and I caught myself cheating, I would’ve docked myself marks (because that’s what I do now). To this day, I still don’t know what happened in the French Revolution. Even tried to watch a t.v. show about it on Netflix but it totally didn’t help because it was about zombies. So I guess I’ll never know. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is I really wish I took law or Indigenous Studies or something. I could’ve gotten some useful information out of that. But even though I didn’t, I’m thankful because the teacher in my legal assistant course starts from the very beginning and explains how the provincial courts work and it’s REALLY helpful.
  3. I’ve been trying to figure out what I’m going to do with this blog and what my next steps will be after my teaching contract is done this year. I’ve been praying for some direction from the Lord on where to go, what to do and how to get rolling. And I think He’s given me a bit of a plan… I need to talk to some more people to hear their thoughts and pray about it some more before I share it with you but I really do think something new is on it’s way. If I’m on to something and God is leading me into something new, then I’m really grateful. Scared but grateful and looking forward to what He’s going to do.
  4. Also, I asked the Lord for advice on a couple of difficult situations. Do I say something? Do I let it go? And He led me to the perfect passage in the bible! I don’t have the energy to write about it all right now but I’m thankful that He gave me permission to let it go and pass right through šŸ™‚
  5. Long story short — I think I’m being pranked by a guy named Tyler (???) This is what I know: a) He likes pickles; b) He’s witty; c) He’s not my dad; d) He describes himself as a 90 year old man but he doesn’t sound like a 90 year old man; e) He does dishes; f) He uses semi-colons properly in text messages; g) If you text him punctuation, like, just a period, he responds with more punctuation; h) He’s not one of my students; i) He’s like a bookeeper for old people but not really… or something??? I don’t really get it; k)He’s new to theology. Wants to become Greek Orthodox. I’m trying to talk him into the Reformation. No response on that one yet; j) Likes philosophy, theology, and is in a heavy metal band but they aren’t very good (his words, not mine); k) He has a really strong Canadian accent; l) At this point, he hasn’t requested pictures or money; m) Wants to know if I’m happy in life. Am I where I want to be?… … Is it weird to be thankful for a mystery? At first I was really stressed out about the whole thing and asked one of my principals to run these numbers to make sure it wasn’t a student or a parent (it wasn’t). It took me awhile but I think I’m piecing it together now. If I’m right (it’s highly possible I’m wrong), then I’m thankful for this mystery. If I’m wrong, then I’m thankful for the laughs he brought me.
  6. I’ve slept so well on this break. I mean, I had a couple of nightmares but fell right back to sleep again and napped a couple times in the afternoon. I’m thankful for rest.
  7. I’m thankful for days where I don’t have to wear a mask.
  8. I’m thankful for ways to stay busy while working from home.
  9. I’m thankful for Epsom salts.
  10. I’m thankful for male pharmacists that you can ask embarrassing questions about your vagina. I was nervous about talking with a dude about it but he was like, it’s fine. I told him what was happening and he gave me some good advice. He knows more about my vagina then I do! I’m so thankful for knowledgable pharmacists!
