I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
you know what kills me, what really haunts my deepest darkest dreams? harry using lumos at privet drive in prisoner of azkaban to do his homework. WARNER BROTHERS! Harry Potter WAS NOT ALLOWED TO DO MAGIC OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL. THAT’S WHY HE RAN AWAY AFTER BLOWING UP HIS FUCKING AUNT. Do you understand the MAJOR continuity problem in your adaptation of this billion-dollar book series? DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
I’m so conflicted about this moment always because CONTINUITY, PLOT HOLE, but also because I love the obvious and not at all subtle puberty metaphor.
I’ve started working on my first lesson plans but who am I kidding, the first month is going to be a lot of crying from the babies during my work day and a lot of crying afterwards for me?
Whatever heading to the library to look at potential board books for circle time, meeting with my boss tomorrow because HELP AM I DOING EVERYTHING WRONG, etc etc.
(I’m not, she told me she’d be in the office this week and if I wanted to stop in to talk things over that’s okay, and I took her up on it? WHO AM I, utilizin’ resources, askin’ for help)
