Interview went really well...may not know anything until next week, but feeling really good about it. I'm going to Women's meeting here in a little bit, then going to chill & watch a movie. Glad to make the 2 week mark today:

Just be careful with your movie choice Mariah, I didn't think when I put this one on and has been depressing me bur it will drive me crazy if I don't watch it all the way through.

I like a bit of a swear too obo - I'm an Aussie - but it's all about context.
I know I wouldn't be half as effective here if I peppered my posts with a few F bombs.

It's all for the greater good.
I reckon sometimes when in Rome ya gotta do what the Romans do?

Woke feeling full of anxiety this am.................have been "on the run" the last couple of days, so plan to stay home today & take it easy. I am working with a temporary sponsor & will finish my list of 15 ways my life has become unmanageable due to my drinking & my powerlessness over alcohol. I just wish it was something I could "erase" from my life.

Bloody Hell, Obo's in the corner......maybe do something relaxing for yourself when you finish your report?? Be kind to yourself Peeps!

Well, I got the job pending drug test & background check. They are not concerned about my DUII, so not worried about that. However, I only have 17 days since I last smoked, but smoked very little the last week I was drinking/smoking, so should be OK, but nervous. I will be pretty pissed at myself if I fail & miss out on an opportunity for what is a really good job. I've been stressing about this since they called me yesterday morning.

Have a good day peeps....will let you know how things go when I find out.

Hello everyone, I've just caught up on all your posts.
Mariah, you've done a great job since I've been away, and a new job to boot! How things can change in such a short amount of time.

Obo, where are you planning to move to next year? Sorry to hear about the work problem btw. Hope it blows over soon.

UP, I love the smell of cut grass too. How on Earth are you managing without running water for so long? You must be an incredibly hardy person!

Rocks, I also have to knuckle down to some studying this week, and you're my inspiration, so thank you

Izzy, I'm also in the "people pleasing"camp, I think most of us are more sensitive than we've let on to the world. I am getting more comfortable letting people see the flawed, real me though, and interestingly no one has run away (yet!).

I got home from Croatia this evening. It all went well, and I'm relieved to say that it was another sober holiday. But, oddly, I seemed to have more AV attacks this time than last year. I couldn't pin point exactly what was going on, other than perhaps watching others enjoying a drink, and being out of my routine. Anyway, I'm actually quite glad to be home. Mariah, I did do some snorkelling, and I loved it so much I'm going to get a wetsuit and start in our English waters.

I've been doing a lot of thinking while on holiday, and there's a few small changes I want make over the next few months. Nothing too radical.

Anyway, I'm off to my own comfy bed. I've not slept well over the last 2 weeks, not just because of the strange beds, but also the itchy mosquito bites, they've had a field day with my flesh despite copious amounts of spray.

Hello Dee

It's great to be back with you all.

Hello Dee.

Good to hear from you free, I'm glad to hear you had a good time on holiday, except for the AV. I've been fighting the AV lately myself, he keeps trying to convince me that I can go get high just once, it won't be a big deal. I've been able to fight him off, telling him it's a lie.
I've been getting containers filled with water, it's not fun but I'm managing. It gets old really quick though.

I hope things work out with the job Mariah.

Sorry to hear about the troubles obo, just think how bad they would be if you were drinking. I know that if it was me I'd have trouble biting my tongue if I was drunk or high. Just remember that the year will be over in no time.

Have a good evening everyone.

Morning Fools,
7.58am,
at the desk...

I swore in front of three students and a teacher. It wasn't at anyone. more in frustration with the system than anything.
The H.O.D in English has reported me....
What a joke..
These kids are 18, the teacher is 50 odd, I mean really I know it's not the best look, but an investigation is ridiculous.
Now I have to write a report explaining myself etc...

I feel writing to the powers that be, "it was just a word, so why don't all of you go and get stuffed...!" But no, that's not gonna work!

Now because of my own idiocy I have to bow down and take a couple of hits from the top dogs...




ha

who cares...

Good to see you're back Freein....


OK off to write a letter of apology........ but I'm not sorry at all!

In for the bargain..... finals footy...
YOU BEAUTY!

stay tuned..................

Sounds like it is getting blown out of proportion obo. Maybe the new principal is trying to make a statement and unfortunately you are the example.
Best wishes.

Hey Up, thanks mate...: Yep that's what it looks like..
I was just saying to my wife last night that you said not to give them enough rope to hang you with...... and that's exactly what I did...
No serious fallout, probably a warning either verbal or written....

No happy here, should have seen this coming...

I have a quote on my classroom wall now, it reads...

"There is a voice inside of you,
that whispers all day long,
"I feel this is right for me,
I know this is wrong,
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend,
or wise man can decide, what's right for you,
Just listen to the voice that speaks inside"....

Well I know I shouldn't be here, only a year to go....

Nice to have you back Freein - you were missed much & hope you get some good sleep.

I hope things blow over soon too Obo

UP, I'm sorry about the water situation, I know that must not be easy...would be nice if you could at least get a large tank so you did not have to pack water.

Thanks Dee...just hope to know one way or the other by tomorrow. Hope all is well with you

The washing machine will be going non stop today, just hope it stays dry so it can all go out on the line.

Two days ago I was sweltering in shorts and tee shirt, now I'm in jeans and thick jumper! We've even put the heating on in the house.

The tree in the garden is shedding its leaves, I'm not ready for the summer to be over.

Mariah, I hope you hear about the job soon.

I'm thinking about doing some job hunting myself. I would like to help out at a drug/alcohol rehab clinic. I don't know if there are any vacancies at all, but I might do some investigating.

Back to the laundry...
