annie is my spirit animal. 

People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her.

Long time no speak!

Just a quick one for now, life has both treated me fairly and unjustly in the past month or so. I have been fortunate enough to get some English relief work for the end of term one, only to be rejected for that very job when I applied for it. It has been a very emotional, gruelling period. I put everything I had into those students for the short time I taught them, which only served to remind me that this makes me so happy, that it is what I love doing, and that I am excellent at it no matter what. And for the record, I was rejected for the job due to my “lack of experience.” Bogus excuse but one that will rear its head time and time again until someone decides to give me the very experience I seek.

All my fantastic teaching has left my “to read” list growing higher and higher, so I thought I would share a few that I am hoping to tackle while in between jobs.

I’m currently in the last few chapters of the most recent Sue Grafton, so hopefully get that done tonight and get stuck into the next one on my list! I am looking forward to getting back in touch with my books, even if it isn’t technically touching them (I predominantly use an ereader now). My Goodreads Challenge goal for the year is 100, and so far I am sitting on 36 which is eight books ahead of schedule. Not bad, but by my usual standards fairly average!

Hope you are getting some good reading in too!

Love,
Andrea

Life Updates and Literature Long time no speak! Just a quick one for now, life has both treated me fairly and unjustly in the past month or so.

work at a school for four weeks doing relief after previous teacher resigned under dubious circumstances.entering an awkward work environment with little to no aid from the previous teacher, and yet crush it. give it every effort possible, fill lessons with fun and learning and personality and get beloved by the students and fellow high school staff. 

apply for the vacant position that am working in. decision date postponed and postponed and postponed until principal says will call monday regardless of the result.

spend monday glued to phone, making sure volume is loud, no one else is calling to engage the line, sitting on eggshells. 

no call on monday.

tuesday get sent a rejection email not phone call, school can’t even be bothered to call. 

getting out of bed this week? unlikely.
