Yet More Books

So, yes, I got yet another copy of Anne of Green Gables. I just couldn't help myself, and although my friend did sincerely try to stop me, I'm afraid she wasn't very succesful. I can't wait to read all the Anne books again. You see, I don't have my old Anne books anymore; I lent them to someone a couple of years ago, but I don't know who! Of course, it doesn't matter much since I practically know them word for word. I ordered the series again from amazon and I have to make the crisp new pages fit in with my well worn favorites.
I've been having very weird dreams lately. As soon as I wake up, all I see is a fleeting image of what had been going on in dreamland; I don't quite remember what the dream was. Sort of like having a word at the tip of your tongue and then loosing it. School, uni, exams, falling..black and white pictures throb in my brain in the few seconds between opening my eyes and actually being awake. I suppose it's the time of the year when I usually have to go to the zoo and maybe that's why the recurrent dreams still make an appearance. Probably also, the transition to a working girl status - one that hasn't been confirmed yet - is taking up more of my thoughts than I thought.
I made a deal with myself. I am not going to worry and fret if I don't get a job. Afterall, sooner or later, they will need a math teacher, and they will let me know (inshaAlla). In the meantime, I am going to laze around like I fully deserve to. I can't recall having a week to myself in the past 5 years! Not one week where I could sleep till 10 (yes, 10 AM, Im usually up by 7/8 by force or choice). First it was moving here, changing schools, and living a nightmare of a 12th grade. If it wasn't school work, it was the uni's club work, or my own million extra curricular activities, or of course, the several courses I sign up for at the Ladies club. It's true that I'm mostly to blame for that, but when you feel like you're in a race with time, you start being afraid of never having the time to do things you like and you start piling everthing you can think of in a mere 24 hours. The only thing I really want to do in the upcoming 6 months is to enroll in a quran school. I have been saying I would, but their timing was wrong for me before and I never looked for another one. This time hopefully, I'll finally do it and get back to my memorising. Be2thenAllah.
Besides, if my internship taught me anything it's that being a teacher is going to completely drain me of all my energy and leave me panting with a negative 1000 energy level. Now, tell me, is that something to look forward to after years of constantly being on the move? Those poor old souls at the ministry probably took pity on me, and said they'd give me a sem off to regain my diesel. They can always call me by the second semester and if they don't do that then, they will find a very disgruntled math teacher sprouting off obscene math formulas at their door by January 09.
