I know, I'm weird

Somehow I thought it was a good idea to teach 7 classes this semester. I think it will be a bit challenging, but I like having my night class on mondays. It makes my weekend feel longer. I know I'm very lucky to be doing what I like and have fridays off. I will not complain, but I am often surprised when I walk into a classroom and see the faces. I just can't always remember who is in what class on what day! I am learning their names better than I used to be able to . I have no idea why.

I know I really got going on this blog when my dad was getting sicker and started to die. I am VERY VERY surprised at how I feel nowadays. Its been about 14 months and I think I feel fine. That doesn't bother me, but I did expect to feel sadder when I thought about him still. I rarely cry anymore regarding it. He was so important to me and to defining who I was and we were so alike that I think I thought the impact of his death would last longer. Maybe I grew accustomed to it. I don't know. The last time I cried was a couple days ago (first time in 5 or 6 weeks)because I wished I could show him this new song. No one else understands the same way. Matthew likes the same kind of music, but he doesn't go nuts about it. My dad didn't even go nuts about them the last 10 years and I hated that. Ah well.

The new song is by Muse, my new favorite band. I have never heard a band mimic their albums on stage like this one. They are so incredibly talented.
Here is one of my favorite songs, Supermassive Black hole. If you recognize it, it is from the baseball scene in Twilight.

Another BIG favorite is Uprising. The best part starts at 2:38 with my favorite chord at 3 minutes. I went so far as to cut this clip out and repeat it over and over for my ring tone and my alarm clock CD. I know, I'm weird.

i do weird stuff like play portions of songs over and over and over again. not for chord progressions, but for melodies (and sometimes chord progressions, but different ones than you like)

i also love my cell phone ring so much that i have been known to play it or call myself just to hear it.

i can totally compete with the weird.
