Once upon a time I was a special education aid, roughly enjoying my state in life impoverished though it was. Then I got it in my system that I wanted to live in England for a while, so I spent a year living and working in a community for adults with disabilities. Then I got it in my system that I wanted to go back to school and become a speech therapist so I could still work in special education in a more specialized field. Then I didn't get into graduate school, so I'm back to living the impoverished life of a special ed aid, this time with a 16 year old roommate/kid sister to look out for. What do I do with a BA in English?
My fatal flaw is that I can never spell necessary, calendar, or sentence right the first time.
My pet peeve is styrofoam.
I can read and knit at the same time given a simple enough project and a heavy enough book.
I am on Team Jurassic Giants! We're going to kick Jur-ass!
