»Stole this from [ profile] chosenfire28

+ Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper on their LiveJournal.
+ Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
+ Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on.

Made this my desktop about two months ago. I love it so much. Usually I go for the clean and pretty wallpapers and this is one I wouldn't normally go for. But LOLed when I saw this and it had Speirs in in and he's my FAVORITE, so. BADASSSSS. ♥___♥ I don't think I will change it anytime soon, unless I find something that is even more awesome.

» Going to change my layout in the weekend. I miss the sidebar and this one, while very pretty, is a little too small for my liking. I just want something new. And since Photoshop and I are getting along pretty well again (we had a cold relationship for a while) - it gives me an excuse to make a new header and graphics :P

» Work is going well. Kids are still the most awesome ever after almost two weeks. I've met my trainee for the first time today (is that the right word? IDEK. She will be with me every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday the whole year and I'll coach her). She's young, 17 years old, but seemed very enthusiastic. I love coaching students and got to admit that I'm always lucky when it comes to them. I've never had a 'bad' one, so to speak.

Quick update before I'm going to bed.

» Whew. After almost two weeks of plotting, collecting, making lists, cropping and photoshopping, my Band of Brothers mood theme is finally finished. 132 moods with not a single repeat. I'M SO HAPPY and feel so accomplished! However, this will be my first and last animated mood theme, cause JFC, soooo much work. D: But I'm content with the result. I think it's a pretty varied mood theme, I tried to include everyone at least twice. I had to watch out though, because it almost turned into a George Luz mood theme. The boy has too many funny faces :'D

» Only one weekend to go before school starts again. \o/ <<-- look at me being excited. Going back tomorrow to prepare the last couple of things. And then on Monday I'll be welcoming my new kiddos. Will post some pictures of my brand new classroom tomorrow. :D

^^ Ain't that the truth.

» a story about sport heroes who didn't bring the cup home, but did come home as winners. )

» Everybody go and join [ profile] claire_kay's awesome new graphics community [ profile] palejewels. She's a wonderful iconmaker and I'm so happy I can call her my friend ♥

» Watching Band of Brothers again, with my mom this time. She's just as taken with it as I am. I love the characters and actors more and more each time I watch an episode. Lipton (who is really Donnie Wahlberg (NKOTB) and omg did I squeeee and facepalm when I discovered that. I thought he had a familiar face when I first watched the series, but did not really recognize him as one of my childhood heroes, lol) is one of my favorites. Along with Speirs, who's such a BAMF (and omg the actor who plays him is so gorgeous ♥) but a real good leader. And Doc Roe with his sexy voice. And I could go on and on. Did I mention I just really love the series? I hate that there's not really a fandom for it, though. It seems to have died down. That's what you get, for being 10 years late. fghklhglwg;gq;.

» Going to school tomorrow to get my classroom ready for the new schoolyear. There's a lot to do, since I moved with all my stuff to another classroom and I don't think I'll get everything done tomorrow. But I wanted to make a start, cause I KNOW that I'll be bitching and moaning about the new schoolyear starting in my last week of vacation :P

» Off to bed now. Have a good evening, bb's. <3

» Yes, I realize that I am late, but OMFG. Holland won! :D :D :D

My voice was completely gone yesterday. I had screamed so hard during the game that I could not utter a word anymore. It’s back now, but I’m still quite hoarse. But damnit, we beat Brazil, people.

I seriously thought it was over for us when Brazil made the 0-1. Then the second half of the match was much better and when that one Brazil player got the red card, I finally became confident that we could win this thing. And we did.

I’m still beaming. What a fantastic day it was. <3


» Went to bed at 11pm last night and woke up 14 hours later. I really needed that. It’s been so hot the last couple of days, and that combined with being crazy busy at work and being stressed over the world cup had me exhausted.

» Having a bbq tonight at our place. The sun is shining, the beer is cold, I think I’m gonna have a good time.

» Anyone interested in being an editor for [ profile] kradam_news? We’re looking for at least one more person to help us out.

» I’m so behind on answering emails and messages. I’ll catch up and reply this week, I swear.

» Happy 4th of July!

» i kind of want to change my default icon to the one i'm currently using in this post. i love it so much. but then i have to say goodbye to rik and omg, can't do that. such difficult decisions to make. about icons. life is SO hard. D:

» the only times i ever use caps are when i write things for my work and here on lj. but i'm lazy now and don't want to touch the shift key today. so no caps this time. sorry.

» work is kicking my ass. only 4 more weeks to go until summerbreak. but damn, i get dizzy when i think about what i still have to do. it's crazy busy and i'm stressing out big time. and to top that, i got 4 new kids the past two weeks and they all need to learn the rules. generally they're very sweet (4 years old and still so innocent and sweet) but they're sucking all my energy up.

» can someone tell me why i am so attracted to this dork? with his stupid glasses and smile. and why is this my favorite picture of him?

not a big fan of their newest song, LA baby, by the way. and i almost always skip nick's vesper's goodbye, cause it makes me cry. but it's a beautiful song &hearts

I don't think I ever properly introduced myself here on LJ. So I'm going to do that now.

lots of info about me and an unplanned love-my-flist list )

To everyone who joined [ profile] mellow_lights - thank you! I'm really excited about the community and hope to post lots of icons in the future.

If you want to know more about me, feel free to ask! ;) I won't answer until tomorrow morning though; it's bedtime for me! :P
