(i had to park a little further today since i came to work late. as i was walking to the school, a car stops in the middle of the street)
man in his 30s:hey, you walking to the high school?
(i ignore him)
man:hey, you walking to the high school?
me:(i figure he's going to follow me until i answer) yes.
man:you look too much of a woman to still be in high school
me:(i stop and looked at him) are you fucking kidding me? i'm a fucking teacher.
man:(not bothered by my response) oh, well.. have a good one grown woman you.

i’m ready to leave san diego, but i’m not too sure if i’m ready to move back home. i’m applying to several schools in the bay and one school in la. even if i get accepted into any of the schools in the bay, if i get into that school in la, it’s a given i will be living there next.
