Excuse me, Professor...

I've been needing a new job, that much has been clear for the past...oh, two months, thanks to my berating and whining about being penniless. But, avast, me hearties, Stella has a new job. That's right. I will be a teaching assistant at my school. Cue deep breath.

I'm fairly sure that there are some people out there mocking me, since I said I would never be a teacher. And I hope that after this stint of teaching, I won't be a teacher again. But I need the money and the experience. At least I have help and support rallied around me. My mom's a teacher, so there will be a lot of me going "Mooooooooom!" and asking for help.

The course I'll be teaching is Intermediate Writing and there will probably be lots of freshmen there. I just hope that I will come across as a firm but flexible teacher and that they won't try to push me around. I'll try to make the class as fun and painless as possible, but I'm not going to kill myself. I've got more important things to do, like getting well.

As for my depression, I've been feeling fairly okay. I'm diagnosed with a light depression, a dysthimia if you will. I still have my ups and downs, and, as I write this, I'm afraid that I jinx myself and cause a down just by mentioning it.

So here's to surviving this next year! At least I'll be able to wear all those work/professional clothes I've been hoarding in my closet for such a long time...

Things I would wear to work.

If I had a real, nice paying job as an editor or fashion journalist, this is what I would wear all the time. Dresses! Diane Von Furstenberg dresses, at that. They're classy and practical...you can just throw one on and look great in minutes. Here are a few examples of her craft, brought to you by Net-a-porter.

All dresses are around 350 dollars. Not bad for designer...or at least, that's what I think!

More Forever 21 goodness.

Wouldn't this puppy look great with leggings and those Steve Madden mary janes? :D

Forever 21, 13.80


I have to stop making these request posts...seriously, it's not like anything fits in my closet anymore!

Steve Madden drama.

I decided to peruse Steve Madden and I found these. I figured they are a better deal than the ones from Target since they are real leather. But the problem is that it keeps telling me that I haven't provided the exact billing address that my banks requests. Which is retarded.

I guess I'm going to have to ask someone else to buy these for me. Dangit. But, aren't they cute? And they're leather!

So yeah, Vivi, this means I don't want the Target ones, I'm going to concentrate in trying to get these. Thanks though! I guess I'm going to have to harass Nydia or something...

Here is the link.

The end of Harry Potter. (Warning, spoilers.)

So I finished the last Harry Potter book today. Boy, was it a ride. I can't believe they killed Hedwig and Lupin and Tonks and Fred. Why did they have to go and kill one of the Weasley twins....man. Not cool.

I am glad that Ron and Hermione finally get it together. In the most hilarious of ways, if I may add.

I feel bad for Snape, but in a way, I'm glad. I've always liked Snape, for some reason. Finally, he gets some vindication.

Oh. And I'm glad that Harry doesn't die. Really.

Well, those are my reactions to the book. I think the epilogue was a tad corny, but, oh well.

If I were crazy...

...I'd stay up all night so I could finish Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. After all, I'm already on page 455. They're all a bunch of 'tards, I tell you.

Yet another shopping request post.

Yes, another shopping request. These babies are from Target, their Xhilaration line, and are only 19.99. Vivi or Nydia, would it be possible for any of you to get these for me in a size 10? I'd order them from Target, but Target doesn't ship here and Amazon doesn't have the shoes either...

I like these shoes because lately I have a thing for Mary Janes and since I can't afford the Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes (well, I can afford them, it's just not a wise financial decision for me...), I resort to these. They're pretty cute!

So Vivi, Nydia, please tell me if either of you could pick these up for me! Thanks....

And if any of you are interested in viewing the webpage, here it is!

Attention Shoppers!

Alright. So this is another shop request. If anyone can, would you mind picking up this top for me? It's from Forever 21.

Here is the link to the tunic. I'd buy it myself only there are no Forever 21s in Puerto Rico and the website doesn't ship to PR. Suck.

Thanks to anyone who can help!

The Sweet Escape!

So I have returned from the metropolitan area, bearing shopping and pictures from the Gwen Stefani concert...

The concert was good, I was dancing most of the time (except when I got really tired and sleepy, but that's what happens when you're old and medicated). My only problem was that it was a bit too short. Oh well. The seats were great, Klo was having a cow at how close we were (and we were worried she might just run off and try to kidnap Gwen).

These are the two best pictures I took. Or at least, I feel like they are! Feel free to check the rest of the pictures (they are precious few) on Flickr. :)

So yeah, I caved in and joined the hordes of humanity that extensively used Facebook. I had an account, just so I could see a friend's pictures, but my boyfriend got it too and eventually, the egging on began. So yeah. I am now in my old school's network, with my old classmates, something I never thought I'd do.

However, I made a mistake. I put up the link to this blog on my profile. Why is this a mistake? Well, quite honestly, I'm not interested in having more people know about my situation, much less people I went to school with and used to make fun of me extensively. So I corrected that mistake and erased the link to this page. I doubt (and I hope) that anyone actually followed the link to this page, and if they did, uhm. Please stop visiting? Heh...

Last night was not a good night, I won't go into details. Suffice it to say that I feel numb and I don't really care about anything right now. Which kind of sucks because today is the Gwen Stefani concert, and I'm going with friends: the Boobies. I'm afraid I will suck the fun out of today with my attitude. I can't really talk about what happened without ruining anyone's day so...le screwed.

I hope the concert is good. After all, we paid good money for those seats. I hope we don't get lost trying to get to El Choliseo, but, that's probably going to happen. Adventures in Puerto Rico, yay? I will try to sneak in my camera. If not, oh well. I say oh well a lot, don't I?

So we went to see the new Harry Potter movie and let me tell you, I didn't like it...I felt it was poorly executed in comparison to the other Potter films. No se. It was just slow and it didn't really have a rising, a climax, or a wrap-up...

Next week the final Potter novel is coming out. And guess who's going to get it? That's right, me. Damian pre-ordered it for me... :) I want to know what happens...I wonder how the thick the book is going to be, too...oh well, I guess all will be revealed this next weekend.

Your wardrobe staple?

So yes, I think it's pretty much decided that my wardrobe staple is a dress. After all, I have 80+ of those hanging in my closet. And I just bought two yesterday when I went with the novio to Ponce. So I'm wondering, and I don't know if I should actually expect a response but, what is everyone's wardrobe staples? Your go to outfit/clothes item/accessory that you go to always to feel comfy and good at the same time?

The Sartorialist
Style Bubble
My So-Called Expat Life

Those are my four main reads. Here are two that are recommended reads.
