He's been sleeping in my bed... and he peed on the carpet, so now the gate is up and I won't let him back down the hallway to sleep with me anymore.
It was really cute, though, after he peed on the carpet. Like he knew it was bad. I was playing the piano in a back bedroom and he came and sat by my feet. (It's annoying because it gets in the way of the pedal, but it was cute.) He'd walk around the piano, my chair, maybe whimper a bit. I didn't even know, at that point... then later I looked out the hall. Haha. Like he wanted to be cute for me so he wouldn't get in trouble. Then I saw it... and he cowered. He looked so pitiful, so I didn't yell or do anything. (Not like it'd do any good.) I talked to him while he stood there, halfway laying down almost, tail between his legs, not making eye-contact... cute. Then cleaned up the mess and replaced the gate. So now he doesn't come wake me up at 3am trying to sneak under the covers.
For now I'm staying at my parents' house. It should be good... they don't have cable so I'm less inclined to watch tv, but I just spend time on the net instead. I have been slightly more studious. Although, tomorrow I apparently have a quiz at the arabic seminar that I'm not prepared for at all. I'm still irritated at them for changing the time of the seminar.
If you tell people 4pm-9pm, saturday and sunday.... shouldn't they expect and plan on 4-9, saturday and sunday? Apparently not. Apparently they reserve the right to change the time, at the last minute, to 10a-3pm on one of the days. Not that they'll tell you which day until a week in advance. I don't get a day off you know. I work every single day of the week, 4 hours each day of the weekend. So I have to take off when they change the schedule like this and it would really help to know in advance!! But either way.. quiz tomorrow on some words.
And you know... the really sad thing is, I'm irritated with the change in timing, I'm irritated the instructor missed a day of the last seminar and now we're behind, I'm irritated that the instructor didn't cover much material that day in the first place, and I'm irritated at his teaching style which I find to be uniquely rude to the "hijabi" side. It all makes me consider him, fairly or not, incompetent to teach. Not to mention even his english leaves something to be desired. Sigh. Frankly, I'm irritated, and I don't want to go. Can you believe it? I actually don't want to go learn Arabic. Am I irritated because I don't want to go? Or do I not want to go because I'm irritated? I want to learn Arabic, I love learning it, and I love studying it. But I do not like that new instructor and I don't like his seminars.
I have verbs to learn.
