Who are you?
Read who/what Pascale is...
a student, a daughter, an older sister, a little monster, crazy for the UK, a pickle person, a night owl, a friend, hardcore, a joker, a little weird,
very friendly, a fangirl, grumpy in the morning, a hopeful photographer, a dancer, good with children, bad with left-traffic, clumsy, a party girl,
a teachers' assistant, an organiser, a hopeful singer, a RockStar drinker, a heel-person, into Disney, a blogger, a hopeful writer, a chick lit reader,
curious, into fashion, always on twitter, an inventor, against drugs, interested in proper shoes on men, working in a restaurant, impulsive, excited for the future!
accidently taking 5 m&ms out of a packet of the same colour, sunshine blinding me while I'm driving, driving my car alone so I can sing along to my favourite songs without bothering anybody,
when the music in restaurants is exactly loud enough to still hear it and still be able to speak to each other,
the sound of the tumbledryer, McFly, getting mail, shopping online, karate battles with people that don't know squat about karate,
making pokemons out of tinfoil and have battles, a heavy wallet, doing random cartwheels, living after your horoscope,
happymeals, sudoku, twister fries, giving advice even though I never really take any advice from others, murder documentaries,
taking silly quizes from magazines, Simon Mitchell's amazing art, telling ghost stories even though I'm the biggest wuss around, my glasses,
schoolparties with old teachers, researching random facts, sleeping in, exploring, Adam from The Struts.

Back to work!

I missed a week of work due to illness. When I got there this morning, everyone was extremely happy to have me back... it was a bit weird. I felt like they were joking, but Helen looked me in the eye and said "We even discussed taking your passport so you can't go home". Err... alright. I just smiled and pretended I wasn't freaked out. Definitely not complaining about the fact that they've missed me, but they sort of left piles of work on my table so I've been all over the place today.
There's some sort of company that's coming in this week to check 'the quality' of the school. I don't know how else to put it since I don't know the actual terms, but everyone's been going mental about how the school looks for outsiders. Everything's nicely filed up (in Helen's office that's mainly because I've been sorting through lots of ancient documents) and the displays need to look perfect. If there's anything up on display that's not of educational value, it'll make the school lose points... or whatever, I don't know how this works. Anyway, apparently Helen has told everyone about my brilliant creative mind so I've been working on everyone's displays today. I did one in the hallway, two in Helen's room, one in Year 2 and one in Year 3.
It wasn't until the end of the day that someone said to me; are you alright? I must have looked a little pale, because I got sent home immediately. I'm not complaining, I do feel pretty drained.
In other news; I broke the doorhandle of the staffroom door today. I went to open it but pushed it by accident and somehow locked us in. No one could open the door from the inside (luckily you can go from the staffroom into the library and get out that way) so Steve - the janitor - had to come to fix things and broke the entire doorhandle off the door. Way to go Pascale!
