It's only the second day of teaching this semester, but I've gone more casual than I would have ordinarily. But the black hopefully maintains the "serious" vibe, although based on what I saw students wearing on the walk from the subway (beach gear, mostly), I will probably still look vaguely professional. I just didn't want anything that fit too well, so luckily this skirt gapes a bit at the waist, and this shirt isn't too fitted. Plus, I try not to be scary/authoritative in the classroom. Not because it's difficult for me, but because I'm really good at it, so I try to avoid it unless it's absolutely necessary (they quake in their boots when I pull it out).
My Brooklyn apartment drama is not yet resolved. Our lease is up October 31, but since my crazy landlord is in the process of selling (and someone has made a conditional offer- I guess he/she doesn't mind the broken glass, the arson, loud music, and general hubbub of the neighborhood), she won't let us know if we're homeless until maybe the end of next week. (Just for the record, I don't mind these things. Even the sad dead rat on the sidewalk yesterday).
Ah, the many joys of urban living.
Hope everyone has an awesome (and itch-free) Wednesday.
Edit: You should know that I have been thinking about bedbugs lately, and my fear of them, when getting annoyed about possible moving. They're in the news AGAIN!
