Yeah xD Might trade out a history class for broadcast tech, but I can't drop US and I want to take euro SO badly.

Histroy isn't as important nowadays, sadly. Broadcast tech, though...well, you take that and you know how to make EMP's. Simple as that.

And the teacher's awesome. He wrote a novel. I'm his teacher's aid right now and I occasionally show up to his classes when I'm not supposed to be there, just for fun.

TA is a fun job. I was one for the gym teacher at my school because he could trust me to do errands for him and not sneak of to smoke/have a quickie in the closet with a cheerleader. Or steal his money if he sent me out to get something for his lunch. I got to tell a bunch of big athletic kids what to do. Fun times.

I get to teach freshmen how to use cameras and show them file paths, and then geek out with the teacher, who's as big a nerd as I am. He keeps saying he'll make me coffee and not doing it :P He did make me tea once, though.

Sounds like a plan! He's reading some other book right now, which is apparently priority because he knows the author.

Cool. That's always fun. Like how I did a little work with Cherie Preist when she came to my college.

Writer of Boneshaker. Another good steampunk book. Actually takes place in Seattle, and she's from here.
Marine Bio. I want to work with dolphins.

Dolphins sound fun. Do you have them up in Washington? Well I guess you would, it's the pacific ocean...
