I can sum up everything I've learned about life.
It goes on.
What it truly means to be a teacher
I haven’t posted in nearly 2 years. But after a few stressful weeks at work, I was inspired to write this when I got home today.
I read about teaching constantly in the news, and it doesn’t seem to reflect what I experience each day. It’s been increasingly frustrating to me. While it’s very difficult to express in words what a teacher’s day is like, I gave it an honest shot here (warning: there is a little bit of profanity).
I almost cried reading this because it is my life.
And you can’t really understand that stress level until you’ve lived it, which is why I have no patience for lawmakers who have spent no time in a classroom.
It’s time for the tired owl again.
6 more Mondays. Oh God.
And now for the part of the day in which I second guess everything I said to every student all day!!!
I can’t decide if I’m actually paranoid, or if just learning from my mistakes and moving on is best.
I should not admit this…
…but I think I have discovered the answer to my sleeping problem.
And I can’t really do anything about it because I’m not at a level where commitment that ends in me sleeping with someone every night is an option.
So apparently I’m not sleeping because I miss a certain boy, and I sleep better with him here.
I am screwed.
So, things I didn’t know…
Rhianna and Chris Brown are back together.
Thanks, Rhianna, for being an AWESOME example of how girls should treat their abusers. Thanks.
yes i know people can change but yknow what? he hits once he’ll hit again and i do not CARE how “crazy in love” they are YOU WALK AWAY AND YOU STAY AWAY
Den: Needs to be vacuumed. As does the hall and dining area.
Bedroom: Needs to be done. Need to sort through closet.
Bathroom (small): Done!
Bathroom (mine): Like… 1/3 done? Working on it.
Office: Never got dirty. Need to sort through closet.
I still have to dust the whole house, mop the floors, sweep off the deck, and take out trash/recycling. After that I can work on putting up pictures, deciding what furniture I’d still like to get and what wall decorations are needed, and getting either a hammock or chair for my deck.
I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of much since everything I have I wear or use, but it’s a start! 39 days left of school (38 if you wanna get technical), 2 months and 4 days until I get my teeth removed, 1 month 15 days til Memorial day, NB comes home TOMORROW so I’ll hopefully see him Friday, and life is good! Huzzah!
Now to sleep because insomnia is a bitch!
43 days of school.
7 days til NB comes back (8-9 til I see him).
Can’t decide which countdown is more reassuring…
47 DAYS TIL SCHOOL ENDS.
SURVIVAL IS POSSIBLE!
I’ve reached an odd point in life. I have begun to go to bed when Cat gives me her patented “oh my God you’re keeping me up go to SLEEP” face.
Apparently, my life is now dictated by a 10 pound ball of fluff. Who knew.
The Introvert’ Conundrum
Rambling beneath the cut.
List of things to do before Spring Break Ends:
- Go to store
- Lesson plans
- Grades (both grade and put in grades)
….Pretty sure none of this is getting done tonight. I’ve done nothing today but sleep (woke up at 11, was back in bed by 1:30) and troll the internet.
3 days left of Spring Break. I need summer already…
THE CAT IS DREAMING.
LIKE SNUFFLING AND WHIMPERING AND KICKING AND
CAT. I HAVE TRAUMATIZED YOU.
