Rare never before seen footage of my face…

Have a cold. Am hormonal as hell. But damn, I look cute today.

I really missed my old school today.  I feel like I made the right decision in leaving, but some days, I really wish I was still at my old school.

I went to a soccer game to watch some of my former students play, and it was nice to see and catch up with them.

My new students are great, but I don’t feel that connection with them that I formed with my students from last year.  Yet.  I need to remember that it’s only October.

Dear Tumblr:

itsssnix:

Taxes are not that hard. There are always people to walk you through your insurance stuff. Paying bills is pretty self-explanatory.

But in “real life” no one will point out the beauty of John Donne’s use of metaphors or how algorithms work or more importantly, perhaps, how to think critically and find evidence for your claims and how to articulate your thoughts and work with other people who, yes, will let you down but also will challenge and stretch you because they are not like you. Those are the things the world expects you to be ready to do. And those are the things school teaches you.

So stop asking how to do your taxes instead. Everyone uses TurboTax anyway.

I hate the end of the quarter.

When you are desperately trying to help a few kids not fail.

When everyone needs something from you at. all. times. of. the. day.

And you really need to sit one on one with a few kids.

But you can’t because you are so. freaking. busy.

And too many of them need you, honestly for things that were not your responsiblity to teach.

And you know they are trying.

But they are missing basic skills.

And you feel like a horrible teacher because you just can’t do it all.

Suddenly you’re 21 and you’re screaming along in your car to all the songs you used to listen to when you were sad in middle school and everything is different but everything is good

Fixed it for you.

Mhmm. Yep.

Somewhere in the muddle of survival and disillusionment right now… I’m in my pajamas at 5:30 eating cheese and crackers with a heating pack on my back right now if that gives you any idea.

Parents were in town for the weekend, so I didn’t stay caught up on Tumblr.

Did I miss anything important?
