Schools almost back

Date July 20, 2008

This time of the year one of two things happens. I get very excited to get back to work, or I stay the heck away. Let me explain.

Before I had children by early July I was BORED OUT OF MY MIND! I would go sit in my classroom and just rearrange pencils because I was so bored. Then when I started working at Basha I was still bored, but school began so much earlier; this made me happier. Of course, it didn’t help that they would still be cleaning buildings until July 15th and I could never get in the F building.

Then we come to last year. Last year Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows was released right before school came back. Instead of me working my butt of to prepare for kids and going to work on the weekend before classes, I sat for 12 hours straight reading that book. You know what? The first day of school I didn’t feel any stress at all. Nada. Because I hadn’t even had time to think about it.

Now this year’s a little different. I am less stressed, but I am planning on working all week. I got a new boss this year… both departmentally and school wise. I am going to miss Mrs Crabtree and Dr Foerst, and things will be weird but hey this is life. We live it. See you when the bell rings.

Post script, if Meyer’s
Breaking Dawn had come out two weeks earlier, it would’ve been ideal!
