Optimism

I just woke up from a three hour long nap. Now I have to do my homework, so this will be really brief. Stop doing the Snoopy dance!!!!!

With the exception of having three insane kids that I've had before, who now as seniors still show no sign of maturity, I think this is going to be another good year. Last year was awesome, btw.

I have been blessed with students who already display an eagerness to learn and think. Overall, they were very sweet today. It makes my job much easier when the students are so nice. Let's put it this way, one of my former students was banned from Disney forever for saying he had a bomb while he was entering Disney during his senior trip. Nice. Also on that same trip from the same period class were girls who got caught shoplifting at a Disney store, and then there are the issues of drugs and drinking....I've had some winners. Yet, I am still much more blessed than a lot of teachers. So I try not to complain.

So, I am looking forward to this year with a bit of optimism. I still have to deal with my newspaper issues. I'm not really stressed about it anymore. I have the support of my administration. Besides, after working with the subject of the issue a little bit, I've realized it's not me.

Now, to get to work. Have a happy Friday, everyone!

PS...You know your career has hit bottom when you are on Celebrity Duets. Wynona is doing a duet with Hal Sparks. It can only get worse! Well, and laughingly entertaining.

Yep, the duets and then the various "best of" albums. Makes me wonder what band/artist has the most "best of" albums OR duets for that matter?

What's with all the naps you take?

DL: It's sad when people don't appreciate an art form and just cheese out!

Fiar: I have a hypothyroid and a separte issue that both, on their own, cause fatigue. Fatigue squared. Jumping back into school leaves me really tired for a week or two until I get used to it. One of the pills I take a couple of weeks out of the month knocks me out, too. I have to take it at work because I have almost fallen asleep while driving (hour commute). I was up until 2:30 a.m. working on stuff last night, so I only ended up with close to two hours of sleep after that "nap."

Otherwise, I'm actually feeling the best I have felt in two years. No more brain-fog and I am begninning to gain back real muscles.
