After watching a thrilling episode of my new favorite show the HBO series "True Blood" and waking up rested I headed to school happy with my cinnamon raisen toast w/ cream cheese. Even though I was a little sleepy, I was in a good mood, ready for a good day.
What happened later turned out to be one of shittier days of the year, if not the shittiest, like demonic sculptors, my students and school chipped and chiseled away my good mood until the end of the day when all that remained was a broken rubble pile of cranky Kale. All I really wanted to do was march out into the tundra and scream profanity at the top of my lungs. Has that ever happened to you. I've been trying to be tough, trying to be positive, but today was absolutely awful. And whats even worse, I can't really explain why. Actually I could tell you exactly but I won't, its not going to make anything better.
So I'll just talk about the good things. I got to talk to Katie today, it was wonderful, I got to talk to my parents briefly but was cut short when a colleague came in to tell me about a sad family tragedy that would require his leave.
Now I'm not even done with all my schoolwork, after having to re-tool my lesson plans post Official Evaluation meeting today, I'm not even done grading the Lab Notebooks I couldn't get to due to the trip this weekend. Needless to say, I think weightlifting might be nicked off the agenda.
Lift. Grade Lab Notebooks. Eat something. Do Laundry. Take Shower. Calm Down.
Fitter, Happier, More Productive...anyone know that song?
