Breaking Through The Surface

There are 5 weeks left of school.

Can I get a "yee-haw!!!"?

Man, I remember this time last year. Not fun for me. I was taking this killer course for my Master's program while trying to finish up the year. Everyday, I felt a little bit more like shit. Not good times. Not. I had the summer to look forward to in which I would be taking TWO courses (the final two) right up until the end of August. This meant classes every effing day. NOT FUN.

But that's over with now. Man, what a difference one year can make. I'm slowly starting to feel better about myself. I'm gearing up to teach a new grade next year. I'm gearing up for another course this summer, but one which will only last for part of July and will be more fun, since I'm taking it with friends. I'm gearing up for a summer of outdoor activities. Yoga classes. Taking care of me.

Last year at this time, I was drowning. Now, I'm treading water. Next year at this time, I expect to be equivalent to a professional swimmer.

No, really. She's a teacher.

Sometimes teachers act just like their students ... IF NOT WORSE.

There was a teacher at my school who actually threw a TEMPER TANTRAM at work. This is a grown woman who has children of her own. I don't know why that is relevant, but it just is.

She yelled and bitched about how she hates the grade she's teaching and hates being there and bla bla bla, whine whine whine, wa wa wa, blubber blubber blubber.

Seriously, who the FUCK does that??

But more importantly ... who does that TO YOUR ADMINISTRATION??

Umm can you say unstable? Can you say ticking time bomb? Can you say CUCKOO!

I hate this place. I'm sure that the new admin loved to hear that, especially seeing as this is their first year at the school and she didn't admit to this in prior years.

I'm also sure they know that she freaked out because she didn't get what she wanted for next year. Grow the fuck up! GROW. UP.

Did she really think that by having that little episode, she would be handed the position? I don't know how she was able to come to work after that day and act like nothing happened.

Someone needs happy drugs.

Tagged by Mister Teacher ...

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?

Finishing up my first year of University ... realizing that "the sciences" was not my forté and switiching majors to psychology.

2) Five things on my "TO-DO" list for today?

One - Go to my last class for the course I'm taking.
Two - Finish my reflection paper for that class.
Three - Wrap my niece's gift for her communion tomorrow.
Four - Make sure my outfit for tomorrow isn't dirty/wrinkled/all of the above.
Five - Workout

3) Snacks I enjoy?

Healthy or unhealthy? I'll go the healthy route ... hummus and pita, veggies and dip, crackers and cheese, popcorn, cookies, chocolate ... oh crap, I'm venturing into unhealthy territory. Oops.

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire?

Was I born into this money? Because if that were the case then I'd probably do nothing except embarrASS myself on the social scene and take up an "acting" career because I was bored. If this money came to me by some random fluke? I would invest most of it and donate most of it. If I'm that rich, then I could probably donate to a lot of different causes without having to pick and choose. I would buy houses for me and my family and friends in different parts of the world. I'd buy a jet so I could visit these parts of the world whenever I'd please. I'd make sure that every city in every world had a fully stocked library of all the classics. Oh the possibilities are endless ...

5) Three of my bad habits?

One - Picking at my face.
Two - Eating as though it were my last meal when I get really hungry.
Three - Being paranoid that there is something stuck in my teeth.

6) Five places I have lived?

One - Big City, Canada.
Two - Not So Big City, Canada.

That's about it.

7) Five jobs I have had?

One - Receptionist at a Chiropractor's Office.
Two - Deli Girl at a Grocery Store.
Three - Sales Associate at a Department Store.
Four - Tutor/Daycare Worker
Five - Last but not least ... but definitely last ... Teacher.

8) Six peeps I wanna know more about?

I can't pick. Do this meme if you'd like and I'd be happy to read it!


I Need ...

... to stop jumping to conclusions.

... to walk a mile in other's shoes.

... to let things slide.

... to be more understanding.

... to never stop learning.
