Unread Shelf: September 30, 2022

This was a month where I bought several new books and then didn’t read very much, so … yeah. And I even pulled a couple of books off the shelf and decided I wasn’t reading them after all; I don’t do that very often.

My evening

Came home from work, immediately took a nap, woke up long enough to reheat a plate from the dinner that I slept through and now I’m going to bed.

In which I never get what I want

Honestly, today was set up pretty nicely to be an epic shitty day– the schedule was all fucked up because of an hour and a half long thing in the afternoon, so my kids ate lunch an hour and a half early, missed some classes, and went to others at different times, plus the whole “an hour and a half under the control of strangers” thing, so I was well and truly ready to be sick and tired of all of them by the end of the day.

And instead they did great at the thing and on top of that three different kids went out of their ways to let me know I was their favorite teacher today.

It’s like they know I’m thinking about leaving, the little bastards.


Still tired

I dunno. I talked to the principal at The Other Building today, and I think it went well; in fact, I’m pretty sure that we’re clear so long as … well, so long as I decide to go, and assuming we can come to an agreement on salary. Now I just gotta decide if I want to go.

There were four fights in the building today. Four. I gotta do this.

Watch them give me a perfect Goddamn day tomorrow, the little brats.

I have an interview tomorrow

… for a job I’m pretty sure I don’t want, but I have an interview. I was originally looking at two other schools and I just sort of quietly stopped worrying about one of them; technically I sent the last email and haven’t heard back from the principal yet and oh well. I’m going to start the interview by acknowledging how conflicted I am about the whole thing and then we’ll go about the interview and we’ll see what happens next. Right now I don’t want to leave. Right now I am an idiot.

Also, I’ve just spent 20 minutes staring at the screen, so apparently I don’t have much to say tonight. I’ll let y’all know how it goes.
