Ennui+ Malaise+ Grumpiness= Mad Pedagogue. Beware.
I don't know about you, but I am gritting my teeth right now at school. It feels like the winter will never end. It feels like the whining will never end. It feels like this shiny zit on my nose will never go away, and I'm over forty, so now I may have to go see if it is a staph infection, like I got last year after I broke up the Hellacious Brawl in the Hall all by myself. It feels like I'm the only person in the school enforcing the ID policy or the dress code or the tardy policy, not to mention the headphone policy. I actually had a write up a referral-- my first real referral all year-- on a little twerp who lipped off to me and refused to comply three times when I ASKED her nicely to put on her ID properly, in a pleasant tone of voice, mind you-- and I still haven't gotten the referral back yet, which means AP Plea Bargain is at it again.
It would help if I could see a film with a HAPPY ending, but the only thing out right now like that is Chicken Little. Honestly, Hollywood, we get it that life is short, and then you die-- but we go to the movies to amuse ourselves sometimes, too, and for people over thirty, that DOESN'T mean scaring the crap out of ourselves. Something lighthearted, a little romance, hopefully featuring this guy
or this guy
Then a nice but slacker kid in my Ac Lab told me all the ways to get around the firewall at school. Thanks! By the way, do you think I'm on YOUR side? No way, so off goes the email to the District Computer Diva....
Anyone else with the Midwinter Jitters?
