Summer term has finally ended! Summer term seemed like it was extra long since we had over a week off for MERS and had to work endless weekends to make up those classes as well. All I can say is… GOOD RIDDANCE! I am ready to move on and not marinate in summer term anymore. I’m also glad that AIS (summer intensives) has ended. I mean, it was cool and it went by really quickly this time, but yea… GOOD RIDDANCE!
We held our fall term seminar on Monday and got our schedules. Let’s just say I’ve been dealt the shit end of the schedule stick again… It wasn’t that bad before. But this time, it’s just obnoxious. Basically, my schedule is the way it is to accommodate other people’s inabilities to be an adult. It sort of pisses me off and it’s been putting me in a bad mood. I know I shouldn’t let it get to me, but seriously, how can it not? While I am busting my ass with a high-prep schedule, other people will continue to coast along & not worry about shit. This situation has put me in a sour mood and I plan on marinating in my own misery for as long as it takes. It’s just going to take time for me to chill out. It might take a day. It might take a week or a month. But, I need my time away from the rift raft to come to terms with the unfairness of this joint.
Aside from a shitty fall schedule, everything else at work is whatevers. They are reforming the debate program so I am excited to see how that works out. I miss teaching real debate so much. Teaching debate at Poly last year was such a challenge. But it was a challenge that I ended up enjoying a lot. I knew what I was doing all along, I just didn’t know that I knew 🙂 That debate competition really changed things for me and my kids. I hope I get a chance to help my kids compete in something like that again.
This past weekend, I went up to Seoul to chillax after the end of intensives. I was able to stay in a pretty nice hotel right in Myeongdong. I also got to meet up with Martha and catch up. I truly miss working with her. We’d spend our days scheming and snacking. I gave her some snacks to pass along to my former co-workers/buddies. Good God, I miss those wonderful people. I miss swiveling my chair around and snacking with them. They were (& still are) always so nice to me.
Well, it is time to get back to work designing my Junior Master orientation packet. Because you know, I am that crazy. My kids deserve the best no matter what kind of mood I am in. Until next time, goodbye!
