I've been so busy lately, working hard at school and grad school. It's a case of too much to do and too little time, with everyone expecting so much. No one cares what else I already have on my plate. I know you all can relate to that, right?
Now that I'm single, I have a little more time to get things done. I haven't gotten much chance to use that time so far, though, since I was recovering from the flu. The doctor said sometimes it can take weeks. Ugh. I finally feel better, but I'm still exhausted because of all the stuff I have to do and DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME. It throws me off completely.
But right now things are going pretty well with my students. They say the cutest things. Last year a student told me teachers smell like books. Last month, one student insisted on saying over and over and over that I have "no ass." One of my little, pre-pubescent boys tugged my sleeve and sweetly said, "Don't worry, Ms. K. You have a nice ass." So many things were wrong with the whole scenario!
Today a student was dawdling at dismissal and I told her to hurry up.
"Miss, for once I want to stay and do my work and you want me to leave."
"Well, I want to go home. You know I have a life outside of school, right?"
"Do you really want me to answer that, Ms. K?"
Ha! The funny thing is, lately she's been pretty much right.
