Nights like this after days like this make me think that I accomplish nothing in my work.
One of the paper editors wants to teach a dozen kids at school the software to lay out the paper. That would be good if we needed a dozen layout artists. It would also be good if the writing in the last issue wasn’t so terrible. I said that we should have writing workshops first. She said we know how to write. Not that I’ve seen. Meh.
My students are sweet. Let them be kids for a minute longer.
I’ve caught a cold.
Almost every student that I wrote recommendations for is looking at Early Decision. I guess they should call the regular deadlines Late Decision instead.
It’s rained non-stop for weeks it seems like.
I’ve got homework that I HAVE to do. No motivation. Meh.
Some of my seventh graders have learned how to be helpless. They whine. There is NO WHINING in English class.
I should take my own advice. But I’m feeling rather hollow right now.
