I went back to work today after two weeks off. It was a little scary at first. When the alarm went off, I turned it off and rolled back over. It was 30 seconds are so before I sat up in bed and realized what I had done. That was extremely close.
It actually felt a little good to be back. I really enjoy teaching when I get the chance, it's just all of the paper pushing and discipline problems that get me down. I don't think I am really cut out to teach 7th graders, they're way too squirrely for me. I am putting in for a transfer to the new high school that is opening next year. Government is my passion, and I can't wait until I get to teach it again.
Oh well, I'm teaching West Africa now. Can't wait for all of the Niger/nigger jokes.
