Sorry for the Attitude, Baby

After making a macaroni casserole and watching 3 hours of CSI (but no finale as of yet!), I feel a lot better. Today was fraying on my nerves. The students are shutting down. Now, it could be a combination of things.... approaching warm weather, approaching parties, approaching summer and no longer the constriction/security of structure (AKA school), and so on. The usual tactic in my program is that if they are getting absolutely crazy and not working, send them home. They have a choice: no one is forcing them to be there. And if they aren't somewhat working and they are absolutely disruptive, they really don't want to be there.

The students made that decision for me when they all, at once, decide to leave for the afternoon. *sighs* I took a glass of pink lemonade, sat outside at our picnic tables, and once again reevaluated my "calling" into this profession.

And, in true female fashion, acted bitchy/grumpy toward my boyfriend after work until he left me to my macaroni and CSI. *shrugs sheepishly*

Good thing it's May Long.

Maybe it's in out nature to be bitchy to our significant others...

But then again, I'm single, so what the hell do I know? :-)

Sweet! Afternoon with no students. Your job rocks!

Congrats on the new term contract, chica. I'm still waiting (although no longer patiently) for mine.

I'm off to see Stars Wars Episode 3! WOOHOO!
