Today I had a shortened work day. We had PD (professional development) in the afternoon. And like all other PD I have been to, it has absolutely NO bearing on what I actually do on a daily basis. I understand that as a special area teacher, nobody cares about what I do, but I don’t understand why they force me to sit in on these things that are a complete waste of time. I spent the whole time grading papers and fighting off sleep.
I heard back from my old doctor. He refused to call in a prescription because it’s been a while since I’ve seen him. His office is two and a half hours away, so I can’t even see him. That means I’ll have to find a new doctor, get an appointment, wait for the test results, THEN they call in a prescription.
On my way home from work, my brakes started to grind every time I pressed them. I then went to a work gathering. I always feel out of place at those things. I tried to converse with them as well as I could, but still had way too little in common with any of them. I stayed later than meant to, but it took them forever to bring out each course. I never understood why I had so little in common with other teachers. I love teaching and so do they. Apparently that’s all we have in common.
Hygiene – Bad. I didn’t shower or brush my teeth.
Mood and temperament – My mood was pretty neutral. I was able to treat my coworkers well despite the fact that I was tired and thought their conversation was inane drivel. I was tired and hungry all day. I can’t wait until I get back on my meds.
