Today was another long day. I ended up teaching 8 classes today plus recess duty. Under normal circumstances, teaching 8 classes would not be possible for me. However, we had a special schedule due to state testing. I think it was my principal’s way of disapproving of my choice of next Thursday for a personal day. She had me teach extra classes to two of the classes I would be missing next week. The 8th graders. Out of all of my classes, I dislike 8th grade the most. They care more about talking to each other than whatever I have to teach and are developmentally at the place where they push limits and disrespect authority figures, Some teachers just understand this age and love teaching this grade, but I am not one of them. Oddly, though, my lesson went really well. They were really engaged and it was difficult to get them to stop at the end!
I had another long day. I got home at 7:30pm. As soon as I walked in my apartment, Bryan called. But my phone died in the middle of the conversation. I plugged it in and went downstairs, expecting that he needed to be let into my building. I waited for about 5 minutes, but he didn’t come, so I went back upstairs and turned on my phone again. He called and asked me to let him in. Then I went back down to let him in. Even with all of the hassle, it was good to see him. We went out for dinner and watched a movie drinking hard cider. I fell asleep halfway through the movie. It was nice getting to cuddle with him though!
Diet: I ate fast food for breakfast, but followed my diet the rest of the day.
De-cluttering and cleaning: I de-cluttered a little while Bryan was here because my apartment was a mess.
Hygiene: Byran and I showered together, but I didn’t brush my teeth.
Temperament and mood: I was good but stressed.
