workin' for the weekend

This week has sucked big time. Sucked the life right out of me. Exams. The entire schedule is modified for double-period exams with a period of study time before each double-period. Everyone's discombobulated because of the schedule change and the routine shake-up. Seeing students at the wrong time of the day, for purposes other than those we usually gather for and all that happy horseshit.

Plus, there's been a visit from the dramalama. A colleague has gone so far as to say, "I don't know how I can look people in the eye anymore." And my snarky inside self is saying, "woe, woe, woe is me..." Personalizing things and jumping to conclusions. Making assumptions and accusations. How did I get caught up in it? I'm not 100% sure, even. What has been said, though, by my mentor teacher is that I should consider going into professional arbitration. Muahahahahaha...

And now I'm out of my home-life routine because I'm puppy-sitting. I'm on my dad's computer which is NOTHING like my laptop. He has a standard keyboard and I'm used to my laptop or my ergonomic board. Oy. I'm not sleeping in my own bed, getting up earlier than usual to get to the crazy frenzy that's been school.

I want this week to end.

On a positive note, I had a great therapy session and I am handling the dramalama quite well, if I do say so myself.

Good for you re: therapy. Great that you faced what was bugging you head on and put the hour to good use.

I know what you mean about the keyboard. I'm a Mac girl, helpless on a PC.

Tomorrow is Friday, and then it'll be over. Hang in there.

It's almost over now. Next week things should get back to normal. Have a great weekend!
