... or so most seem to think. I am begining to feel like there is some trught to all of it. tonight I had a small tiff with my husband. Why you ask- because I did not want to watch a movie (yes ladies this actually happened). I deciede I would rather seclude to my social media outslets than spent time watching a movie with my husband because I wanted to feel like I was a real person instead of just a teacher. Just a teacher who lives at school, breaths lessons, and eats behavior logs.
So how do you all do it? How do you have jobs and lives and friends? I thought I would be to that point by now, but I really am not. We just planned when his parents would come to town based off of the library schedule (which is what I am looking forward to most thing week... I need help).
Last week Hubster and I went to Greek Fest (again, yes- but this time in a different state since we no longer live in the Natti- or OH at all). All I could think about were the papers that needed to be graded. Then I saw one of my students, and it was right back into teacher mode for me! Don't get me wrong, I love *most* of my students, and would be happy to see them in the community- but there is some crazy switch that isn't quite me. Also, my first graders actually thought that I lived at the school. They thought that I slept on the futon that is in my room each night. Although I have come close to doing it- I haven't yet. I hope they can see me as a person some day. I hope I can see me as a person again someday.
Goal: (since life revolves around setting personal goals for my firsties) Go to my dear friend's wedding in November. It will include a 4 hour drive each way, and a hotel. But I will hate myself if I miss it. I missed one last weekend because I 'needed' to be at school. I can't make that kind of mistake again!
