Fresh out of batteries, but still making noise.

Until Teaching Bootcamp, I did not know the meaning of the word "tired."  In the past, I've believed that I was tired.  Oh, those were the days.  I have been lethargic.  I have been sleepy.  I have been wiped out, fatigued, weary, and even pooped.  But now...I'm tired.  Not only am I mentally exhausted, my body is fighting back from the abuse.  My face is breaking out, my back hurts, my head aches, and skin is peeling off of my toes (that one I just don't get).  It's rough.
And it doesn't help that I've become an autobot:
wake up
get dressed
get lunch
get on bus
learn
teach
learn
lesson plan
fight with printer
sleep
rinse and repeat.
EVERY FREAKIN' DAY.
This mundane schedule is punctuated with the occasional mental meltdown, or tearful breakdown, or raging tirade, or delirious laugh-fest, but generally I've been too tired to be a person.

Here is a list of things I've been too tired to do.
  1. catch up on True Blood
  2. move into my apartment
  3. sign important documents
  4. be a friend
  5. watch the Nanny
  6. pick paint colors
  7. scrapbook
  8. get drunk
  9. blow dry my hair
  10. write a blog post
So...I'm sorry.  I'll try to write more as my work load dies down.  Soon I'll be back to my witty hilarious self.

love,
me

  1. I think the Nanny is something you can sacrifice for the sake of other, more important, things. You know I mean TrueBlood. Also, friend-being is good too.
