So much to say/do/think…

So I know it’s been forever since I’ve updated but I hit a wall of exhaustion/frustration/stress and have been barely keeping up with my work as it is.

So parent-teacher conferences were good. Couple of long days but overall very productive.

This led into the weekend Ben’s parents were here. It was nice to see them and spend time with them but I got NO work done the entire weekend and didn’t get to catch up on my sleep. So that made the next week extremely long.

Lately I’ve been having a hard time motivating myself to do work until the last minute. For the first couple months I was really good at lesson planning for the week on Sunday and grading my papers the night I got them and things like that but now I’m happy if I get 2 days of lessons done on the weekend. Papers are slowly piling up on my desk at school and at home that I need to grade. I’ve hit a wall.

One of the other new teachers is leaving. He has to go home and take care of some personal things. It really bums me out though because he’s in the same boat as me. He just graduated and is a teaching fellow as well. His desk is right next to mine and we ride the train home together after school. He was my guy to go to vent and such and now he’s leaving. The other teachers are great but he’s the only one who knows exactly how I feel because he’s the only one who is in the exact same boat as me.

It’s a week until our 3 year anniversary. I’ve been dating Ben for 3 years! wow! So we’ve blocked out Sunday to spend together and do a whole bunch of nothing as of yet. If the weather is nice we’ve mentioned going to central park. It’ll be nice to spend some time with him. Since I hardly see him. Friday we had a date night and went to see Cirque du Solei. It was AWESOME. I would highly recommend it.

Well back to work for me. It was nice to have today off and get some rest and relax. I did get to have lunch with Ben during his break today. That was nice.

2 weeks until Thanksgiving!
