I get to go to work

I get to go to work. I'm excited. Today is the first full day with all my students. I can't wait to meet the new ones and to do the projects I have planned. I think it is going to be very fun.

Yesterday was awesome. We had freshman orientation and I got to meet all my freshman and to do some activities with the art's academy students. They are neat kids. I'm inspired in my own art just by coming into contact with this group of students and teachers.

Healthwise, yesterday was not so awesome though. The A/C in my room was broken when I got in. Then it also broke in the teacher workroom. Having just finished steroids and an exacerbation, it was hell for me. I threw up in the morning and had to go to the clinic for an hour. Luckily, I was able to use ice and cold water to cool me down. Once I cooled, I felt a little better but I was a bit rough all day. My colleagues were super-supportive and I didn't have to go home early. Now the air is fixed and I am hoping that today I will feel ok all day.

Today I am grateful that I get to go to work in my new school.

So funny that you call me a perky ray of sunshine, I'm really not but I am trying to face life positively.

Congratulations. Your students are so lucky to have you for a teacher. Your creativity and positive attitude even in brutal heat, are inspirational to them and to me. I have been hiding out in AC ALL DAY every day except when I walk my kids to the camp bus in the morning, and pick them up at night. I think the AC being out would have brought out the nasty in me. Bravo for hanging onto your gratitude.

Thanks Julie. I felt embarassed to get sick at work and to be so high maintenance...

Denver Refashionista said...

Mike said...
