Today was a good running day (and other ramblings)
I actually felt an improvement while running. Like I’m actually getting somewhere.
Today I had a “slow clap” moment in one of my classes, and it was awesome.
Yesterday I wrote my first referral of the year.
Yesterday a student told me he had attempted suicide a few weeks ago and had been in the hospital. He was explaining why he wanted to make-up so much missed work.
Today I saw the same student in a terrible argument with a girl I’m assuming is his girlfriend. It really bothered me. I wanted to give him a hug. But he was literally running after her with all of her things. Because she had thrown all the things on the ground. And he picked them up. For her. But he did take a second to turn around and say, “Sorry, Ms. G.” I’m assuming he was apologizing for her language.
Today, my English students presented their own mythical creatures to the class, and I am always astounded and impressed by their creativity. One of the creatures poops diamonds. Another poops rainbows.
It’s been a weird week. And it’s only Tuesday.
