On the 10th day of Christmas

that my district gave to me:
  1. Holy crap. Only 2 days left. I went out today and bought all the crap for Psychology class for helping us move the old computers. We're going to be watching "A Beautiful Mind" and I promised them I'd bring the treats. Tyler, who works at a movie theatre, already brought a full trash bag of left over popcorn. Not the freshest, but it's free and there is a lot of it.
  2. Watched them sledding down the hill at Sugarhouse park today. With my camera, of course. I discovered that for the most part, watching is pretty boring. Except for three things : 1) big groups going downhill together, 2) snowboarders (usually inexperienced ones who fall) and 3) jumps. Got some really good pictures of kids going over the jump, like the picture above.
  3. Bought Stargate SG1, seasons 6 & 7. Finished up on CSI season 7 and Roseanne season 8. Went down to get CSI season 6, since I have 1 through 5 & 7 but not 6, but they didn't have it. So I ordered it from Columbia House.

Yep. Two more days left. I really needed the break. I just wished I had been more (much more) productive. To be honest, a part of me (a small part) is ready to go back.

Sweet, sweet Rossi; going to start looking like a creepy man taking pictures of teenagers if you aren't careful! ;) You know I'm just looking out for you. I don't think making the news for creepiness is a good thing; saving a student in the line of fire, yes, but taking photos of them, no :)

Jannx - as hard as it is for non-teachers to understand, having nothing to do for long periods of time gets really boring. I too, am kind of looking forward to getting back to school. Kind of a mixed feeling of wanting just a couple more days and looking forward to having a reason to get up out of bed again.

jo - poor, poor, calloused Gibb. I'm not skulking around stalking teenagers fer cryin' out loud. When did watching crowds of people having a blast sliding down a hill in the middle of winter take on such sinster implications?

I'd be more ready to go back if I hadn't spent every spare minute of my time grading essays for the whole vacation! And doing lesson plans. geez.
I have waaaaaay too many preps this year. I'm still stressing over getting caught up.

Hello Max. Thanks for visiting my blog. You and I are in agreement, I am also feeling the need for having a reason for getting up.

Jo said...

There's a reason I'm single, remember! And now I can add to the list, calloused :)

Max said...

Gibb, you're not being married has nothing to do with any personality flaws, unless you consider being an independent person who does not need to be married at any cost a personality flaw.

A Paperback Writer said...

Geez, Gibb, at least you're not married for a good reason. I'm not married because I made the mistakes of getting old and chubby-- my ex-husband didn't like either one, and neither do any of the guys I've met since.
Don't complain; being calloused is a good thing if you teach. How else do you deal with obnoxious kids and even more obnoxious parents?
