My Magazine

I’m tired. I’m hungry. I have a headache. My back hurts. Everyday is non-stop. The only time I get a break is when I sleep. From 5 am until midnight I am working. Constantly.  I feel like a lesson-plan-making machine. Yesterday I was so excited because I thought I was going to get a chance to read a magazine. Yes. This excited me. Very much. Well, needless to say I was so busy that my dreams of reading a magazine quickly faded when I realized how much work I STILL had to do. Me time, that’s all I wanted. I haven’t painted my nails in weeks. Yes, I know I sound shallow but if you saw how bad my nails looked you. would . scream.

The week didn’t start getting stressful until Wednesday. And Thursday was just the busiest. I had 2 lesson plans due, a reflection to write, grades to update, behavior comments to submit, observation debriefing meeting, to write for all 25 something of my students.

Tonight I will read my magazine, and I will do it in peace. Right after I call parents :)

    take some time for yourself…I went and got a Mani-pedi during institute and it was the best thing I ever did. The lesson plans can wait…trust me on that!
