Today was actually fun at work (aside from the major girl fight next door in Ms. J's room during 2nd period--shit was serious and scary. Two teachers were banged up pulling them apart, and Ms. Merciless the 6'5" hall monitor who don't play got her foot stomped. One girl was lead out in plastic cuffs screaming with Carrie-blood down her face: "She think she hard? Ha. I show her who hard!").
I had kids dancing to the Ting Tings in my last period class. I had kids laughing out loud over my silly insomnia-induced antics. I had kids doing their work because we were giddy and laughing and listening to music.
I suffer no illusions. Monday will suck. But I make more allies slowly and surely.
Tonight--I get to play guitar and sing a bit with my bandmates. Looking forward to a fun time.
