And why do I never notice until it is already posted?
Pretty much every time I go out in public in this state, or watch the news, I am exceptionally glad of two aspects of my life:
1) I do not have children and I do not intend to ever have children.
2) I am not Catholic (or you know, religious in any way what so ever)
Which leads me to be exceptionally glad that my parents encouraged and empowered me to make informed, thoughtful life choices.
but sometimes there are days when I wonder why the fuck I put up with the bullshit.
Last week one of the other instructors called the rest of us all liars because we adequately prepare our students, and you know, actually do our jobs. She could not believe that our students were capable of passing the final. She just went on and on about how it was impossible and she was doing everything the rest of us were.
Today, a student followed me after class (in my 5 minute break where I usually like to pee before my next class) to tell me off. From what I can tell, it was because I tried to encourage her in class and because I help students other than her in class. It was kind of a disjointed rant though, so I could be wrong about that. Also, I think that she was pissed off that I told her to wait to tell me off during my office hours and not in my 5 minute pee break. That didn’t work of course, she just started telling me off and stood in my way.
I have 75-ish students and at least 72 of them are good people and at least 65 of them are working their asses off, but man I just kinda want to throw up my hands today.
I am not looking forward to this week at all. PCOS sucks, and it is gong to kick my ass this week. I’m already exhausted. I think I’m going to go to bed and read and hope that magic fairies steal my uterus during the night.
