There are only two days left of school. I have been proctoring finals since last Tuesday. It is pretty tiresome just watching students take tests all day long. I’d rather be taking exams myself.
I’m looking forward to summer break. I want to clean up this apartment and start going to the gym some more. I want to work really hard and drop a lot of weight before my grand travels overseas. Everyone wants to look their best before a new grand adventure, right?
My life is pretty boring at the moment.
I did see some pretty amazing clouds the other day, though. I never saw anything like them before. Josh and I went for a drive specifically to look at them. I wish more people took some time to stop and look at the sky. The sky is so amazing sometimes.
Today was the last day of classes! The kids were beyond excited which really translates into “bouncing off the walls” but it was still a really great day. At the end of the day, the teachers all went out with the kids and waved to them as they departed on their buses even though we will be seeing them at different times over the next week for their finals. They only come in when they take their specific tests and don’t stay for the full day.
It was a crazy sight with the entire faculty standing out there on the bus platform. It’s a huge middle school and I feel like there has to be at least 200 faculty and staff. Maybe I’m bonkers but that seems about right. We stood there and waved as all the buses honked their horns (and made us deaf) and the students waved goodbye to us. I saw one or two kids give the finger which I thought was not too smart considering their teachers are all right there and we will be seeing them for their finals! Sometimes they don’t think and get caught up in the moment, I guess.
The first final was today. The Social Studies final. During the Social Studies Final today, I had a student ask me if how a certain present “changed the status of slavery” was like changing their Facebook status. I was baffled. You just can’t make this stuff up.
I have been really out of the loop this week. Yesterday, I got home from work at 3:30 and went to sleep. I didn’t wake up again until 6am for work again. I was just so out of it and, to be honest, so down in the dumps that I just let all that time pass while I stayed in dreamland.
I am feeling a bit better today. I am a bit frustrated because I realized today that I don’t know when my last day of work will be. I am not sure if I am needed until the last day of classes next Tuesday or the last day of final exams the following Friday, the 25th. I would really like to know so I inquired both yesterday and today but I bet I won’t find out for the next couple days. It usually takes a lot of asking around to figure out something like that.
My parents are going away this weekend and they are entrusting me with watching their things! I’m going to be housesitting while they are away. I am going to take this opportunity to use their pool a lot and take Baylee (their adorable golden retriever) on lots of fun walks. Oh, and I am also going to take a lot of pictures hopefully. I have gotten back into the swing of blogging. Now I need to get back into the swing of taking pictures, too!
