This is seriously the best part of the day. It’s my conference period, it’s dark and there is a random episode of Supernatural on in the background. Grading papers, reading nonsense, and just enjoying a moment of solitude. Absolute bliss… even if it only lasts for a moment.
On the upside, robotics is finally going well. The fact that time is running out rapidly has put a fire under the kids and they are frantically programming getting things done! I love this part! The madness, the insanity that means that they are thinking, creating, working. Where they can accomplish a million times more in the next 18 days than they have in the past four months. This is the best part of the year. The energy is so good in my room right now. Even the frustration is good because it means they are working.
Christmas is coming so fast, and I’m so not ready… At some point I am going to have to wrap presents (I hate wrapping presents, because I suck at it). I will have to actually go and buy presents, I have a list. somewhere. ok, in my book but I do need to actually put words into things and things into boxes and boxes into wrapped gifts. That seems like a lot of effort. Maybe I need a day off… you know, in order to get something done, or just to lay on the couch and watch Netflix. :)
We are apparently having a Christmas party for the family at our house on the day after the school dance. Yay. So I will cook. Yay. I am actually looking forward to that. I hate cooking regular food because I have to. I love cooking because it’s fancy fun things that I want to. So party food is fun. Although the timing could be better but with so little time left before Christmas and family being what family is, we have this one day to do the whole Christmas thing. On the other hand, I will get to see my mom and have Christmas before Christmas this year.. Last year, I think it was closer to St. Patrick’s Day. (Timing is really not her thing.)
And now my conference period is over and reality is back. Two more classes to go before the school day is over and today has been a long, long day.
