Rx: chocolate, ice cream, early bedtime

Today was one of those days where I found myself wondering why on earth I chose this job and why on earth I've stayed with it. 

Lots of chocolate, lots of ice cream, maybe a hot bath. 

Tomorrow is another day. 

I love my job, but there are days when the negatives feel so much heavier than the positives. As teachers we can work so hard, put in so much time, so much energy, so much emotion and so much of ourselves for such small outcomes- and such little appreciation.

On top of everything else I read that my state has decided to start grading schools. Because, you know, I wasn't really going to teach and I didn't really care about my school, but now that they are going to be GRADING us- now I feel an incentive*. I'm so glad they understand how to motivate us lazy teachers. 

Deep sigh. 

* Sarcasm, in case you couldn't tell.
