Who Rocks the House?

I rock the house. How do you like this enthusiasm? Enjoy it while it lasts, because 24 hours from now I will be hating life. Or maybe not!

I can't really describe how these naps are going. The whole time I feel like I'm not asleep and I'm trying to fall asleep. But I'll notice that my thoughts are totally bizarre. like this time I was thinking about how to beat a video game that doesn't actually exist. Occasionally I think "Man... I'm not falling asleep". And then the alarm goes off and I wake up and can't really tell if I was asleep or not.

Anyway, this is going to be the tough stretch, but I actually feel like I have plenty of energy. My sleep schedule for the past week has been pretty bizarre, so maybe that's helped me. Luckily I have a project to work on, so I'm not too bored.

The Joys of Being a Mentor...

On Princess Posts

So, today I started a new class called TEAMS. In this class there are only four of us and we are all mentors to the kids doing online learning or currently failing classes. This itself wouldn't be so bad, except for the fact that I don't really get along well with any of my other mentors. Also, the kids in these classes are working on a large variety of subjects and what do I do if I don't know how to help them?? Another issue I have with this class is the fact that we have to be to school an hour early for class. This wouldn't be that bad, because we only have to mentor 3 days a week, but the days we aren't mentoring we still have to stay in school. I don't understand why though. I mean, we have a large variety of hybrid classes for which kids can sign themselves out and leave school, so why can't we do that for teams?

Another issue I have is how harsh all of the teachers of these kids are. I mean, We've been here for 15 minutes and they have already literally duct taped a girls mouth. I know they have to be harsh with these kids in order to get them to do the work and everything, but can't they be a little bit nicer to these kids? No? Okay.
