Oh my god so exhausted.

A new school year always hits you like a truck, but this is a new school with new things to learn and new people and oh god a brand new Year 12 subject. I'm also teaching the School Captain, the daughter of some famous media personality and the daughter of a the vice principal so NO PRESSURE AT ALL HAHA.

I love the school though. The kids are absolutely wonderful. They have a great sense of humour, they're eager to learn, eager to please, responsive... seriously every teacher's dream. I mean, it's still the second day of classes so it's still well within the honeymoon period. Things could still go pear shaped. But I feel like this school's version of "pear shaped" is still 100 times better than some other classes I've taught.

I have such a love/hate relationship with teaching. I leave every class feeling energised and buoyant, but then I come home and the exhaustion sets in and I seriously hate how little energy I have left for the things I still need to do. It's only 6pm goddamnit. 

Anyway, I'm forcing myself to finish my Classics reading before I watch today's episode of Supergirl, but I'm so tired I can't focus.

... You're awesome!! Yay.

But seriously, good on you for all the things. All the things! -- I hope exhaustion subsides or becomes more manageable. I'll send you energetic fairy dust or something, to help ;p.

Hope today is A Good Day (TM).

(Also, for the record, I always felt really guilty Facebook PMing you at work about Supergirl stuff, because I didn't want to give you extra cause to think about it. Hahah.)

Really glad to hear your students are so good, too! I would assume the school you're at installs and attracts that kind of energy. Good times!

Thank you for your gift of energetic fairy dust! I feel better already, although that may also have been the fact I finally got to sleep nine and a half hours. :D

You don't have to feel guilty about PMing at work. Please feel free to do it any time! Though it may take a while to get back to you if I'm having a busy day >.<

I'm really glad you're enjoying the new school so far. AND YOU CAN SHOW YOUR COLLARBONE.

*Flashes collarbone so hard. Elbows too.*

I'm really enjoying being able to dress normally. Even though it's still a bit too femme and formal.
