I seek it. And i find it often on Twitter. Today it was a whole group of teachers talking about the anxiety we get before going back into the classroom. People have laughed at me getting anxious about going back to school each term (it’s worse at the start of a year) thinking i should be past first-day-nerves now that i’ve been teaching for 4 and a bit years. I’m not, and...

Today has been a spirally kind of day. The kind of day where i start by feeling a bit low and end it hating every facet of myself. From my looks, to who i am, to what my inner monologue sounds like. Everything about me is unappealing today. I’m not thin enough, not groomed enough, not smart enough, not quirky enough. But then there’s the ‘too’s too. Too fat. Too nerdy (for some). Too old. Too...

On school chaplains
I’ve red a lot of anger in the last week or so about the school chaplaincy program, and I feel I need to wade into this debate with a different (maybe more experienced, maybe more biased) opinion. A few facts about me to start: 1. I teach in a government school in Victoria that has a school chaplain (and a nurse, and a whole team of welfare people). 2. I was raised Anglican but am not...
Alternative view points
So my date was fine. No horror stories, just not the love of my life. Moving on. What was interesting was the reactions of my coupled and non-coupled friends. Non-coupled friends were all “oh so you weren’t really attracted to him and there was no spark? Cool, want a drink? We’re getting Greek for dinner” And I had a lovely Greek banquet for dinner. Coupled friends were...
Bad day. Bad mental day
I am having a bad day. Or a bad mental day? Work has been good, so not that kind of bad day. Just a bad day in my head. I said Bad Day too much. I think it’s all mental preparation for this date. Preparing myself for him to be disappointed. Horrified. Appalled. Coz i’m too “ample”
Things that Shit Me today.
This article: http://www.abc.net.au/unleashed/45888.html To quote: “Instead of funding non-government school students who, according to Quinn, are guilty of working hard to get the best tertiary entrance score, funding should be re-directed to disadvantaged students who, supposedly, have the same intelligence and ability but only under-perform because their schools don’t receive adequate...

Peter Alexander is in the paper today talking about his new “muse” (wanker already for using the word muse. Really? You design PJ’s). He’s picked “Tahnee” (ha ha ha. Nice name).

The longer you wait the more likely I am to meet someone else who will actually ask me out. And you’ll have missed your chance. Oh who are we kidding. Like that’s actually likely.
