The past 24 hours
10:30pm yesterday: Oh look! It’s time for bed. Snuggle into the warm bed for sleep.
11:15pm: Why am I still awake?
12:30pm: Oh my gosh I’m never going to fall asleep tonight. (Begin thinking about work that needs to be done for school; who I need to email; what next year will be like without a teacher on my grade level team; grammar notes to finish…)
1:15am: Okay, whatever. If I’m awake, I’ll just get work done instead of tossing around in my bed.
2:00am: Close computer. Try to sleep again.
7:40am: There’s sunlight coming into my window? OH MY GOD WHAT TIME IS IT I AM LATE FOR SCHOOL I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THERE 10 MINUTES AGO MY FIRST CLASS IS IN LESS THAN AN HOUR
7:41am: Text teachers letting them know I’ll be late but there for the first class
8:20am: Get to school (after a shower)
8:22am: Student walks into my room: “Oh, there you are! I brought you this…” (begins to pull out an entire Chickfila breakfast meal—chicken minis, hashbrowns, and orange juice included.)
