Neo Retro

I’ve been on a nostalgia kick recently. I’ve been watching old shows, looking at old pictures, and listening to my favorite music from my high school years. I know it probably won’t help things long term, but it’s been helping make the mornings a bit better. It’s usually once I get out of the house that I become more like myself.


Out of Sorts

This week started off on a weird note.

Last week was a student couseling week, so the majority of classes were canceled. Private lessons and special lessons were the only things going on outside of counseling, so my shifts were really light. Since my current school didn’t have me involved in the actual counselings, I had little to do besides supplying other teachers with info. For two days, I was at the office, helping with miscellaneous projects or preparing for this week. One day I was at a school as support staff.

Now this week, it’s back to business as usual, but I feel the same sort of detachment as whenever I come back from vacation. Yesterday was particularly difficult since I woke up in a very strange mood. I couldn’t put my finger on why, but I felt seriously bummed out.

Today was a bit better. My coworker went out of her way to make me laugh, which really improved my mood. I’m hoping tomorrow turns out to be a good one too.

Remember to take a breath.

This year has been a bit on the difficult side so far. So far I’ve had a serious lung infection, an allergic reaction to a common antibiotic, injured a tendon in my foot, and have come down with a nasty eye infection this week. It makes me want to bang my head against a wall, but I have to remember to take a breath. It hasn’t been all bad and I’m still living where I want to be, doing a job I don’t hate.
