Its going to be really hot tomorrrow- and extremes in temperature really agitate me. Which is dumb, because living in Australia, I live through the hottest summers and most freezing winters. I digress.
Im a high school teacher in a low socio-economic area that is troubled by drugs, violence etc. These arent your 'average' teenagers, but thats why i love my job, the challenge, and hearing a kid tell me i helped them is better than any wage.
My classroom is upstairs. we have NO air-con. we have 2 broken ceiling fans. heat rises, hence my classroom is unbearable for both me and my students. we just sit there and sweat and it agitates me, i get really edgy and anxious. I know that i need to try and not let it get to me, but i really do struggle with heat-i have seasonal mood disorder, im affected by summer, not winter. I actually enjoy winter.
Anyway, this wasnt positive or constructive, I just needed to get it off my chest as im feeling edgy at the thought of tomorrow already. this is really petty isnt it? people are suffering all over the world with war, terrorism, poverty, natural disasters- i should just be grateful ive got a job. sometimes the burden is heavy.
Thanks HW friends,
