Working sucks. I’ve been back in the classroom for a few weeks now, but I haven’t gotten back in the groove. Maybe its because I didn’t have a proper summer, instead recovering from knee-replacement surgery. Maybe it’s because I’m too old to work and I need to retire. I’ve got a few years left before that happens.
I have a good job, and thanks to a recent contract, they’re finally paying me something approaching what I’m worth. I’m proud of what I do. I get it. I shape young minds and all that crap. Still, I’m ready to be out of the classroom for a while. Working sucks.
