Seven Reasons Why Today Sucked

1. I woke up really early to drive a friend to the airport before work. Before leaving, I printed out some worksheets and my lesson plans for today, since I am out of ink at school. I forgot the worksheets at home.

2. Realized I had forgotten worksheets at home when I arrived at school an hour after leaving my house. Drove home to get them. When I got home, I remembered to take out the recycling. But then I forgot the worksheets at home for a second time.

3. Got to school and made this realization. Shook the ink cartridge and got the last dregs of ink out of it. Printed out my worksheet and saw that I had only 9% of my battery power left on my laptop. Went to get my laptop charger from my bag and realized I had left it at home.

4. During my planning period, I went home (again) to get the charger. Also went to CVS to get ink. Got a parking ticket.

5. Lunch period. As usual I have about 10 kids in my classroom hanging out because they don’t want to go to the cafeteria. Two boys get in a fight, and I see boys punching each other for the first time at school (also, maybe in my life?) I break it up and get knocked down in the process.

6. Another crappy thing happens during 6th period that I can’t write about because it would be TMI, even for an anonymous blog.

7. At the end of the day I’m called down to the office. I had forgotten to go to my pre-observation meeting.

So yeah, today sucked. I drove home completely ready to get in an accident. I mean, the day isn’t over. There’s plenty of time for this to be an eight or nine reasons why today sucked post.

Oh no. I am so sad after reading your blog :( I can't even believe what a horrible day that sounds like. Since I owe you big time anyways, I will think of some way to make things better... you got knocked down in a fight??? I'm just so sad...

I blame you entirely. Just kidding, I love you. You will laugh when I tell you the whole story about the fight - come baaaaaack.

Wow - that sucks indeed! I let students stay in my room at lunch too (because I know that I personally don't blame them for not wanting to go to the cafeteria) but I always get concerned that something may happen on my watch. And that on top of everything else...I hope you're having a relaxing weekend to make up for it! :)

Well, that was a series of really unfortunate events. That day just wasn’t one of your best days. I think among them, forgetting your charger at home was the worst, especially if you’re a person who is always on the go. Your work can get interrupted if your battery gets drained and you don’t have a charger with you.
