i have no cigs to smoke, so back to watching old south park it is.
ah chinpokoman.
Hope you got some sleep! :)

Not insomnia time, but I didn't nap. Hopefully this works. It should, despite first week nerves (which I always have), I'm really happy with my kids. Being told by previous teachers that this was the worst group ever didn't help. However, I'm usually able to judge after the first couple of days and I have a good feeling. I find them refreshing, interested and fun. (Fingers crossed)

^ best description of insomnia ever.

Sometimes you look back at a post and have to laugh. God these kids are awesome. I told them today that I am going to miss them like crazy after this year is done. We had so many giggles today (every day really), and they really do their best.

I am worried for next year though. I'm actually teaching my upcoming group and I'm worried. So many earnest kids in the group but they are overwhelmed by the kids who are just so behavioural. So, I'm evaluating past situations and thinking that there is some miraculous change from grade 7 -8. At least, I'm praying there is.

Meeting last week and got an idea of who may be in my class and trying to not think about it.

I sleep pretty well. I attribute it to getting up earlier than ever, going to a swim/squash match, and eating better. And going to bed early.(Like right now!)

^ hope you got there!

Yeesh, it's annoying waking up for the day at 3:30 only to find your transient friends still on chat asking "don't you have work in the morning?"
