I could be working on my lesson plans right now. I could be getting ahead on my school work so that when I go back I won’t be under pressure to get stuff done. I could do that. But I think it’s also important to relax. I actually have more than enough work to spend all of spring break planning and prepping. That’s an awful feeling. Considering I’m never more than a week ahead in my planning, I’ll be feeling like this until the last week of school when everything is planned and I have no prep work.
Teaching is too time consuming. Time off is really just more time to plan.
I did start looking for jobs for the fall. It’s early but things have been posted. I’m really hoping that something comes up at Dania’s school. Now that she’s going to be the vice principal I think her recommendation would at least get me an interview. But so far the school she’s going to be working at has only posted for a PE teacher.
Ironically, when I am lesson planning I’m not stressing out about my personal shit. Johnny gave me the whole “I was drunk last night, I’m so sorry, I love you, I didn’t mean any of what I said, I’m just not ready to be a husband and father” speech this morning. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’ve heard it all before.
Me: “Whatever. I’m sorry, too. So what do you want our first song to be at our wedding?”
Johnny: “I don’t care. … I’m hungry. Do you have any more cinnamon toast crunch?”
He hung out with me last night, but he spent most of the night texting somebody on his phone. I couldn’t figure out who. He said it was Hank, but I don’t believe it. He kept smiling and shaking his head. I don’t like it. I mean, I shouldn’t have any reason to be jealous. Historically speaking, he shouldn’t trust me, but still.
Ha ha! He has to go to work tomorrow and I have the week off! Score!
