Cue the Alice Cooper song...
Now that school is over for the summer, my annual roller coaster of emotions is underway (yes, I am a man, and I admit to having emotions).
During the last few days of school I am too busy to notice any emotions other than stress (is stress an emotion?). Once the staff banquet/luncheon ends, I am so exhausted that all I feel is relief that it is over. I made it to the end!
Today was the first day of summer at my school. I went to work in casual clothes. While some teachers were around to work in their rooms, the place was quiet. By 10 am, I was feeling nostalgia for all of the good times we had during the school year.
I know from experience that by lunchtime on the second day of summer, I will be looking around for teachers and students to talk to. I will already miss he school year that I was so ready to end. Of course, the next day, I actually begin to get excited about the start of school.
Day 18 of my month of blog-a-day (Spilling Ink http://tinyurl.com/nc7gg3). 12 remaining.
