Sorry, this week sucks and I need to rant.
Had a 3 day weekend last weekend (Friday off), so I was finally able to visit my boyfriend in his new city for the first time. Of course Saturday morning I woke up with a sore throat. By Saturday night, I had a fever too, and even drinking honey tea felt like swallowing broken glass. Ended up not sleeping at all that night and had an early flight Sunday morning. I suspect flying with a bad cold is actually a real level of hell. I was starting to worry that I had strep throat, so I went to the doctor, which is always a fun thing to do in a foreign language. Sunday night, I was the sickest I had been since living on my own.
Went back to work Tuesday and freaked out the other teachers by looking like I was recenlty bitten by a zombie. The fact that I had broken a few small blood vessels under my eyes during the horror that was Sunday night probably didn’t help.
Yesterday, one of my classes was so out of control, the principal had to sit in for nearly the whole class. I have them on my longest day (a class every period, no planning period), so it’s absolutely exhausting to deal with them. They’re my only class (out of 21) that acts like that, and they act like that for the other teachers too, so I have no idea what to do about them.
Yesterday the weather also warmed up slightly. Just warm enough to wake the gnats back up. So I got covered in the devil creatures on my way home from work again (I bike to work).
This morning, I melted one of my good bras. I can’t find bras that fit me here. This is a tragedy. That’ll teach me to keep my shit away from the space heater while I’m in the shower.
But it’s finally Friday afternoon. I’m going to spend the night watching TV, drinking firewhiskey, and praying that next week is better.
