I’ve been in bed for 4 days. 4 days!! That is a lot of hours. I would be specific about the amount of hours, but math. Oh wait, there is a calculator on my phone…….96 Hours!! Imagine all the things that could get done in 96 hours. I could have built The Great Wall of China, The Starship Enterprise, The Death Star, AND the Eiffel Tower out of legos. I could have Netflixed the hell out of some Ken Burns’ documentaries. I could have cleaned the house from top to bottom (the probably never would have happened).
I could have gone to work.
I could have used the lesson plans that I worked hard on and showed up. We are reading sweet ass books in all my classes. I’m missing out on watching their minds being blown. That’s an overstatement. 5% of the students’ minds are blown, 80% are really enjoying the book, 10% are trying to give me their, “I totally didn’t do my homework and I have nothing to worry about just as long as I don’t make contact with the teacher. For the love of all that is holy, don’t call on me,” look and 5% are over-medicated. I should of gone to work. Co-workers and kids are let down when I don’t show up. What I am trying to say is that I love my job and the people I work with, but it wasn’t enough to get me out of bed. I went to the doctor on Tuesday. I had him take me off all stimulants. It was a good ride, amphetamines. I wish you all the best.
I just want to get out of bed.
