Today was one of the longest days ever at school, tacked on the end of one of the longest weeks ever. For some reason, the powers that be at school decided to make our big holiday presentation with our amazing, award-winning choir on Thursday instead of Friday. Therefore, we had shortened class periods Thursday and some fun stuff thrown in, which made the Friday all that much worse. I doubt if any learning occurred in the school today, though I will say a number of my students were watching To Kill a Mockingbird intently. Well, the two morning classes, at least.
I'm so done with school at the moment. I need a nice break of a few days before I even think about it. December, particularly this last week, pummelled me pretty good.
After school, I decided to brave Target to get that electric razor before I head back to Michigan tomorrow, and it surprisingly wasn't bad. I got a parking spot right away, waited behind only one person in line, and was out of there within 15 minutes, with razor and a few stocking stuffers in tow. The razor cost me $64. Not exactly how I like to spend my money, but that's as much as I'll spend in gas tomorrow and if I put it in that perspective I feel better about it.
I hope to leave by 6am tomorrow. We'll see if I can swing it. That should put me home by 6pm.
