I. Where would you suggest for my friends and I to eat before a show at the Center Stage on Wednesday? Ideally, we'd like to be able to park there and walk to the theater. Restaurants that are out include Copra (they're going there later in the week), The Helmond (we ate there last time), MidTown Yacht Club (I got food poisoning there, then I called them and they told me that I was wrong, I didn't have food poisoning. I could drink beer after beer there, but thinking about eating there makes me nautious), and Sascha's (just kind of boring, and we've eaten there this season already). Ideas?
II. HSA testing week sucks, by the way. However, today I was moved across the building for my first two classes, and the time between first and second period was the first time all year that I didn't have to float between classrooms. It was an amazing feeling. I got to stay there after the bell rang, and say goodbye to all my students. I hd a chance to straighten things in the room. Then, I got to leisurely walk to the door, and stand in the hall while I greeted the next class while they came in. I got to use things I had taken the time to write on the board twice. I didn't feel rushed. I wasn't late.
I will never take having a classroom for granted my entire career. Ever. Floating is the bane of my existence. It has made me as effective as only a first year teacher and greatly contributed to my worst year of teaching yet.
