started day yelly at elderboy over stupid persistent adolescent crap.
forgot my keys at home
had disastrous first hour (tech glitches) and felt like I should be fired because I was a rubbish teacher for not having everything run smoothly.
it was not smooth.
(cried unnoticeably in in the corner between classes)
texted Spouse for moral support
class at end of day filled with middle school boys who can sense when energy level and patience are nonexistent. And they act like they have never been in my class before.
like talking over the teacher is okay.
like you can just refuse to move seats.
like doing activity is optional because you are just going to guess all the answers on the test.
one student (ironically high school girl) suggested that I whistle with my fingers super loud to get their attention.
and now headache.
no emotional reserves to talk myself into feeling good about today.
it was a terrible day with no redeeming qualities and I am a rubbish human being.
