I am not updating the blog today. This week’s Tuesday blog entry is about how I am not updating. I am not updating because I am frustrated, tired and stressed out.

I am a full-time-plus (my own special term for overtime-less workers out there who work 60-plus hours per week, but get paid for 2/3 of that time) teacher who attends graduate school at night and on the weekend. I am a grant writer, a behavior committee member, an after-school tutor, a dormitory piano teacher, an Art Club sponsor and a Thursday night karaoke singer. I am tired. I am stressed. I have procrastinated far too long and now have too many assignments due tomorrow for graduate school.

For all you full-time-plus teachers out there, this one’s for you.


(I’ll update with a real entry later on this week. Maybe.)
