FRIENDS ONLY

You know the drill.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Last week I had a meeting with my principal where I made an ultimatum: stay with my students in the 4th grade, or leave.

Well, I'm leaving now.

I had really not banked on this. I had invested a lot of hope and excitement into staying in Kansas City for just another year to be with these kids, but now it isn't happening. I also did not make any plans for moving or switching jobs. So my life is basically a mess right now and I am freaking out so I'll probably just move to Mexico and sit on a beach and sell handmade bracelets until I stop having a panic attack.

I'm also going to miss those cuties, because they are SO DAMN CUTE. Ugh. I'm crying already.
 
 
 
 
 
 



We're so happy even when we're smiling out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court and talk it out like yeah



Um, where did September go? When did I discover that I absolutely love 3rd graders? How did I get here? And why are you in my apartment?
 
 
 
 
 
 
“Dear Ms. Turner, I want to thank you because you are the bravest teacher I know. You are brave because you deal with my attitude when I get mad. You make math so much easier for me. You are my teacher and my best friend. I am glad I had you as my teacher this year. Sometimes I wish you would be my teacher forever and ever.”

Y'ALL I'M GONNA FUCKING CRY
 
 
 
 
 
 
"But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human. So she was turned to a pillar of salt. So it goes. People aren't supposed to look back. I'm certainly not going to do it anymore." -Kurt Vonnegut
 
 
 
 
 
 
I think I will probably spend all next week in the library.


My estimate is that only have of that time will be spent on my thesis, with the other half spent watching The Hour. (Which is really good so you should watch it!)
 
 
 
 
 
 
Oh shit, another year went by and I barely even noticed. I should get on that.

I'm not even sure how this essay I'm writing on Borges came to be an essay, but it's starting to actually look like an essay.
