I wish I had been able to go somewhere and just relax for spring break, but if I’m going to be truthful, I enjoyed all of the preparations I did this week for my drama club production. At least with this, there will be the reward of satisfaction for a job well done, as opposed to a sunburn. Besides, the weather has been kind of crappy this week. The first part of the week was cold, and the last part of the week was rainy. Therefore, the beach would not have been much fun. It doesn’t mean I won’t bitch and complain because I was working instead of laying out on the beach, but overall, I really enjoyed what I did this week.
The drama club will be something I will miss if I leave my current job at the end of this year, but I will only be leaving if I get hired at one of two positions I am currently applying for and am fairly hopeful about. Job applications are always a wait and see game, but it’s a little easier to do when you have a job already, no matter how little it pays.
Also, for teachers the most important part of spring break is being away from the students for a week. At this time each year, we are as tired of the students as they are of us. We need a week to recuperate before the mad rush to the end of the school year, which is just seven weeks away.
