I was up late grading papers and doing paperwork.  I got a late start because I have had a headache this weekend.  The headache do seem to be coming once a week, and lasting about 48 hours, and not once a day and never really stopping, so I guess that is an improvement.  Anyway, tomorrow will be a busy day of grading more papers because I didn’t get finished.  Honestly, the one thing I truly hate about teaching is the grading.  It either gets terribly monotonous, or I get frustrated with student’s lack of ambition.  Yes, the students themselves can sometimes be a handful and dealing with them can be stressful but like all teachers, I live for those moments when you see the lightbulb appear above their heads when they understand something for the first time.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
