we_protect_each_other: king of knights & king of heroes (Default)
I cannot believe it's only Tuesday. This has been one of the longest weeks ever. This is vague enough that I won't lock it, but in case you missed it last time, rambly somewhat-specifics about teaching will be access-locked because I want to be sufficiently discreet even when vague-blogging about it.

I worked on my classroom until two hours after we were technically allowed to go home. I know that's kind of going to just happen as a teacher but getting off the summer doldrums while it's still so hot is kind of a shock. I'm pretty happy but exhausted all the time.

I also keep having dreams lately about parent death. Both of my parents are still alive and I have decent relationships with them. But I keep having these dreams where it's like I realize belatedly that I am in a stage in my life where they have already been gone for a while and have these sort of flashback dreams about what happened to bridge the gap between having both of them here to having one or both of them gone. It's really disturbing and eerie, because they're nightmares of a slow-burn kind. I accept that, if nature takes its course, I will one day lose my parents, but this is just a weird, new recurring theme in dreams for me.

my thread here

Ego, maybe, but also just saying that a) I write and b) you could make a thread too if you have friends who might do it!
