Quite Contrary

What's today? Wednesday? How is it not Friday yet? What's happening here? Time is simultaneously speeding up and stopping completely. Seriously, I just had this thought a few minutes ago: "How can Christmas only be 5 days away?!", immediately followed by "I can't believe how much this week is dragging!"

Those types of thoughts seem to be pretty indicative of my life. For example, one day I'll think, "Thank goodness nobody's called me today, I hate talking on the telephone." Then the next day I'm disproportionately upset that I haven't heard from anyone in days because of course that must mean that no one loves me anymore.

Or I'll be telling people how much I love my job, then complain to Chris for a solid 45 minutes about waking up at the crack of dawn, how wretched the children are, and how ridiculous the education system is right now.

Basically, I'm a big Christmas sack of Contradictions the past few weeks. Anyway, what was I talking about earlier? Oh yeah, vacation. (Did I mention that in addition to being contradictory I also currently have the attention span of a 6th grader on a highball of Ritalin, Red Bull, and cocaine?) So- vacation. I just have to make it through Thursday and Friday and I'm all set. I've even told my two classes that I'll bring in Guitar Hero for them to play, or I can set up the DDR and let them go to town. Fun for one and all! (Especially me, when I school them in War Pigs!) Two more days of shelving books, doling out book recommendations, and explaining the differences between Venn diagrams and Boolean operators. Two more days of holiday luncheons/breakfasts/snacks from faculty/staff/parents/kids. In short, two more days of madness.

...Almost... There... Must... Hold... On...

I usually only get to see my boyfriend on the weekends, so when he came to visit last night, it completely threw me off balance. On one hand, my mind thought it was Friday and hence no more work, but on the other hand I was freaking out about all the things I haven't got done for the holiday yet. Eventually I realized that it was only Tuesday. Damn.
