interrogated about it. My mood earlier was much lower. Had some uplifting conversations with my housemate and phonecall with Dad and boyfriend so feeling a good deal better now. I dont' need this negativity in my life, though. I am not sure if this
is my forever school.
Just to clarify - the feeling fat and the conversation with parent were two completely separate issues! The parent did not comment on my weight at all, only about my 'teaching skills' as she put it.
That will happen at any school. People are cruel and hurtful out of selfishness and their own inability to parent. I guess you have to get used to it, which is really sad to say. It's more about that person than about you and your skills!
highly praised by one of the parents and informed that I must be doing something right to have gained her child's respect and have his attitude to class change. 🙂
That last part, the good news part, is about a third year student. We had their parent-teacher meeting today. 🙂
(Also, managed my Monday/things fell into place much better than I anticipated. Today was a good day. I was in high spirits all day. 😁👌🏽)
I want one! I think
Feeling well rested and did a lot of housework though. 👍🏾
about 2am. The guy on duty was really nice. I only paid €67 for to stay last night (as it was past midnight) and tonight and breakfast included both mornings. It is quite a luxurious hotel. There is a castle and lovely grounds and good spa deals.
I am going to make the most of the opportunity to relax, enjoy some privacy, get some time outdoors and maybe even get a nice massage and some time in the leisure centre.
Ooo nice. Unexpected treat! Enjoy!
Thanks all. I got a cancellation slot for a massage. It was lovely. The best massage I ever received actually. I can move my whole upper body with much more ease now. 🙂
earlier than the date they gave me.
I feel so tired but I'm also really wired and feel like I won't sleep if I try. I have written in my diary a bit but thoughts are still floating around. Think I will try a meditation and to book in for yoga this week or next week.
A weekly commitment of a class would be a good way for me to prioritise my health.
quantifiable goals for myself. I am going to aim for my Dad's party which is in a month's time as my first milestone and the Christmas party on 20th December as the second. I want to feel happier and healthier in my skin and body.
I can so relate. We can do this!
I AM IN!
tired so I don't really want to get up out of bed, go downstairs to make breakfast. I think I will though as the hunger pangs are quite strong. I think I will also book/decide on a yoga place. I have found two studios near me. 🙂
feeling or what I want (to do). I wrote in my diary a little bit. But sometimes, when I feel like this I find it difficult to express my thoughts/emotions (whether orally/in written format etc.). Sleepy. Might try and book a yoga class for tomorrow
My muscles are tense and sore so I want to work them out a bit and release the tension.
Thanks for hugs 😁
Nobody got over 70. It was a standard test that other classes did too. I am worried that management will look at the results, compare them to other teachers and judge my ability based off of them. 😬 Also, I am a day late suitting them Running late
again this morning.
Sorry about the scores. I know those are frustrating to deal with. Hope you're feeling better! ❤️
Thanks for all the hugs all. Thanks Manda. I am really tired but I think I have bypassed getting an infection/getting sick. So overall, better I guess. 🙂
but can't sleep . . . Didn't eat much today . . . Think I will try to do a meditation and see if that helps. I feel like delving into some of the thoughts on my mind may only make things worse.
Thanks for hugs pandas x
very busy and the noise and crowds are bothering me.
swings. Have been irritable with others and feel a bit guilty about that but it's the best I can do right now.
Personality Disorder. I feel relieved to feel like I can figure out the tortuous elements of my life and make sense of my suffering. Also, to hope that I could get some form of suitable treatment. On the other hand, there is a sense of sadness over
the fact that I will have to live with this for the rest of my life, not curable but manageable. The good news is, I can finally start to manage it better now.
So glad you have a real idea of what this is so they can place a course of treatment that will really help. It may be sad to have to live with it, but many people have diseases. This is no different than celiac or crohns. We manage what we can manage
and get on with life.
I'm so happy for you, KT! I've got a close friend with Borderline, and I feel like my late father had it. If you are willing to do therapy they say quality of life improves a lot. Plus, it sometimes goes away after 40 ( so I've read somewhere).
A big well done to you! It's hard to get a diagnosis. I got mine at 33 and then another one on top of it (Bipolar II and PTSD). It's 3 years later and my life has never been better. Though it's still tough sometimes!
the window and in the corner of the ceiling. There is mould all over the blind which I think is broken. I have been cleaning since I got there but I feel so icky in there. I feel like I have made a big mistake.
I am trying to talk myself down from the rising panic, remind myself the house is nice overall and that I can deal with this. Meanwhile, I have not done any prep for school next week. So I am feeling kind of overwhelmed. I guess he anxiety was
building yesterday and over the weekend. And I have been finding it a little bit difficult to adjust to new job. I feel as bit like I don't know where to start.
collaborative which is fantastic. They shared a lot of resources with me already and I am sharing some resources with them too. It is a very young staff as well, so hopefully I will make some good friends. :D I am conscious of making a good
impression on management so that my contract will be renewed next year so I plan on ticking all of the boxes: punctuality regarding arrvial at classes and submission of comments for reports, independence regarding classroom management, carrying out
extra-curricular activities. As far as I can see, those are the most transparent measures they could use to assess your performance, apart from students' results perhaps. Of course, I also plan to be better prepared and organised and also a little
more detached from my students. For my own sake as well as for theirs. I got too emotional over certain things last year so I need to change that. :) . . . Dad is doing well with treatment for clot. He only has 3 chemo sessions left after receiving
over 150 doses over the last 3 years. My sister is being put on blood thinners for life after getting a clot recently too actually. My parents have been losing weight and so have I and my siblings. Things are going marvellously with my boyfriend.
We have been seeing each other for 4 months now. There have been no red flags. He is sweet, kind, caring, funny, patient and tolerant of some of my traits which other people finding annoying (I'm mainly thinking of how I stop to take photos).
He looks out for me and for my wellbeing. He's encouraging, level-headed. He is quite good at keeping me focused when I get distracted or go into things in too much detail and he is good at grounding me or reminding me of the bigger picture too.
We have a lot of fun together and have compatible senses of humour. Even though we do not share the exact same interests, we both show an interest in the other's hobbies and join in to spend time with/learn about each other. :D It has all been very
smooth and easy.
Sounds like a very positive stage. Very happy for you
Thanks Nixiblu and Jeff and Natalie for hugs. 🤗
