much needed update

a multiple part, sport-center high lights style recap-- mini-titles included

so aparently one of the things that the school system i teach for does is rotate the schools its problem students attend. that is right, rather than help these kids they just push them from one school to another one. my convicted felon transfered out recently. and i think i got 2 from other schools.

that is right, he came back yesterday, and what an effing crock. i was working very hard at not being the resident evil teacher (i wanted to). i was also working very hard at not being accusatory (felt like i could). other students have said that this boy denies stealing things from my class because i am his favorite teacher, i am not sure how i feel about that, or what i think. i am still insulted. i still want someone to apologize. i still hate teaching that class.

so i learned recently how they handle basketball in the south, and i experienced it last night. so, where i come from, if the boys are away, the girls are home. not so down here, no no, that would be too smart/efficient/easy. no, down here, when one team travels, they both do, when one team is home they all are. that is right all of them boys, girls, varsity, jv. so that means a total of 4 games in one place. that means that the games start at 4pm and don't end until quite nearly 11pm, at which point the kids have to change, clean their lockerrooms, and get settled on the bus, and then drive home. since i will be traveling with the team, this means i wait for the kids, ride the bus with them back to school, get things settled back at the school and then drive home. i (being a dumb ass) forgot to pack food, so got home at midnight and had to decide: food then sleep, or just go to bed (as it waas then 3 hours past my bedtime and leaving me with only 4 hours of sleep to be had). i opted for the sleep.

and now, i have to opt for makeup and lunch packing. later y'all
(oh, and for those of you who are asking, i think the final was 2:2, our jv lost (both) and our varsity won)
