just had to share, I love this long weekend stuff. man. I could use more of these. just getting to unwind, and sleep, and forget it all.

that is it.

mr/ms anonymous is right

the comment about sports as a way to get involved. you are quite right. and i am manipulating my athletic talents as a means to meet people and wedge my way into the school social setting.

you see i am fairly capable when it comes to dealing with sports statistics, and i know of very few coaches who will turn down an offer from someone willing to help them out with stats. so i worked with football but didn't really meet anyone. and within the last month have started with basketball, and now i feel like i am slowly but surely finding a social niche.

but at the same time i still question, am i being invited because i am wanted there or because i am around as they make the plans and they feel obligated?

entering the social network

i never realized what a closed group educators are. settling in a new town has led to quite a challenge of finding friends to hang out with outside of school. trying to make my world again, not quite sure where to start. is it through co-workers, or neighbors, or joining a makes life hard to iron out. not sure who to flow ideas off of, who to vent to, or how to talk about something other than education. having no life outside of the school environment is of course an issue on that front. just something that is pressing on the brain. enough.
