Yesterday was a difficult day. As with most jobs, teaching has its good days and its bad days. As a long-term sub, I feel that many times I experience more of the bad days than the good... but that just comes with the territory.
Many things went wrong yesterday and, overall, it was just "one of those days" and nothing really stands out as being "the worst part".
The one thing that really bothered me though wasn't really an event but more a conversation. I kept hearing people talking and though I will not say what they said or any of that, I will say that it was very hard for me to hold my tongue. I know that most people don't have it great right now. I have really had my eyes opened to how good I have it- and that says a lot... but it still just makes me mad when people say stuff that makes me want to say, "at least you have a job. You have a paycheck. You know how you will survive next month. I don't." I mean, don't get me wrong, it's not like we will be homeless or not be able to eat. We are truly very lucky when compared to some... and I really don't like comparing myself to others because I know that comparing one situation to another is like comparing apples to oranges... it's just not the same thing. It's just so hard to hold my tongue sometimes.
You know what they say though, "make your words as sweet as honey because tomorrow you may have to eat them." I try so hard to make 'em sweet. ;)
