Today, I think, is the senior prank. I say I think because I just got here and there is candy on every desk. Also, there are “watch out for Sirius Black.” Signs all around campus. I wonder if they will be dressed like Harry Potter characters at morning reports. ::fingers crossed::. (Update: We are totally having a Harry Potter themed day with Quidditch and all. The music is playing in the halls. do do, do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do)
Two things that I have found different about girls’ school vs co-ed.
1) I use almost no classroom management skills. The peer pressure of everyone else behaving is enough. Also, they want to make me happy. So, yay! Well behaved people!
2) There are so many feelings. ALL THE TIME. I understand that there are feelings at co-ed schools, too but seriously. All the feelings, all the time. Part of this also come from being at a boarding school where for some (definitely not all) I am their adult contact for the day which often means stopping whatever I am doing and listening. This is a skill I absolutely did not have before I came here. Listening is hard, guys. It takes a lot of practice. This could be a whole other post. Maybe it will be.
Alright, I’m off.
