This series of texts happened this weekend:
Ingrid is amazing but you can make yourself real sad listening to her. The bff was listening to “The Chain” which is amazing and also sob-inducing. Me, I’ve been singing “Be Okay” a slightly less sad but equally good song. The chorus is simple:
I just want to be okay, be okay, be okay
I just want to be okay today
It’s an upbeat song, covering chunks of sadness. There’s something about it that reads hopeful to me and that makes me feel better.
This post makes no sense. Anyway, just so you know, I am actually okay and will continue to get better. 🙂
Personal Stuffs: Lots of apartment cleaning, cooking, and living like a grown person.
Classroom Stuffs: I missed a lot last week for sick and for PD but I got a lot out of the PD so that felt good.
Personal Change: I still haven’t been to gym. Get it together, Schwartz.
Classroom Change: At the PD last week the lady running it used the term “productive hurrying” I want to get better at that this week.
Reading: I just finished Bad Feminist and GOD I loved it. I love Roxane Gay. I think we should be friends. Maybe I’ll go visit Nicky and creep on her.
Watching: I watched Broadchurch this weekend and well holy eff. You must watch.
Your assigned reading: This is one week of harassment on twitter. ONE WEEK.
1 thought on “Week 4. Ingrid.”
The word ‘productive’ seems to be gaining popularity. I speak to teachers about their students struggling with math but it must be a ‘productive struggle’. We learn a lot through productive struggle.
Now I have to think about productive hurrying!
