Q&A, Volume 5

What do you think about the new immigration laws the government is trying to put into effect? What do you think that will do to your classes as a teacher?

I get my news from two sources: the AOL startpage and NPR. And sometimes not NPR, depending on whether or not I’m addicted to some CD. That being said, I don’t know as much about these laws as I should. I have mixed feelings about what I do know, so I’m not going to address this question.

Instead, I would like to talk about how there are now only 21 school days remaining. I know I keep mentioning this, but sadly, it’s just about the only thing I can think about. There’s room in my brain for little else. I grow less patient with my students by the day. I’ve started speaking to colleagues through clenched teeth. I find myself wondering if anyone would miss me if I crawled under my desk. But don’t worry, I’m only like this during the month of May. Come June I’ll be back to my old self. I’ll have original thoughts and clever ideas. Meanwhile I’m still here (read: under a quilt on the couch watching “Everybody Loves Raymond” reruns), and there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

Am I your favorite student ever? Why or why not.

No.*

To repeat a question, what ARE you doing this summer? Are you working somewhere and if yes, where? Are you going to hang out with me?

This summer I plan to lie around in my pool** and eat banana popcicles and read. As for working, are you kidding? Have you ever known me to work during the summer? Ha. Haha. Unless you consider cutting the grass and planting things and transporting books from the library to my screened porch, HECK NO. No work for me. If you are interested in any of these activities then sure, I’ll hang out with you.

*See, now this is the kind of answer I normally get to these kinds of questions. No one EVER answers the “why or why not” part. But I have already answered this question. See?

**I buy an inflatable baby pool every summer and set it up on my deck. There is no cozier place to read. I know you can’t wait to see a picture of that!

  1. Well I’m not so much sure about the banana popsicles… I like strawberry, but I have many books I would like to read over the summer so maybe we can hang by the pool together one day. I know I will be dieing to get out of my house. Hey guess what may newest major is…. ready?!?!…… ENGLISH!!! haha

  2. I am very interested in planting things.. and reading.. and laughing at you (although I admit, it is a very good idea)/taking pictures of you in a baby pool. Let’s hang out.
