I’ve been talking to people at work.
I know, right? That’s not at all the way I normally do things, but I’ve decided to really give the socializing with adults thing a try. I kind of started at it last year, because I was unhappy enough to do things about it.
This year, I think I should just really give it a chance. I’m not at all unhappy. My schedule and situation improved exponentially over the summer, but I still think I should give it my all.
Problem: I’m realizing that teachers sometimes (and probably people in general) are only glad to talk to me when I’m in agreement with them. When things suck, misery loves company. However, I don’t think things suck right now, and it’s starting to feel like I’m not as appreciated as I was when I joined the fight for teacher autonomy. Now, I’m just Katie.
Writing. Reading. Running. Painting. Katie.
Is there such a thing as a foul-weather friend?
