|02:35 am - Merry Christmas|
Twis the night before Christmas*, and all through the house
Two creatures are stirring. They are cats.
What with hot sticky air and invisible bugs
Cannot get to sleep, I drink tea from a mug
Awakened by slow jams and loud men who yell
And the screen from the bed-a-room window just fell
Things are falling apart just as things come together
Morning birds chirping in summer night weather
Too hot and too cold, an uncomfortable night
But tomorrow, tomorrow! The end is in sight
Counting minutes awake, need to get to sleep fast.
My first year of teaching, behind me at last!
*figurative Christmas. Christmas of the end of my first year teaching. Tomorrow. Or, today. Today in a few hours. Three hours to be exact, I need to be up and ready to go. Booooo nonsleep. (It rarely happens, but when it does, rhyming is my remedy to insomnia.)
Current Music: MEOW!
Hey there! I became very bored at work and started reading old livejournal entries of mine when bam: I saw the occasional comment from you. So I thought I'd pop in and say hi. Hi!
First year of teaching finished, then? Congratulations. I hope that went well.
