That's how I would describe this blog. What happened to me? Back around the time I went to BlogHer '08, and for a couple months after that, I felt like I'd hit my stride. I had good readership, good comment levels, great discussions happening, etc. And then, it's like, something happened that tossed it all down the toilet. And now? This blog sucks.
What is it? What happened to me? What happened to this blog?
Oh, that's right, I became a teacher and my life as I know it completely changed. Because I have never worked so hard in my life, and it's sucking the life out of me some days. Like today, for example. I had a really tough class this afternoon, and I felt, well, I felt attacked by my students. I felt like all they were doing was telling me how I am doing badly as a teacher, whether or not that's what they actually meant. Fortunately, I had some students standing up for me too, but still, by the end of the class, I was ready to cry. Maybe it sounds cliche, but sometimes I think they just don't understand how hard I am working and how much I am genuinely trying to serve them with my work.
At any rate, that wasn't where I meant to go when I started this post, but there I went anyway. Basically, this blog is lame these days, and I'm feeling a bit failure-esque tonight, both as a teacher and a blogger.
Tell me a joke or something?
