Well, winter camp time is done, the break from Christmas until February is over, and we have now entered the final two week period of the second semester.
This is a tricky time to manage mostly because the kids (especially grade sixers who are anticipating the start of middle school in a month’s time) give no more fucks about being in class. Then again, the same can be said for the teachers. It has been unofficially declared “movie time” since all final exams are finished and there’s no reason for being in school except for the government wants round-the-year education.
Lucky for me, I’m deskwarming 75% of this and next week. Thus I’ve been able to wedge my desk chair between the radiator and a cupboard and catch up on some long-put-off reading whilst trying not to succumb to the sleepy waves of heat engulfing me. (So far I’ve fallen asleep twice on the radiator and only woke up the second time because my face was burning).
I’m just hanging in there until a week and a half from now when Ricky and I take off for Vietnam and Cambodia. My newsfeed is plastered with vacation photos from all my fellow coworkers and I feel the wanderlust itching at my feet.
