but this morning when I was huddled on my couch while it was still dark, i was thinking about last spring when Nika was sick and I had to get up early to forcefeed him for weeks and would watch CNN's oil spill coverage. For about a month I was the most informed current events source in my whole school.
also i swear to god if i see this anti-union ad about how teachers make a trillion dollars and don't care about students, I am going to flip the fuck out. don't you think if it was such an easy gig, everybody would do it? nobody is a teacher for the money, trust me. ugh.
