Here I am. It's currently 1:30 in the morning. Today we had a snow day, and I actually didn't spend it sleeping in, so there's really no good reason why I should be awake. But, here I am. 1:30 in the morning.
There's something to be said about the schedule of a teacher. We spend Monday-Friday waking up early and being "on" all day. Then, the weekend comes and we bum out and relax (at least I do). Then, Sunday night comes and insomnia hits. I'm counting today, Monday, as Sunday because of the snow day. You know what I'm saying right?
Anyway - insomnia. We, as I'm sure many many other people do of many many other jobs, lay here and don't sleep.
It's not that I have too much on my brain about school.
It's not that I'm worried I don't have my lesson plans straight.
It's not that I'm wondering if I made enough copies for 4th period.
It's just that I'm not tired.
So, instead of forcing our eyelids closed, in what seems to be a rather painful experience, we find something else to do. And then all of a sudden, an hour flies by and you're looking at an even later time on the clock, making you really wish you just fell asleep in the first place.
Oh, the struggles of Sunday (Monday) night. Hope you all are having sweet dreams while I'm sitting here, eyes wide open.
