From the teaching front line...

This morning I had one class, for one hour, in which:

~ The teacher had been given the wrong schedule and wasn't expecting me (but very graciously rearranged his plans);

~ I kept moving around the table where the kids were working on their experiments to get away from the poop smell, but there was more than one kid who smelled that way;

~ Not to mention it's stupid hot today so they all smell bad in a different way;

~ The kids were extra loud and kept wandering away from the table randomly;

~ The teachers sat on the sofa 5 feet away from the table and talked loudly (probably because the kids were so loud, but dude, seriously, you don't have to be that close, there's 8 of them and you know I can handle them as I've been teaching classes in this venue, with you as the lead teacher, for 5 years) about Marvel movies. I had to fight both the volume of their conversation and the urge to join in their conversation.

I came home for lunch with a headache, ugh. Have to go back in a few minutes and teach the younger group, who usually take their cues from the older kids.

Then I'm going to come home, take a shower, and possibly nap. Screw the to-do list. It's going to hit 99 if the forecast is right, and the little vampires have sucked out all my motivation.

Dear GenEx Writer,

Hello, and thank you for signing up to write at least one of these amazing relationships! This is my first time writing for this exchange, and I'm excited to see what comes out of it. Gen fics were my gateway drug into fandom and I still love stories about platonic friendships. I'm about to go into a lot of detail, because that's the way I am, but please don't let that intimidate you. I am very flexible about everything but my DNWs; feel free to ignore most of this if you already have an idea you're excited about writing. Write something you love spending time with, and I'm sure I'll adore it, too.

Thank you again for writing for me, and I hope you have a great experience!
