evening ambitions

My goal for this evening is to be in bed by 9:30. Today was the first day I felt like crying. It had nothing to do with my students, they are improving on a daily basis. It had nothing to do with the hour bus rides. It had nothing to do with the long (sometimes pointless) sessions.

I am tired. I have no housing for the year. I am leaving this Sunday and will not be back in Mississippi until Aug.1 . They said not to worry about housing but here we are with less than a month before school starts and so many of us placed in Jackson are still homeless (or should I say lease-less).

Sunday was my 26th birthday. It was completely uneventful. I will make up for it next week in Nola.

My plan to stay sane this week – film my “End of Institute” interviews and have the video edited and posted by Friday.

Here’s to the last week of Institute!!! Cheers!

Until next time.
