good news/bad news

let's start with the bad news: today i committed teacher suicide. i cried in front of my students. that is the absolute worst thing that a teacher could do, especially when your students are emotionally disturbed behavior disorder students that have not yet developed the ability to empathize. they angered me. they angered me so much so that tears welled up and then i knew it was downhill from there.

ok, moving on. good news: i won honorable mention for my photo here on the right ---->
"the council." my photo was one of the top 36 out of about 300 photos in the river to well photo competition to raise $ for drilling a well in South Africa. yay South Africans having water! yay winning awards! yay!
