Thanksgiving Break, Yearbook & Letting It Be

In a few hours, Thanksgiving break will be gone. Sadly, the three bags of stuff I bought home won't be.

Some how, some way, some day I wish I could wave a magic wand or twitch my nose like Samantha in Bewitched and be done with it all--the bags of stuff that is.

At least I managed to sort through most of the disaster I refer to as "yearbook."  I even met with my yearbook rep over Thanksgiving Break to discuss yearbook-related stuff. I believe if the pilgrims had to do that, they would have skedaddled right on out of Plymouth Rock as speedy quick as the ol' Mayflower could sail. (No, silly, the pilgrims wouldn't have skedaddled because of my yearbook rep, who really is a rather nice guy, but because of yearbook stuff in general.)

I guess only a yearbook adviser would truly understand my angst.

In order to calm myself in these last few hours before the end of break, I thought I would (1) eat a little bit of chocolate and (2) drink some green tea. I buy the kind of tea that contains nifty little philosophical ditties. The one for this evening said, "The best way of life is to be, simply be."

Really?

Obviously, the writer of that little cleverness was never a journalism adviser.

Or a teacher.

Could be fun though. Maybe tomorrow when I go to class, I'll just let things "be."

Yeah, let's see how well that one works for me.

I had 2500 underclass photos to look at over break. I did it - about 500 at a time. Took about 12 hours total, but broken up into 5 days it went fairly easy.

That's really the key, isn't it?--to break it up in smaller pieces. But no matter how you do it, it still eats up huge chunks of time. Time I'd rather spend doing something else over break.
I'm still searching for a kid who may be missing from the photo proofs (He thinks he got his picture made.) Someone else's picture is in his place. Sometimes it's like searching for a needle in a haystack :-(

I just thought I'd let you know that I now have an "emergency chocolate drawer" in Room 215. It had to happen sometime, correctamundo? And I'm starting my New Year's resolutions early. I promise to hang out here more often, okie dokie?
