Discipline Update & Freewrite: August 12

This thrush stuff? SUUUCKS. My mouth hurts SO BAD. It just stings and stings. And the magic mouthwash that the doctor gave me yesterday isn't helping all that much. Maybe it's too early but MY GOD how I want this to go away. It's like I can't even THINK about anything else. And I need to be able to think! I only have two more days of pre-plan.

Day and a half, really; my doctor's appointment got changed from this afternoon so it looks like I'm going to miss the entire frickin' morning. I will be super-grumpy if they put more meetings in. OOOo boy will I be grumpy.

I need to figure out how to use iMovie so that I can synch up a photo/text slideshow with music. I think I can do that with something called slideshare? maybe? also but I don't know how to use it and I'm running short on time.

Plus, all I can think about is OW OW OW OW my mouth hurts dammit! It's awful. It makes the thought of taking my meds even WORSE because I just don't want to swallow ANYTHING.

Please, please, please God. PLEASE. Make this go away. It hurts to eat, it hurts to talk, it hurts to smile. And I'm used to smiling a LOT.

Dammit, it even hurts to cry.

One of the other teachers at our dept meeting yesterday mentioned the ning and I was like OH COOL but then last night I had a nightmare about getting outed. Although it wasn't specific to the ning (it was about an ex tracking me down) I think that was what provoked it. I mean, I would looove for the other teachers in my dept to be active on the ning but I also really really like being pseudonymous. So. I don't know.

I am kind of planning to out myself at the NCTE conference because NOW I CAN GO!! Yes, I got permission from the admin. So. Very psyched.

And I'm sure I've met my word count, so bye!


  1. We don't know each other, but I wanted to tell you how much I admire your fighting spirit. I hope the meds work fast to get rid of the thrush and that everything you are going through is better soon and that this year is a good one for you.

  2. Thank you Rho!! :D Believe me, I hope the meds work fast too - this SUCKS. The rest of it I'm dealing with pretty good, but the thrush has gotta go NOW. hahaha!

    Appreciate the warm wishes ^.^
