i haven't had the time to blog. i'm too exhausted in my free moments to think clearly about my job. and really, this year has been kinda tough. it swirls around me and i have trouble grasping pieces to talk about. i'm afraid this would turn into a mega bitchfest.
i've been pretty disillusioned with the whole education system lately, which says a lot because i've never thought too highly of it. maybe it's the third year blues. i don't know.
so i don't know if i'm going to continue blogging...given my lack of time, my feelings about this year, and my fear of losing my anonymity. really, i fear my voice is empty and hollow in this space, much like its impotence in the world of education.

Oh, boo hiss. You gotta keep blogging. We'll miss you if you don't. Plus, who else are you going to vent to??

Teaching is an occupation where by its nature we are squashed flat. Part of what we do is keep on keepin' on. We have to learn to let the bad stuff roll off and feed on the good stuff.

We're here. We know. Your voice isn't empty and hollow. Don't stop.

I hear your fatigue, distress and frustration. I also understand your concerns about remaining anonymous. Fear of losing your privacy is quite valid. You are the one who has to keep working where you are and don't need complications.

Perhaps you can take off from blogging for a "short" time to gather your thoughts and catch up on things a bit. Then you will be ready to attack the keyboard and choose your words more carefully, and still get your point acrosss.

Blogging is like life in that you have ebbs and flows, times when you are on a mission and times when you need a break. This is your break time. I personally enjoy reading your blog, and look forward to your picking it up again real soon! Hang in there!

I totally hear you. There are times when I wanna throw the whole blogging idea out the window, because I just have too damn many other things to do.

But I try to think of it as therapy. My friends are great, but they get sick of hearing me talk/bitch about my job. Blogging about it gets it off my chest... with the added bonus of other teachers to comment and sympathize.

Hang in there. I look forward to hearing more from you soon!

Well, you could always talk about something like your sexlife if teaching gets old. ;)

I'm sorry you're hitting a rough patch. Maybe it's the time of year. Whatever it is, I hope you know we'll still come around to read whatever you write.
