Today I am grateful for:

  1. My job. Yes, it was exhausting and yes I’m a bit bitter to be one of the few asked back but damn am I lucky to work somewhere that takes care of their employees as much as this school district has. I’m not sure I’ll ever leave now. I couldn’t take the risk with knowing what I know now.
  2. My friends. It’s been so long since I’ve seen them and what interaction we can have is quite unsatisfying but seeing them in person gives me hope that some day, and maybe even soon, we might be able to do more together.
  3. My headphones, which give me a means of mental escape when I am overwhelmed or irritated. I like my coworkers, but I’m not always sure I like them for who they are or for their proxy to me. Sometimes I need to get away before I find myself sucked into their everyday dramas.
