He’s trying hard to forget what is hard to remember?

Finals are over. Not my finals (not that I had any), but correcting well over 120 student finals. If you’ve got any questions over To Kill a Mockingbird or Harold and Maude now would be the best time to get answers.

Speaking of school, it is amazing how some kids are boundlessly cruel. The effort that they put forth into torturing other students is endless. I just wish that some of those kids could have put at least a fraction of their harassment energy into their school energy–maybe then I wouldn’t have to watch them cry when they find out they aren’t going to pass.

Well, I’m done at Thurston High School. Today is my last day, I’m going to return all of the books I have, eat a little BBQ in their courtyard and then punish the student who inspired the previous rant. I thought it was especially crafty of me to get her to come into school on the first day of summer. and the day after her birthday. This is why you shouldn’t be cruel.
