look at me working, what a good teacher-student
sick day uniform: no make-up + oversized sweater + leggings. aww yeah, that's what's up.
sick day also means photographing unexciting things because the boredom kicks in around 2pm (no offense meant towards Henrik's eyeball, of course).
my "get-me-through-3-hour-Tuesday-teacher-class" supplies. I am DEFINITELY that student who reads under the desk or draws until called on, and then lifts her head guiltily while trying to determine what exactly the question just asked of her was.
my teacher-class notes from today. ....the usual.
I feel kind of bad for being that student, but I can't help it. Ever since I was a kid, I was easily distracted and much more concerned with doing things I personally had deemed important. It's not that I don't like learning⎯to the contrary, actually, because I LOVE learning. I just have very poor attention and dislike most typical "academic" activities. For example, note-taking has always been a struggle for me because I have horrendous handwriting. When I take an exorbitant amount of time (like when I'm putting script in a cartoon I'm drawing or something), sure, it looks semi-decent, but that's only because I slowly go letter by letter. Perhaps I have some sort of undiagnosed graphomotor disorder, but whatever the issue is, I really detest taking notes by hand (and mostly unrelated, but when perusing the Google results for bad handwriting I saw this and, well, thank the lord I am not becoming a doctor). I feel a bit like a hypocrite as a teacher, because with my combined attention difficulties, failure to take notes, constant doodling, texting and reading under the desk, and severe procrastination with assignments, I am quite the pain-in-the-ass student. I feel bad! In college I was somehow the angel student, but now I feel myself creeping back to my Leila-Chatti-is-smart-but-never-pays-attention-and-is-so-lazy high school roots. Oh dear. At least there's only one semester left of teacher-class.
Anyways, I am excited that Tuesday is over, because that means it is nearly Wednesday, which means that the slope 'til the weekend is basically downhill. I expect to post more interesting things than pictures of my homework in the upcoming days.
