School

This week was our first week back at school. I don't understand how four - not even five - school days can exhaust everyone so much. Yesterday (Friday), in the last class of the day, English, we were trudging through Of Mice and Men and the clock was ticking so ominously. You could practically FEEL everyone aching to leave and/or straining to keep their eyes open. I swear I've answered every single "how are you?" query this week with either: "ughhhhh" or "ughhhh, exhausted...". Apart from the obvious very intense exhaustion that every pupil/student experiences after weeks of indulgent sleeping until lunchtime, this week has been quite good. I'm so ridiculously happy that it's the weekend. I think I've discovered that the cure to my non-stop pessimism is school. Because then I get all excited when I have free time and I'm grateful for once. *dances* How is everybody? Anyone else struggling to adapt to being back at school? I think I'll just make some berry tea and read and watch Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Yay!
