No, I did not take this picture from my current window, it s picture my brother took from the window of my old apartment in Montreal. I put it here just because it looks summery enough and because I miss Montreal (I hope I don't sound like a broken record).
I am on holiday today, for a week. I am glad, it was time, work was getting to me. I think I sometimes get slightly bored out. My job is very good on long term, for my future career, but it is not exactly a challenging one. I also have the impression that I often get bossed around by teachers who might have experience working in a school, but do not have my education. I like most of my colleagues (some I even admire), but a few (very few) of them just are getting to me these days, more than the students ever could. They do nothing to get angry or to declare open war, it is just the dismissive attitude and overall coldness. The worst thing is that I don't know why they have this attitude and what I could have done (or not done) to offend them. I know I am not the only teacher to get this treatment, so I should not take it personally. It can still spoil my day. Nevertheless, I work in a time where unemployment is high, so I am not complaining. There is always time for anger later.
Anyway, I am on holidays, so I should be happy. It is beautiful outside and summer seems to be here at last. I woke up at 7:45 this morning. I have never been a morning person, I am more of a night owl. Years at university made me spend many sleepless nights trying to finish a paper or my thesis. I also find night to be the best time to read. But my new job turned my cycle upside down and I now wake up early even at weekends. So I have to learn to appreciate daytime for longer. It makes sense, as morning comes early and evening arrives late.
