And what the hell is up with these NY state tax returns? It took me 10 minutes to do my federal taxes, and 4 hours so far to work on the NY forms. I came from a state that has no income tax to a tax hell. I do expect a refund, so I plan to persevere. I definitely understand why so many accounting firms headquarter in Manhattan. They're drawn like moths to a flame.

She hit the nail right on the head. At lunch, another teacher turned to me. "It's only 12, it's only Monday, and I'm already exhausted."

Just kill me now, before one of the students does the job. We just learned today that a loaded 45 was brought into our school last week by a student. The really amusing part of the story is that under this new 'No child left behind' law, until we get his witness statement, we are required to allow him to return to the school, and we still have to figure out a way to provide him with an education.

What a weekend. Not a lot of sleep, with absolutely no sex for an excuse. I did bunches o' work, and I'm struggling to keep my eyes open. Michael Lopez moved to San Francisco, I'm going to miss him a lot. I worked on a lot of furniture in the loft, did lesson plans, and moved furniture at Michael's. Time for bed.
