“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

i might have to start using capital letters now.

three days ago, i find out i have a half-time job of four tweenage classes, which might last two weeks, and might last a term. i blink. i run around in circles. i find helpful teachers. i plan, i sort. i find term plans and objectives and odd bits of instructions. i freak out, i print out paper and file in folders. i wonder, soft materials technology and information technology, how hard can you be? i can sew. i can use the word processor. i can write html code. but uh, hello katie? it's not just making stuffs or blogging or uploading photos to facebook, it's design technology. i freak out again. i trawl through curriculum documents. i locate maths notes, i grab the egg timer and two brainy puzzles books and think, algebra, i am so thankful i'm starting with you. but science, science? i freak out again, again. i gather folders, texts, ideas, more folders, highlighter pens and more planning. i read around and around in circles. i talk to myself, i photocopy stuffs, i borrow books, i start to mesh new theory with old practice, i take notes, i make notes, i write notes to self. i start work tomorrow.

Congratulations Katie, if anyone can do this, I know you can. The biggest question out there of course is, what will you wear for your first day?? ;)
