could this have been an actual good day at school?

it's pretty amazing that 1) i was able to rehearse all three of my bands without too much drama, and 2) BOTH... yes both of my choirs sang today and are starting to come around. this doesn't seem like a big deal to most people, but to get through a day without someone telling me to fuck off (among other things) for making them sit up, play an instrument, and work in a team (and not chew gum while playing a damn trumpet! ahhhh!) is golden. my principal even came in today and sat in for about 10 minutes. my students didn't act too much differently (not too much respect for authority in my school- most kids there don't have parents that set rules or exert any sort of control over their children), but they were engaged and all that wonderful educational bullshit, and she (principal) told me that i was AMAZING while she walked out. that was cool. i'm starting from scratch with this music program and it's so hard.

now my next issue to tackle in my boring life is getting my ass to the gym after school. the thing that's been keeping me from doing that is exhaustion from the day, not to mention the fact that i have no good shoes to wear to work and walk in (only heels, which do NOT bode well with my 1.5 mile hike to and from work) so my feet hurt ridiculously bad when i get home. i need to go though. nothing i own fits me and i hate that i want to take a nap as soon as i make it up 4 flights of stairs to my apt all the time.

so i guess it's time for me to burn some cds for school. oh the fun. and maybe i'll have the energy to stay up past 10pm for once.

here's a picture of richmond i took while home... i'm glad to be back in brooklyn, but i miss the quiet and the non-pavement (otherwise known as nature i suppose).
