I turned 4 today!
As a teacher of course.
Time fliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiies, am I right?
It was only about a year ago when I wrote about how awesome it was to be one.
So, 4 years in now, and what can I say about it?
I feel pretty seasoned.
I learned that the less fuck you give, the better your life will be.
I lose my shit less now as I give less fuck.
Even if I do lose it, I'd know how to get it back and get even with kids.
It goes the same with the annoying people/admin at work.
Be nice and get shitted on. Be a bitch, you won't be taking as much shit as you should.
Maybe after 4 years I have turned into this cynical, hard-ass teacher. But hey, that's the only way to survive this profession.
I still love teaching though. You can't trade that satisfaction you get when your kid excels or passes beyond expectation.
And I wouldn't trade it for any profession in the world.
Except for being a paid traveler, a professional partier or anything that involves playing with puppies.
