For those of you with lives not addicted to Facebook, you can have a status next to your photo that you can update. Until about 3 days ago it was "Kate is..." and then you'd add what you were doing. It gets really fun if you get very elaborate and really get into talking about yourself in the third person.
I love talking with all kinds of friends I've made over the years--from current coworkers to elementary school friends. It's fun and it doesn't take much effort. It's mostly very light. So... my status updates. I don't lie, but I don't share everything for numerous reasons. Here are some things I would love to say, but won't.
...is tired of determining if kids are high or just goofy and stupid.
...is going to unfriend you if you don't quit SuperPoking her 20 times a day
...is mystified by how Park Place Hospital has her information from c. 2004
...wants her physical and mental health to be stable
...wishes her colleagues/assistant principals/etc. would grow some um, guts and stand up to the kids
...has so little patience she just wants to scream at everyone
...fell asleep in class. In the front of the room. Twice.
...hasn't cleaned her house in weeks
...is too tired to read
...is uneasy being alone with certain students and can't shoo them out fast enough. Begone creepy child.
So much for my (mostly) true confessions. What else? What would you love to share with the world... but not?
