If I can get to the weekend then it will all be ok.
Coffee will help.
Alcohol will not help, which is a shame because I really feel like a nice cold beer right now. Or a nice glass of Chateau Neuf du Pape.
Or that really cheap cider that I got drunk on that time when I was sixteen.
But coffee will do.
As long as it’s good coffee.
I’ve really become a coffee snob and it’s making me quite antisocial at work. One of the few occasions teachers get to talk to other adults is break times and lunchtimes when we normally head to a communal staff area and drink hot beverages together.
I don’t do this anymore though, because the standard of the coffee is just so bad that I’ve started bringing in my own in a thermos.
It’s much nicer, but without the need to go looking for a kettle and thus other adult contact, I tend to just hide in my classroom.
Does it say something about me as a person that I value coffee over social interaction?
Because I absolutely stand by that position.
