Today I'm angry, and I don't even know why.
It's not like I didn't get enough sleep. I was asleep by 9 last night!
It's not really my students. For the most part I like them, they seem like a nice bunch of people. Sure, I don't like all the whining--can I have more time for my test?--but that just stirred up the anger, it wasn't the cause of it.
Our idiot of a president is probably going to explain tonight why we have to fight IS/ISIL/ISIS in Iraq and/or Syria, but will conveniently leave out that he is the reason we left Iraq early (President Bush explained what would happen if we did that) and he'll also leave out why it was so important for us to intervene in Egypt and Libya but not in Syria. That brings my anger to a boil, but what causes the anger in the first place?
Getting 10 more students didn't help. Having to go back to school tonight (for Back To School Night!) isn't the cause.
I have a friend who sometimes, for no apparent reason, goes into what he calls a "blue funk". He just feels somewhat depressed, and after a day or two, he feels fine again. Maybe instead of getting depressed I just get angry. I don't know.
Whatever it is, I sure don't like it.
