I'd be lying if I said that, at less-than-a-month-shy-of-26, this was my first quarter life crisis. I'm probably on about three or four. At least.
The Problem: I'm 3 months away from my Master's in education and I don't want to be a teacher. Or maybe I do, but not today. Today I just want to do something fun and pretty. Something that won't leave me feeling totally defeated and drained at the end of the week. Something that, at the very least, I don't dread.
The Cause: I had my first observation today. And my supervisor talked down to me and told me I had it All Wrong and that I need to spend the weekend Making It Right. I'm not saying that I felt awesome about student teaching before this, because I didn't. But I was making it. Now I just want to throw in the towel, 2009-style.
The Solution: To be honest, I'm not really sure. My short-term solution is to eat Doritos and watch last night's Vampire Diaries in bed. Hopefully I'll wake up tomorrow with my game face on and just do the damn thing. Or maybe I'll need to eat croutons and watch Easy A in bed. idk, idk.
Tell me about your impending, current, or past quarter life crisis. Any advice for those of us in the thick of it?
