IN THIS CORNER, me. On a scanty three hours of sleep after an attack of ADHD brain, wearing a disappointingly plain outfit and equipped with an ipod.
IN ALL OTHER CORNERS, my classroom. Left in the disaster state I thought appropriate Saturday.
I'm staying until it's done and hoping to stroll out of school by 8pm.
I ended my Adderall holiday today by taking half of my old morning dose. That should partially hone dulled brain. Since ADHD was responsible for dulling it in the first place, I think it's a fair trade.
I have relatively good coping strategies for getting by with a lack of executive functioning. I also am of the school of thought that believes there are positives to ADHD: it can make you quick on your feet, willing to try new things and intensely creative. I think I'm more accepting of learning needs in the classroom, too, because I know there are environments in which I cannot be successful. That said, I really love Hyperbole and a Half and somewhat identify with this.
In other news, here is the dress that the USPS finally saw fit to deliver. Providing that weather reports hold, I'll be pairing it a turtleneck shell as a first week of school ensemble. I also have a kicky Byron Lars suit and a Fendi sundress for first week looks. Today, however, it's going to be a scruffy day. I may even wear pants.
In further other news, I have a Resident again this year - hooray! I also have a document outlining my responsibilities and the program's early goals to read. I am looking forward to perusing it since it should help me be a better mentor for my Resident.
ETA, 7:05 PM: Barring about an hour's worth of scrap-collecting, I'm done. The new set up rocks my socks, too.
