As we approach the last several days before exams, I think one little episode best encapsulates this year for me:
Several weeks ago, I checked out the school credit card from our banker in my capacity as a student council advisor. I left the office and then had one of those discombobulated moments: why had I requested this credit card? What did I need it for? Usually I would know, but this time I honestly couldn’t remember and had to look it up.
Was it for the Prom? Or for Teacher Appreciation Week? Or for Senior Awards Night? Or for the Senior Picnic? I was involved in preparing all four of those events at once, and it made me a little dizzy.
This has been the most fulfilling and satisfying year of my career, but I’m still looking forward to the end in a few weeks. I’m pretty tired.
