Well, that was a doozy of a week back from vacation!
Tuesday, I caught up on emails, helped at the front desk, ran my club, and felt relatively back in the swing of things.
Wednesday, I had a meeting about hiring a work-study in our film program, led a field trip of forty kids under 10 to a rollerskating rink and took five teens to see Finding Neverland, the new musical at A.R.T.
Thursday, I covered the morning teen program, ran two clubs, and prepped for today.
Today, I helped run a trivia rotation during our End of Summer Extravaganza, covered the front desk, helped film the Music Showcase, and prepped our Awards Ceremony for the end of the day. I sat down for maybe 30 minutes all day.
Now, of course, I have a little cold and I'm going to bed early.
But Summer 2014 is over.
7-year-old boy, sobbing about not being able to buy a drink at the rollerskating rink: There's no hope for me!
Same boy, whining because he was bored: I'm not having any fun!
Me: Well, you should have brought money to play the arcade games.
Boy: I'm poor!
10-year-old boy, on the bus from the rollerskating field trip: He's bothering me! He said I need to get butt surgery!
Me, to a 14-year-old boy, whose nicknamed Junito: What's Junito mean?
Boy: I don't know!
Teen girl, after I looked it up, laughing: It means "a very short man with a very large penis!"
Boy: ...I'm short.
