I am mad at myself. I missed the eclipse. A couple of weeks ago, one of my students, who I’ll call Man-Man, was interested in learning about eclipses, so during IWT when the other students were busy doing other things, I took some time with him to look it up. He was so excited. That is why I made sure to tell him about the eclipse at 5:45 p.m. P.S.T.
I told him to think good thoughts about it not raining, because if it rained, there would be no way of seeing the eclipse. Well, the weather held up and the eclipse was viewable (is that a word?). The only thing is that I slept through the whole thing. I spent two hours after work rearranging my class and was absolutely exhausted, so I went home and took a nap.
Oh well. I only have three years until it happens again. C’est la vie. There’s nothing I can do about it now. Until next time people!
