...I got back in Mrs. N's good graces. She hasn't talked to me pretty much since September. I don't know why she stopped talking to me in the first place. She's the kind of person who will get offended and then not tell you and pout and not talk to you anymore. Very passive agressive. But then she brought me something today and I asked her how her Christmas was and I got an earful of gossip about her family. Super.
...I've become part of the in-crowd with my principal. Not sure how I feel about this. I don't really like the idea of an in crowd in the first place and therefore want nothing to do with it. Actually I'm a little nervous. See, my principal plays favorites. He's a great principal, he just has his favorites. And those favorites get to do everything. They go to Washington D.C. to speak at conferences, they get special awards that he makes up himself, they are put on special teams that present things to the district, he jokes around with them, etc. So today one of his favorites tells me that he wants me to come to a special meeting about the revered TAKS test coming up in March. I've never been invited to do anything with TAKS except sub for another teacher (one of his favorites) while she did TAKS stuff. It's very exclusive.
...I think I missed the special TAKS meeting. I thought Ms. Favorite said it was tomorrow after school but then today I saw all the other favorites walking down the hall talking and laughing. I think I just got kicked right out of the Favorites Club without even knowing it. It must be because I'm not keeping any of my New Year's Resolutions.
