Well, first of all, I have to thank all of you for your book suggestions. I didn’t get to pick a new book today but I will definitely get one this weekend. And now I have so many choices, I’m so excited!

20 days left of classes. Wow. Today I had to deal with this: one of my students, in the middle of our test, started complaining of a headache. It happens, he didn’t look like he felt well, so I sent him to the nurse after the test was over. His mom came to pick him up, okay no problem.

A few hours later I get an email from his mother, asking if I had any idea as to what happened to her son? She said, he had told her a few stories and then eventually said that he had fallen on his face in the classroom.

Ummmm… no. No he did not fall in the classroom. At all. And definitely not on his face. I would have noticed, the kids would have noticed… and he would’ve said. Not to mention I talked to the nurse and she had even asked him if he had hit his head and he said no.

Why can’t kids just be honest? Now it looks like I’ve neglected her child, by letting him fall on his face in the room, and that I didn’t even tell her… sigh.

Speaking of headaches, I’ve had a weird headache since this morning. Around 8am I noticed that right behind my right eye, it hurts. Then it moved to include my right temple. Then for a while, it took over my headache… I took some medicine and now it’s just back behind my eye again. To say I’m a bit concerned is putting it lightly. Usually my headaches are on the other side of my head, and not related to my eye.
