  I am bummed out.  My teach for my adolescents class did not go well today.  My part went alright I guess but my partner's part sucked and we did not co-ordinate very well.  We don't get graded upon our performance in this class, but I still hate when my group does shitty.  Maybe we didn't do shitty and I am being too hard on myself...probably.  Who knows?  I am always too hard on myself.  I get worried sometimes that I'll be too hard in myself if I ever get teaching.

  Why do I ever start teaching?.  Well, we talked in one of my classes today about how hard it is for us history teachers for a job.  In fact it is not uncommon to go jobless for years as a history teacher in the Bay Area or LA or anywhere that isn't Bakersfield or Fresno.  I have been told to maybe pass the English CSET because many schools won't take you as a history teacher without it. 
  I am tired and don't feel like going out this weekend.  I feel like I have somehow pissed off some of my friends.  I don't know why I get that feeling, but I do.  I wish I was more cheerful, but I am not feeling it.
