Easter weekend brain dump...
Four-day weekend. Just what I needed. Work is tough this year. I'm the only staff interpreter on the campus; we have a revolving door of agency interpreters covering the other two classes. One of the teachers did give me a great compliment last week, saying that I was a great interpreter and that they loved the fact that I connected to the school on a team basis. But, of course, I do...that's what my job is. I'm an educational interpreter, so being part of the education team is key. I get why they said that, though. The agency interpreters don't have the loyalty that a staff interpreter would.
I am a lapsed Catholic. However, I now see myself as a spiritual being. So why am I mentioning this? Because of Easter? Yes. I do believe in the story of Jesus. But I don't discount other religious figures. I mean, who am I to judge. So Easter is a time of renewal, a time of miracles, a time to simply be the best person I can be in the world. I know I'm materialistic. I like having nice things. I like being pampered. I like having things done for me. I don't know how to balance that yet. I know I need to purge and live more simplistic. I know that I'm fortunate. I should be doing better.
How does all this relate? Who fucking knows. My brain sometimes just needs to be dumped so I can make room for organizing these thoughts. *sigh*
