I’ve got the Delta blues

My kids yelled at me today.

My school has a cockroach infestation.

There is either no air or air on full blast.

It’s over 100 degrees outside and we have no air on the hour long bus ride.

My kids are so far behind that I don’t see them ever catching up.

I need to teach better for them, but I don’t know how. The sessions we go to are too little, too late.

I miss home a lot.

I don’t want to teach English for another three weeks; I definitely do not want to teach it for the next two years.

I have the Delta blues. It’s been a rough Monday.
