Sorry to hear that. Do what you need to take care of yourself, your well-being has to come first for you to do your job well.💜

Unfortunately due to sub shortages it is difficult to take time for myself. Our office manager is hostile this year and comes off very rude when a sub doesn’t pick up a job and we have to fill it in house.. it is bad. I’ve gotten a call when at home “are you sure you can’t be in tomorrow?”

Are you able to plan things with your class that are enjoyable for you too?

My curriculum is literally scripted. So not really. But I enjoy the content so that is nice.

I'm sorry that this year has been rough. :/ I hope this up coming break gives you some breathing room. Maybe you can take a day or a few hours during the break and do things you want to do and give yourself permission to do it guilt free. I think sometimes when we are this overwhelmed or feel stuck, it helps when we give ourselves space to feel something else other than what we are feeling. It can give us prospective and help us understand where we are at in our lives and what we want to do with it (handle situations, set goals, reflect, etc.) I hope this helps.

I feel the same way. Glad to know I am not alone. I don't even know how to get out of my school. I feel so trapped. I wonder of principals strategically make good teachers feel inferior so they won't leave the school?

Is it just me or you guys feel this too that there is a general lack of fitness awareness in our community - healthy food vs not, workouts, diet plans, etc.

I feel like we were a generally fit community with our traditional foods, but with western influence in our food choices, everything is now extra cheese, extra Mayo, deep fried, etc.

Tummy flattening - so I been working out for over 8 months mostly lifting. Went from 215 to 190 lbs with increased lean muscle mass and fat down from 21 to 11 %. I am now eating a little calorie surplus since six weeks or so - I feel and look great, but my tummy doesn’t feel as flat as I would like it to be. Still feel bloated at times.. I have seen definition at 12.5% when I was in calorie deficit. Now I am lower and seem to have lost it. Why might that be outside holiday drinking?

Hi friends here… how long would you wait between FET cycles? I had a miscarriage (a few weeks only) in May from the FET, and my doctor said I could start a new FET cycle now that I have my period.

I don’t need a mental break but wonder if I’m rushing when my body is not ready. Just confused… thanks all!

I know people have asked in here how to go in house. After getting an in house job, I think my best tip is to get an internal referral. This is way easier than I thought. Since employees get paid for referrals if they get hired, usually they are very likely to give you one. Reach out to people on LinkedIn (even if you don’t know them) and ask if they have a referral program!! I did this and within a matter of hours had an interview lined up.

What do you do with a Staff with ~1 year exp that legit won’t work. For example, you give them a simple task at 10am that should take 3 hours max, they ignore your check-in messages and then ask if they can give it you in the morning. They never ask questions. Morning comes and they still didn’t do it. When they finally do it, it is riddled with errors and clearly shows they didn’t try. Working under tight deadlines, this staff is killing me as I cannot rely on them at all. What would you do?
