There’s been nothing of any description from the department either. All we as teachers have to work on atm is the announcement from Gladys and co yesterday. It’s gonna be a poo poo show and half but it’s also very much to be expected seeing as teachers have become a political football to kick around.
I’ll be really amazed if a bunch of teachers don’t end up leaving the profession after the dust settles and I wouldn’t blame them for it at all.

There was a statement from Dept of Education overnight telling parents that the return to school is an order and that their kids will be marked absent if they don't attend.

It's a huge error of judgement to be heavy-handed at the moment and I hope there's a significant backlash.

I feel extremely sorry for teachers, who are going to be under stress from all sides.

I have a real boomer relationship with phones. I use the thing for a lot of dumb poo poo to waste time but I also deeply resent it and leave it in the most desolate corners of my house for hours at a time kind of semi accidentally

I don't touch my phone for anything when at work. I'm there to work, not tool around on groupchats, social media and any other loving poo poo.

Clients hate it and always ask for my mobile number to txt me a photo of some serial number I need. Nope email it to my work email.

While I do like the sheer volume of water those things produce, the water pressure through the apartment sucks so it doesn't have much go, to the point I'm considering buying my own head that forces the water velocity to increase and get a better shower

Currently working on a jaw/closing mechanism for work and it's gotta mate up on a conveyor system, except the conveyor model is about 75mm out from what is sitting down in the plant lmao and I need it to be closer to 0mm out but also I don't want to spend 3 days remodelling the entire conveyor

just before isolation started, i went to an engagement party in melbourne. after a particularly messy bender we went and crashed at someones house.

upon rising in the morning i did the usual 'oh poo poo better check i didnt message any ex's' and went thru my chats.

'huh. seans lost his phone. he posted in the group chat' I said to my 2 friends asleep on the floor.

sean comes out of his room. "guys I cant find my phone"

"we know, we saw in the group chat. Someone call it"


everyone looks around for his phone in the flat for the next half hour, cutting it fine before our flight home. It doesnt turn up so we get in an uber.

for those playing at home, yes. sean was not the one posting in the group chat he lost his phone. it was the uber driver. none of us put two and two together until we called seans phone about half way to tullamarine and the uber driver answered and explained he was trying to tell us the entire morning via the group chat.

I misplaced my belt the other day and its absolutely shattered my will to do anything productive unless I can do it in pajamas. I cleaned up the house looking for my belt and then gave up in disgust when that didn't work. I'm thinking about growing a dirty warren ellis beard.

I got glasses today for the first time in my life and the optometrist laughed at me and was like "this is gonna blow your mind" and it turns out my vision was worse than I thought, the glasses felt like I had superhuman vision

Lmao

I'm hoping beyond all the garbage genetics my parents gave me (slower than normal metabolism, balding, possibility for diabetes, Hashimoto's disease, haemochromatosis) that I at least avoid the lovely eyesight ones from both sides and at age 31 I still think I'm in the clear but also might get checked soon lmao

For the meantime I just use my optometrist uncle as a source of free sunglasses each year with my BUPA. Last set was polarised RayBan wayfarers

I didn't get glasses until after I started teaching. I somehow made it through an entire arts degree and my masters thinking that all books are just a little fuzzy. My glasses aren't so much to fix my vision but correct my astigmatism.

Thats a good tip, i fall down the stairs enough due to going too fast thinking i'm more coordinated than i am.

I've really been giving myself crazy headaches by squinting my way through the day, i'm looking forward to getting my hands on these things. I probably should have done it years ago tbh.
