    1/3 of my class is missing because they are participating in that climate change walk-out.

    Kinda nice.

    They're all good kids but a class of 20 is awesome.

    After a fashion. Her self-hygiene was deteriorated to a point where she was getting frequent eye infections, etc. But her personality was quite histrionic, so treatment was difficult. I can't think of the word the vet used. Something way more intense than cantankerous. It was kind of a no win situation.

Like anything else it's a process. I always tell James "We don't lose. We win or we learn and it's not all about winning."

    I, on the other hand, was the complete opposite as a kid. I HATED to lose. My dad always reminds me that I yelled at him once when he was congratulating me on second place, "SECOND PLACE IS FIRST LOSER!"

    I was a little over the top competitive.
    I feel like band was where I learned those things. It is largely absent of the competitive spirit, though, outside of regional events.

    And at the regional events, you aren't competing against each other. You're competing against a standard, and then your results are ranked against each other.

    the kids say he graduated last year and he didn't have any friends. He felt like even the band kids hated him and that's why he couldn't make friends in college either.

    We talked about how differently this could have turned out if just one student showed him some compassion. We had a good talk this morning and this is in my culinary class.
    I have feels about this. Like, yes we should all try to be inclusive. But someone's psychotic break isn't the fault of someone else for not saying hi. We are not responsible for the mental health of others. This feels kind of like "well if she hadn't dumped him, he wouldn't have killed himself". Know what I mean?
