2. Informal poll. Are you tired all the time? Because I'm tired all the time, and I can't decide if this fatigue is A.) a result of my weird sleep habits and caffeine addiction, B.) just part of being a grown-up, or C.) some kind of health problem.
3. And, just in case you need to see how tired I look all the time, here's my school picture. (By the way, I think that one of the very worst parts of my job is the fact that I'm forced to take school pictures that will be featured in a yearbook.) This is what I look like at 9:45 a.m. with no makeup, and little will to live. In my defense, I had just spent the last hour of my life corralling primping ninth graders through a stuffy hallway, trying to get about 25 of them to keep from screaming and touching each other while standing in line. The only somewhat redeeming thing about this photo is that I had actually brushed my hair that morning.
