Kwizgiver posts things that bug her on Thursdays. I’ve been crazy-busy today, so I’m stealing her idea. Today, I’m bugged by the fact that my personal things have been vandalized and generally disrespected at school lately. Over the last six months, the leaves of my plant have been stapled, an ugly epithet was carved into the table that my mother gave me before she died, and the disc that contains the driver for the printer I bought with my own money to keep in the classroom was gouged to destruction. The latest discovery happened today; I found that the Cambridge SoundWorks speakers I brought in to use at school had been removed from my room and brought to the theatre space, where I found them in a broken tangle on the floor.
I’ve submitted a tersely written letter requesting that the speakers be replaced. Part of my summer work is to secure my personal belongings in a lockable cabinet.
I am saddened.
