Oh, late fall. Hi, how are you? You have pretty autumn colors and the best holidays coming up. I always knew that about you. Oh, but no one told me that the worst month in the world for teaching is also included in your time frame. Thanks a lot.
Sound familiar? Now fall and I have a very different relationship, but back in my first year, October and I had a very bad falling out, which I will never ever forget. Seriously, I still remember the time that I just stared in the mirror with my hair all cut off and asking myself—what am I doing?
