How I see the world…
To be very frank, and excuse the language, I see the world as pretty fucked up right now.
I’m not sure I understand what is going on half the time, and the war and violence astound me. I don’t know why there is, nor can I accept, all the hatred in the world.
Maybe that’s why I love my job so much. I get to be surrounded by innocent little children for the majority of my time and it creates this little bubble of sunshine for me. 3-year-olds don’t talk about war or violence (at least not in any way that is outside of Spiderman fighting the teddy bear on the couch). 9-year-olds, while a little more accustomed to the ways of the world, still live in a little imaginary place of joy and happiness most of the time and are fully capable of sucking you in right alongside them.
It’s a reprieve from the lies, games, and hurts of the world that otherwise cloud up my sunny disposition. And it’s honestly what’s gotten me through the last month of my life. Holding out for my play date next weekend to make it even better!
