This week started well, had a horrible middle and ended on a positive note. That is at least how I sum it up.
On Monday school started again and this week we taught from home, which was a nice way to get back into routines after Christmas break. Tomorrow we’ll return to the school building – everybody had to get Covid tested, which I like a lot as a strategy to reopen a school.
Wednesday, of course, was the absolute low point. Like OMG! A mob stormed the Capitol and the president cheered for them. It made me feel extremely disappointed and angry at the U.S. – the country that always used to promote and defend democracy. Apparently not so much anymore. At least the days of this president are numbered and I can’t wait for the next one.
At the end of the week the governor announced that from tomorrow on teachers can also receive the Covid vaccination. So I immediately made myself an appointment for the week after next and hope that this vaccination dream actually becomes true so quickly for me.
