You should go back to MSH, it's really fun.

My food dish was on explore, couldn't imagine that it would go there...
Hibiscus are such beautiful flowers, and one of the things i have in common with that friend, we both love them.

I thought his mind wasn't in there, with me when i shot him, so probably his eye caught his longing feelings...

First sunday of September, last day of holidays for me. Tomorrow i will start working for real in my school, which i could stay a few more days at home... Every year when the school beggins these are my feelings, i don't want to go back, don't know why but i always feel sad about going back to school. Probably it's because i'm not teaching my favourite subjects, things have changed so much in school in the last years that now i'm not sure if i want to teach much longer. Have to think of something else other then teaching....
On top of that, i went to see the schedule for the trains to Barreiro because this year i'm hoping to have a nicer schedule that allows me to go by public transportation and i've learned that in this trains we have to pay to carry a bike. Shit! Is this going to be another year without my bike? I can't afford the money they are asking for it....

Anyway, after lunch i went to a coffee with my friend Sanita, she feels the same as me because she had to go to another school and she doesn't like it. So we stayed talking all afternoon about what is expecting us tomorrow and then we went to the docks, to see seagulls and boats and feel the sun and salty air in our faces, and everything seemed better...

After all it was a good day. My friend and collegue Rui asked me to call him when i was arriving to school because he wanted to talk for a bit. It was great because he was a dear person to work with in the last year and most of all because he didn't know if he would get a place to teach this year. And he got one not far from his home, so all is well when it ends well.
After school i went with Fernanda for a coffee and a chocolat mousse at D. Irene's coffee. She makes the most wonderful chocolate mousse in the world, it is so good.... miammmmmm....

Then, it was time to come home, i had my schedule for the whole week and tuesday was going to be a day off, so i phoned Z., asked him to stay with the kids because i wanted one last day of holidays, needed to be on my own. We do that every year, one or two days the other stays with the kids and we just go wherever we want alone, all alone. Some of my friends say that we shouldn't do that because in a marriage people should always be together. I really don't agree with them, everybody needs a bit of a time off once in a while and this is one of the things that we always needed to do, both of us.
So, i went to Vila Nova de Milfontes because there were some places there that i wanted to be just in my own. Stayed at Patiblue's house again. Went for a coffe late in the evening with her and made a tererê on my hair with green colours. Now i'm ready for school.

When i woke up at Pati's i was really relaxed and happy. Dreessed up and went driving to some places where i really like to be, the sun wasn't shining as it as been for the last days but it was great. Saw beautiful Alentejo landscapes, that is always great and then went to the docks, where i stayed watching fishermen working and talking, it is a place where i always feel so peaceful. Came back to the village and went to the places i remembered better, took shots of so many things, didn't talk to no one and then came back, happy as a kid for just being there.

Went to Pati's at lunch time, and then we decided to go to some places she loves just to photograph. Her daughter, Maria is 6 and came with us with a tiny little camera. We took shots, bought the special and tasty bread they make in there and then i came home. On my way home i decided to stop at Alcácer do Sal, a beautiful little village by the Sado river. I got there just in time to catch the sunset under the bridge. Walked for a bit and then came rushing to catch my kids awake. We talked and talked and told each other the things we did today and now it's time for bed with a smile.

Didn't feel so good these days. Bitter, with revenge feelings crossing my mind all the time, couldn't come here. That isn't the way i live and it bothers me feeling this way, but sometimes i really can't help it.

On wednesday, at school, we learned the levels each of us would have for this year. In July we know what might be and we choose what to have starting with the most graduate teacher (oldest in the system). Then in August everything changes, because lots of students only come then to school and there are much more classes then expected. So, i learned i was going to have four levels (too much for anyone but, what the hell, we are there to work, right?) and i was so happy about it. I was going to have: 10º Biology - Geology (one of my favourites from all times), 11º Human Biology (continuity of last year's 10º grade, with the bonus of keeping my garden vegetables project with the same students), 9º citizenship (never had, wouldn't be difficult, i'm sure. It's a special class with older 9th grade students that can't finish the normal curriculum at school. Normally i get along with these kids and things go smoothly), 12º Hygiene, health and safety at work (Never had and the program allows lots of different things, not hard to prepare). I looked at the levels and smiled all my face off. This meant that i would not have nught classes this year, with three imediaty advantages:
- More time to be with my little kids;
- Public transport by train and then bike, with more then a hundred euros saved by month;
- Z. could go back to his night shift with more them five hundred euros a month.
Then i started thinking of the way i was going to teach the 10th grade, my mind went away, imagining the class and the kids and i already had prepared in my mind a visit to the Live Science Museum in Estremoz (they have great experiences that the kids can do), a visit to a exploration of marble stone, a geology in the field trip to Sintra region, where they would see the geology cycle on the field and some great faults, grabens and horsts, they would see how the Atlantic ocean opened and...... well i was going on, and on, so so happy with my luck.

Then it came thursday. I knew one of my collegues was sad because she was going to have night classes but i didn't imagine what she was capable off. In the meeting we received the schedule for the week, with all the classes and the other stuff we do in school. I saw two sets of things and thought, well i have mornings and afternoons, but who cares. Then i saw a 10th and 11th grade and thought, they didn't put the discipline name in here, it's not normal, but never thought that those weren't my levels. My collegue went, on the day before, to the executive after our meeting and said,: Well, i'm more graduate then her, so i want her classes, she can't have then. And the change was made, i really can't beleive it, because one of the first things that matters when we choose it's continuity in classes and i had that.
During the meeting, she turned to me and said: It seems that our levels are swaped. And that was when i really swa that. Told that to the coodinator and he told us he didn't know anything about it and that i should go to the executive and ask them for the swap. Most of the other collegues looked guilty, I learned later, they all knew this, except me. And then, after more then ten minutes, when i was going to the executive, one other collegue said: Don't go, your collegue went there yesterday and said she was more graduate then you and asked for your levels. It is going to stay like that because she wanted it.
I looked at her, and she didn't said a word, she didn't apologize, she didn't gave an explanation, nothing, she just stood there, pretending it wasn't her problem. I'm really pissed....

Now i have: 10º and 11º night classes Biology / Geology, 12º Hygiene, health and safety at work, 8º and 9º environment issues. Five levels, afternoons and nights, shit!

Went for a walk with Fernanda, one of my friends from school and found some great grafittys that allowed me to be a bit more calm.

Oh my.

It isn't easy being a teacher no matter where you are. My wife is a High School teacher- teaches Spanish and Amercian Sign Language.

I read with much understanding the silly politics of school.. and.. I can't help but be really amazed at how so similar the fisher's boats are to those I see way down south at Canary Islands... These boats. I am talking about your 4-9-2007 shot.. the blurry boats. The boat might be blurry but the colors are not!

Catching up now...pity about the lack of seniority respect...its not right but it does happen. I agree with you about time alone. My wife returns to usa for a month per year - she visits friends and family and I carry on with the things that need done here in Paris. We miss each other terribly but the time away accentuates the time together.

Your photos are interesting and the stories capture my attention. Thanks to you for that. Teaching at whatever level is noble. All things tend to balance in the end...good luck with that. For now...good stuff here !

One thing i have to agree with you, silly politics of school are a bit all over the world. And the boats you're showing are really similar to portuguese ones, thanks for showing that.

We have to live with what we have. I was so angry but... life goes on and i have to make the most of this school year. When it starts, with the kids we tend to forget about nonsence and stupid atitudes of others...

All morning at home, with Z. and the kids. Went to the old house to show it again to some guys that wanted to buy it and then went straight to school. Stayed there all afternoon, searching the net and books on the biology group for stuff for my classes. On the end, went to my garden to pick up some more tomatoes that were good already and water everything.
Phoned Tania and went to see her and talk for a bit. Haven't been with her for more then one month now. We went to Rosário's beach, near her house. She drove, a bit scared, but was able to do it all the way. And it was so beautiful there, lots of birds in the pond near the ocean, we walked and talked and it was great. Then she had to go home, i went with her up the second floor, she is still so weak it worrys me....
Then came back to Rosarinho's, the sunset was coming and it's always great in there.

Lisbon for bikes! That's what the association of the ciclotourism and bike riders proposed to do on this sunday in Lisbon. They asked the mayor to come with us and ride all over Lisbon to see where he should make a green corridor for cyclists. It's really difficult to work in Lisbon and not use a car. Now, more and more people is riding bikes, but it's still very dangerous and most of the public tranportations do not allow bikes inside. Maybe that's all changing, we can only hope for that.

On the evening went with Tania and her boyfriend to Rosarinho's beach with Neal, a frien from USA we both knew here in flickr. He has a full month of holidays in Europe. Already went to Italy and France and he's staying the rest of the month in Portugal. Will upload photos later, no time for that yet.

That flag was made for one of mine birthday partys, ages ago. I was in my first year of Geology and came very late home. My mother, brothers and sisters decided i would like a Pirate's party so they did it all behind my back. Everyone who would arrive, would have a scarf for the head and would have a glass of rum and food with no forks and knives. It was so good, i kept the flag until today.

I liked the shot of Antonio as well. And one day there will be bike lanes everywhere, i keep on believing in this.

A busy saturday today. All morning helping the kids with their homeworks and cleaning their rooms. After lunch we went to buy stuff for school. I like to go with them and let them choose the things they will use for the year. They are great kids, don't ask for stuff and buy me this or that, as i see in some of my friends kids. Carlota is saying she is a big girl and needs books for school like their brothers.
On the night, went with Ana to have dinner with ValtaC and R5. We stayed watching "The Departed" of Scorsese, great movie.

Carlota's birthday. Now she's three. It was a nice day and i did not go to school to be with the kids. It's really hard on these days to arrive home after midnight so....
She went to school just at lunch time and stayed there for three hours to have a birthday party with their little friends. I went to pick her up and we went to a walk just the two of us. Then, time to pick up her brothers from school, and go for a bit to see my Mom. We waited there for Z. and then the five of us went to have dinner out. Pizzas for the kids with lots of chouriço, as they like and cokes or juice. We took a book to read while we were waiting for the food and now it's getting so good cause we take turns in reading, the kids do it very well already and they enjoy reading.
After dinner we took a walk in the night, another full moon with no shots :((
Came home, gave Carlota some presents and then time for bed. It was nice and peaceful. Sunday we will have a birthday party for Carlota's friends and cousins.

Went with my camera everytime i went out but, don't know why, diudn't take any shot. Now, after 2,00 a. m. i remembered i had no photo and took a shot of this boat Z. is building.

Parece que levei um soco....

My eye was so big and hurt so much that i went to the hospital on the afternoon. Talked with my colleagues and swapped classes so i wouldn't have to justify it. Stayed in the hospital for more then 3 hours. They gave me a shot in the eye and took something out, don't know what, and i have to put for some days a remedy and have some pills to take. It will be better soon, i hope. I need to be seeing ok on the 5th for the Lisbon International Flickr Meeting.

hello! lovely pics, I don't get much time to browse. Wanted to say about your 9-23.. I have lots of tree root/knot/bark pics. My grandmother taught us to notice things like that, but have to say I can't find your crocodile!

I had to replace the classes i swapped yesterday. So today i teached classes from 15.00 to 23.45 pm. I was so tired on the last two.... On my way home gave a lift to a student who lives in Coina, then i stopped at Azeitão for a coffee and took this long exposure of a wine place.

Buganvíleas are always beautiful.

Went for a walk on the afternoon with my kids, beautiful flowers were there. The kids said: Mom, take a shot of this pink flower it's so beautiful. So i did.
Cool colours

Hello Loca - cruising through after too many days of not doing so... schedules and business trips get in the way of everything ! I hope your flickr days were good - seems so. The tree roots...I heard recently that all trees have a face in the bark - you only have to look for it. Nicely done.

I appreciate that your children point out potential subjects for photos...it means they understand how important the activity is to you. Good stuff here.

I've been busy at school, this year is really going to be hard. I can't do this daily, the time is not enough anymore.

A little break for a coffee was the only time today i took a shot.

Today i had my class on the outside. We didn't want to go inside a dark room with the beautiful sun that was shining. The kids loved it, it was the first time a teacher took them to have a class outside.

I cut my hair today, Ana, the one on the photo, came with me. Worked 13 hours at school, came home and stayed working in my computer, preparing classes until now 4,00 a.m.. This must stop, need my sleep and a bit of peace in my mind. Everybody's acting crazy this year....

School is taking most of my time, changes in the system are living everybody tired and lost.

When feeling lost, look at the sky to find yourself....

Dinner, lunch or what?
That's the title of this photo. I had this meal at 5 p. m., between meetings and classes in the only ten minutes off i had today. What does the system pretend with this? I know, i'm feeling sad and hopeless and haven't found a way yet to feel happy about school, don't know how will i do to keep on moving... Have to find my way, this doesn't work for me....

Dinner, lunch or what?!....

Saturday. Went with Fernanda to Lisbon to a upgrade in moodle platform. This was taken while crossing the Tagus river.

The morning went well, we learned so many knew things to work with the kids in school. It was a wise choice this upgrade.

Loca - as always your colors are a treat ! Sounds like busy is an understatement but that is always better than the exact opposite...if it were easy ANYONE could do it...it is hard SO they need you !

Beautiful sunsets, beautiful blue sky in the last, and a healthy lunch/supper on the 19th. I so miss the crispy Portuguese bread we used to get in SA.

Sorry to hear you are so overworked and frustrated, because we have learned how committed you are to the job you are doing.

And Happy Anniversary today! I hope you find a way of celebrating appropriately.
Loca.... 11 years ago
Thanks for these words. Feels good to ear them.

I found a way to celebrate it, had dinner, a special one with Z. but it was past midnight.... it doesn't matter, it felt great.

Took my new students to the school gardens for the first time this year. We planted two fruit trees and beside us there was a gymnastic class of my older students, from last year. So when it was over they came and we stayed talking and telling each other this years news, it was so good.
CG must be right, there are always good things about what you do, i love being a teacher and these bits make me see that my choice was right. Things are getting on the track....

Ah, beautiful saturday. We had another flickr meeting. This time with the Portuguese Flickr Friends Group. Just a bunch of portuguese guys that love to photograph and get together to chat, eat and drink. We went to Comporta and Carrasqueira, near Setúbal. It was amazing, great and i learned some new techniques and advices about my camera. On the way back my car stopped working and i almost stayed on the other side of Sado river, alone, in the night with no way to come back, fortunatly i mannaged to start it and came home safely. It didn't work anymore so i guess i was really lucky.

Went to see Tânia, my friend that as a heart problem. She is so fragile again, it was hard to see her, she looks so tiny, so sick... Hope they find her a new heart soon.
