A Deep Hatred

Never do I feel like more of a failure than when it is time to teach my jewelry unit. I HATE soldering. I can't even tell you how much. I am so bad at it. I get very frustrated and discouraged, because of the time it takes for me to "get it." Yet, I feel like it's just too cool not to do with the kids. ARGH. See that piece by the lighter? It's super cool, but it took me and the student 8 times-- EIGHT! -- to get it. That means every time we miss it, we have to sand it clean again.

I AM lucky though to have GREAT kids who are calm, patient, and okay with my mess ups. Thank Goodness!
I hope you have a better weekend than I solder.
