Gift to Self
Gift to Self (GTS) has become a way of life among the new teachers at Truman. A GTS is frequently given after a challenging day at school. GTSs can take many forms but often result in a giant cookie, a manicure, mini cupcakes, unnecessary grocery shopping or a big glass of wine/beer. I especially love when a GTS takes the form of a toasted French roll smathered with butter.
When I told my Fordham observer about GTSs he told me my use of gifts to self signaled that I had found a work/life balance…that or an interesting coping method, right?
Whatever the reason, I have become a big fan of GTSs, I just need to keep an eye on that bank account before I take it too far…
