Doodle for creativity!

As per Violette's blog contest, I have doodled for creativity. I admit, I didn't let my brain go completely here. I was at school (can you tell?) so this is about how I feel right now. It is the end of the year, Spring has sprung and the kid's brains are already on vacation. It is a frustrating time for teachers, yet I remain happy that i simply have a job subbing right now!

I have been giving tests lately, so you see the huge test paper in the foreground, the song above the bus is what was going through my head at the time, and every other symbol from the tree to the locker monster encompasses the end of the year emotions. There is the needing to get out and get some fresh air symbolized in the tentacles and stench from the dirty locker, and also the flirty birds in the tree enjoying their spring desires for love.

Teachers and students alike are antsy, burnt out, and unfocused this time of year. They really just want summer! Ideas are tiny light bulbs, shoved to the back burner for later as the desire to just get through this and get out overpowers everything else.

I'm enjoying doodling again, which I haven't done in a long time. So I think I may do another. :)
