I think this is the longest I’ve ever gone without writing – free writing. I’m a constant writer. Whether I publish it on the blog or not, on any given day you will find me in a room, a cafe, a hallway, a little corner… just typing away my thoughts and ideas. Or rambling. But really, what’s the difference.
I took a break for a while, well, sort of – because it really wasn’t a break. I have been running around for the past week now, trying to prepare for teaching and classes. Yesterday was my first day teaching, and after all that preparation, I still don’t think I was quite there.
I don’t think I’ve ever been this tired. Granted, it’s now only my second day, but still. In college I woke up at 7 every day and didn’t get back home till 8 or 9, then didn’t make it to bed till 2. And I’m more tired now? with a 6.5 hour workday? What is it about teaching that just sucks the energy right out of you?
Now, I have exactly 4 minutes before little 8th graders march into class and demand (ok, are forced) to learn about Mesopotamia and the Sumerians. But I find myself with a bit of time and an urge to just write it all down.
Pictures coming soon. As soon as I have the energy and time to
take… er, upload.
