First Day of the Semester

I have so much to do this month that I sit over my planner like a mathematician over a theorem (or whatever it is mathematicians sit over). It’s like a puzzle that is very hard to solve. Little blocks of time get shifted and color-coded.

It’s just day one of the semester. This is supposed to be very relaxed. What happened?

One thought on “First Day of the Semester

  1. Fie upon this quiet life on said:

    Last semester I had only three classes, with two preps. This semester I have four classes with three preps — one class is totally new to me.

    I cannot tell you how much harder this semester looks on my calendar (and feels in my head). I am going to be busier than ever.

    I have frequently managed to get a course release for one stupid reason or another. But I’m out of excuses for a little while. The 4/4 burden feels really unpleasant. I always knew it was, but when you’re not feeling it for a few months, you forget.
