Decisions, decisions, decisions. I have one day left in my Christmas break from my glamorous life as a high school teacher. I am dealing with this with some mixed emotions. I really don't want to go back, but I know once I get back in the swing of things, I'll be just fine. I am trying to sweeten the sting of being forced to sleep normal hours and bathe regularly and speak to people by taking my new Keurig coffee pot to my classroom. But will that be enough?
The second semester always flies by, so I have no doubt that this one will follow suit. But I'm really struggling to find the motivation right now amidst sleeping in and taking naps and being even more lazy than usual! At the same time, I'm trying not to complain because I am saving my whole lecture on how being a teacher is not this cushy 8AM-3PM, no nights, no weekends, summers off for the END of the school year.
It's amazing how quickly we get out of a schedule. A couple of days of sleeping in and suddenly everything's flipped over and you (or is it just me?) are ready to run away to Never Never Land and live the happy, carefree life of a Lost Boy. Who wants to run away with me?
