Back in the classroom that is.
Although I will miss the sabbatical terribly--Goodbye, sabbatical. I will miss you, and I'm sorry I didn't always give you my full attention--I was actually slightly excited to go to class today. I met with my Brit Lit survey class and saw a lot of familiar faces who have taken my classes before. Then, I went to my comp class where I'm trying some things that are new. I started by having them draft their first paper in response to the Lenny Kravitz line, "Love is gentle as a rose." They seem to have jumped in with both feet. I think I set good vibes for the classes. We'll see.
Lots of prep work to do. Soon, there will be lots of grading, too.
And now I'm trying to figure out when I'm going to get that conference paper finished. And the dissertation. And I still want to keep getting my 7-8 hours of sleep per night.
I want it all! Roarrrrr!
