Just a (very) quick update to let everyone know what I’ve been up to. This week I’ve been…
…planning: for the semester! I’ve let myself get very caught up in course planning this past week. My schedule is a little different this semester – one of my courses is a longer class period than I’m used to, so I’ve got quite a lot of lecture shuffling and schedule adjusting to do on top of the usual revising I do every year.
…working on: a few more text-heavy posts for here. They always take me a little bit longer to write because of the obsessive compulsive drive to revise anything eight billion times. (I really should know better by now – one of my bad writing habits is that I often revise pieces to death, and they end up a bit worse for it. Been fighting this fight since college). I’ve got a few school-themed posts, and also a few book review posts in the works.
…feeling: Excited but the teeniest bit anxious for the impending start of the semester! The closer it creeps, the more butterflies I get in my stomach thinking about it – but it’s a good nervous. A rush that’s both exhilarating and a little scary. The kind of adrenaline spike that I always figured musicians who were actually meant to be musicians felt before a big performance. It’s how I know that teaching is really what I’m meant to do.
You guys up to anything exciting?
