Breaking Through The Surface

There are 5 weeks left of school.

Can I get a "yee-haw!!!"?

Man, I remember this time last year. Not fun for me. I was taking this killer course for my Master's program while trying to finish up the year. Everyday, I felt a little bit more like shit. Not good times. Not. I had the summer to look forward to in which I would be taking TWO courses (the final two) right up until the end of August. This meant classes every effing day. NOT FUN.

But that's over with now. Man, what a difference one year can make. I'm slowly starting to feel better about myself. I'm gearing up to teach a new grade next year. I'm gearing up for another course this summer, but one which will only last for part of July and will be more fun, since I'm taking it with friends. I'm gearing up for a summer of outdoor activities. Yoga classes. Taking care of me.

Last year at this time, I was drowning. Now, I'm treading water. Next year at this time, I expect to be equivalent to a professional swimmer.

Masters classes, yeah I remember those days. I didn't think about it at the time, I just plowed through it. Sure feels good to get it over with.

There's nothing quite as tiring as going to school while teaching school. Hang in there!
