It’s amazing what a day without students can do for a teacher.
I’ve been so incredibly productive — both in terms of the things I’m supposed to be doing, i.e. for my classes and my students, and also for other stuff, i.e. making progress on the novel — that it’s hard to believe I fit everything into an 8-hour period.
But at the same time it feels like I didn’t get nearly enough done. There’s always more work to do, always the sense that I could’ve gotten more done. I never know whether to pat myself on the back for getting things done or kick myself for not doing enough.
Oh well. Happy Friday.
