It’s the middle of July. It’s hot, unbearably so. But of more concern is the fact that the summer is more than half over, and it doesn’t feel like it should be. It’s yet another one of the weird time compression things that are all too common to teachers. Parts of the semester crawl by, others fly. The same things happen during off times. Sometimes the time is sufficient, and goes by at a leisurely pace. Other times it feels like we don’t have a chance to even catch our breaths.
I guess the only thing to do is make the most of the time that’s left. It’s time to start crossing projects off my list. I’ve been working on a lot of them simultaneously, so I haven’t been idle. Maybe completing a few will make the time better spent.
