Classes haven't even begun and yet my to-do list is a mile long. I have so many letters of recommendation to write for students that I barely have time to get my own stuff done. And I am prepping for two new classes this semester. To say that I am looking forward to the spring of 2015 is an understatement; it will be the first time in my academic career when I don't have a single new course prep. PTL!
Though the to-do lists are long and the demands on my time endless, I love my job. I love teaching, learning, working with students, researching, and trying new things.
I am so grateful for my job; for the opportunities it has provided me; for supportive colleagues; for a supportive partner; for great students; and for an exciting semester ahead of me.
Here's hoping I can check a few of these items off before bedtime...
