Not Enough Time in the Day


The above picture is what I would love to be doing today: curled up with HRH, The Queen (codename for my cat, who is named after a real queen of England), catching up on my sleep. However, it seems like there are not enough hours in the day to get it all done and get some sleep. I am teaching a new class this week, sort of. The senior honors English class at my high school is learning a subject in which I have a particular expertise. It's part of my dissertation, and I am having a great time, actually presenting part of my dissertation to these kids (They are learning something that they would not normally have been taught, and I hope that it will bring an interest to the subject that wasn't there before). As I said, I am having fun with it because I am finally able to teach something that I have spent years studying. However, I don't want to go in their unprepared, so it's taking up a bit of my time. Plus, I teach my regular English class at the same time as this class, so I have to have plenty of work for them to do while I am in the honors class this week. Ah, the joys of teaching...

It has to be more interesting than what I remember from how banal my senior English course was. I'd love to hear more about your thesis!

Also, curling up on the bed with a kitty, sound wonderful.

Wow! Where were you when I was taking 11th grade english? Somehow I bet I would have paid a lot more attention to you.
