I think this will be my biggest challenge this semester. I’m keyed up after my night class, though also exhausted. The fact that I have to be back in that same classroom 12-ish hours later… Yeah, not ideal. Look, I get it. I have a 4-course load. I recognize that doing this with only 3 teaching days a week is a challenge. And yet, the three teaching days are a necessity if I’m to continue to have a research agenda. I accept all that, and it’s fine. But that turn-around from ending the grad class at 9 pm, keyed up, and knowing that I need to be back in the saddle for the 9:25 am class in the same room the next day… that is hard-core. And I fear that the morning class will suffer because of it.
Ok, I just had to say all that. But now I have to try to go to sleep again. Dammit.
