Been a Long Time Gone

I haven’t posted forever. I haven’t felt like posting forever. I haven’t kept up with blogs. I barely kept up with my grading last semester.

Last semester was really difficult. I feel like I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. It’s my own fault. I’m hoping that this semester will be different — that I will force myself to become more organized. That my teaching will enable my students to learn. That I will be able to juggle grad class with teaching and with my other project I’m involved in — all at the same time.

Social life? Not a necessity. My issue this year was that I was so mentally bogged down. Every time I got home, all I wanted to do was sit on the couch and be a TV vegetable. I didn’t want to think about school. I didn’t want to grade. I didn’t wanted to do anything except unwind.

There’s got to be a better way.

So, here’s hoping 2010 is better. For me, but for everyone else as well.

  1. I so understand where you are coming from. Last semester I worked 60-80 hrs a week and had 1 lit class. I could never focus long enough to write essays for the class so I took an incomplete. TV vegetable was my name too. I hope you have a better semester!!!
