Now Teaching: Week -2

I will be coming back after a year away from teaching. There were nine weeks until the start of school (which is right after labour day) but any teacher who doesn’t come in at least once in the week prior to that (to figure out classroom setup, make photocopies, et cetera, all at no pay) is crazy. So if that’s “Week 0”, we’re at “Week -2”.

It was Marmalade week. After 17 years, I returned to a fanfic I’d left hanging in 2000. Sunday to re-read and re-format, Monday was 6+ hours of “Marmalade Boy” watching, Tuesday through Thursday was writing, Friday was editing. It took longer than I allocated, but once I realized what I had to do, actually less time than I thought.

Also this week, I determined that while I normally cringe after a couple hours in a social situation (family or otherwise), it’s not because I’m worried about my not getting work or marking done. It’s because I really am that flipping introverted. Anyway. I gotta start getting school organized, good thing that’s part of my “Might Never Do” List (that I seem to be working on anyway).
