Now Teaching: Week 25

So much for the break and stress relief, forgot that helping with a musical adds drama to one’s life. “Phantom” has been about 24 hours, huh. My left arm is really starting to bother me to the point where I took a Tylenol. Coordinating test absences is insane, not helped by Friday’s freezing rain. And Jose is in from France. It’s all happening now. Yet I still feel like there's time to get things done?

Now Teaching: Week 24

Suddenly, a break, more or less. First semester is finally out and I’m mostly caught up in semester two (in part thanks to the PD Day and grading during rehearsal time). “Phantom” was about 11 hours? Valentine’s day was lime tilapia instead of ham, and Anne-Lise wrote a lovely note. TV shows are finished their runs (Trek’s Discovery and Librarians, the only ones I’ve kept up with). The question is what form of writing I want to do with Family Day.

Now Teaching: Week 23

Okay, getting into the swing of semester two now. I am still bad at remembering names though, which doesn’t bode well for when I’m in a retirement home. Had already had parent contact. Phantom was around 8 hours? Finally hemmed the hole in my pants pocket. Got my library card from 1996 renewed. Bought a bunch of Nanoha figmas. My comic is coming up for the chat this week, oh golly.

RH Stress Level: 5 (ACS Standby)

Saturday, 3 February 2018

Now Teaching: Week 22

Definitely feeling the stress at this point, two days into semester two while trying to finish the summative marks for semester one. >.< I’m still getting sleep more or less, and the batteries in the smoke alarms are replaced, while Phantom was only about 8 hours total. Math contests need to be organized. My wife had a medical appointment. PC Optimum needed activation. Library duty has begun, anime club resumed, OAME registration, sendoff note for Lindsay (my CS replacement). All the little things, so many of them. Hope to find some time for writing this month.
