I am ready. Well maybe not as ready as I’d like but close enough. As spring semester starts back up again I’m ready to rock and roll. I am also ready to get back on track. This morning I woke up threw on my running shorts and got to it. I didn’t want to waste a second. I even did some toning work which I have been putting off for a long time. It’s not that I don’t want perfect abs but gosh it sure is a lot of work. It must be the spirit of new beginnings that has got me actually doing crunches and leg lifts and what not.
While I didn’t get to as much reading as I would have liked I am happy to say I did read some and wrote more that I ever have. I feel like I should give myself a blue ribbon or something. I think because I didn’t just loaf around (let me not be misunderstood there were days when I wicked lazy) during break and took some time to get some work done I am ready to start.
I even took the liberty of reorganizing my books which were starting to look like a ground zero. It was about 9 last night and I was not about to hop in the sack so I pulled the books of the shelves and started making piles. I stood in front of my books and said, “I’m going to start this semester right!” I may have even said it aloud.
I will say as excited as I am to get cracking I’m not as excited to teach. Although I love teaching I am definitely not ready to hear excuses and grade anything. I’m sure though once I walk into that classroom of anxious, yet arrogant spring semester freshman I’ll be glad to be back on schedule.
