I've been tired since 10 o'clock this morning. I had a class to teach at 9, and while I'm glad to have gotten it out of the way early, teaching is such a stretch to my introvert personality that I always feel drained after. So, I'm tired. I've also noticed that I'm not as excited to creatively plan my lessons the way I once was. I've unfortunately become a bit jaded about instruction given the sheer volume of student apathy that I see. I'm hoping that with some recharging over the summer, I'll be more inspired about it in the fall.
Luckily, I'm having drinks with my girlfriends from college later, and that will perk me right up :) Gossip always does that for me. I just scarfed down at least a half dozen Tootsie Rolls (who left the candy in the reference office?!) in an effort to bring me out of my stupor, as I have another English Comp. class to plan for tomorrow... No dice. I still feel like someone needs to scrape me off of the floor.
