I’ve been working around eighty hours a week since school started late August. I’m working a new prep, as we say in high school teaching biz, and I like it. But I’m working past midnight most nights, and I look forward to the weekends to have a chance to really plan and grade, unimpeded by classes and meetings.
So I don’t have enough time to write in the margins of my books (my favorite medium) or in my journal (my next-to-favorite). I’d love to blog, too, but there’s no space in my crowded head even to miss it.
I’ve been blogging less than you realize, if that’s possible. All of what I’ve posted here in September and October was written or photographed in July or August, with the exception of two written posts.
