The sun is shining and I’m at my desk typing this post. If I wasn’t typing this post, I’d be doing something else – like working on my literary analysis of Jack London’s White Fang or editing four poems that are due this week. Instead, I’m glancing wistfully out the window and griping to you – my faithful readers (what? Are there about 5 of you now?)
Even though my youngest son has been home from college for three weeks, I am still doing work. Even though my older son will get done with his junior year at the same time my students at the middle school finish, I will still have homework. The biggest problem I have with being a non-traditional student is that there are very few breaks. I got mine during the Christmas season, so now there’s nothing until September.
My husband asked me, “Why don’t you just take a term off?” I’m pretty sure we can all answer that. Maybe even in unison. I want to get DONE! If I take time off, it just means that much longer before I’m done with my degree.
So, enough whining already. It must be about time for me to get back to work. Feel free to comment your own gripes or send me an encouraging word. I hope to begin posting at least once per week once I’m done with my job for the summer (June 15th – not that I’m counting down or anything!)
