… the semester, with relatively low anxiety.
I set modest goals for day one of the semester. I had a baby at home with a fever and so opted for a half day. In that half day I wanted to read, schedule an appointment, attend a meeting, go to the lecture for the class I’m T.A.ing this semester, and come home to care for baby and read for tomorrow’s class.
Accomplished. All of it.
I have a bit more reading to do tomorrow (re-reading and annotating, actually), but… so far, so good.
I felt so different at the first teaching team meeting today than I did at the first teaching team meeting in August.
So far. More Chill.
Thanks be to God.
