Teaching can be planned and executed perfectly. The day can be incredibly smooth and worry free. If only that had happened today. It sounds like my teaching day was a complete disaster. That isn’t really true. It wasn’t horrible, it just wasn’t fantastic. I might be whining about nothing, but when it gets right down to it, I want the day to be fantastic.
So, sadly, Today’s Perfect Moment is when the final bell rung, and the teaching day finished. The low level, yet rather accumulated, stress washed off me. I felt more like a survivor than a winner, but sometimes that is enough.
If I analyze it deeply, or even superficially, perhaps I need a vacation. I probably need time to sleep, and maybe time to refocus. I guess I should figure out when this vacation should, or could be since I may or may not need to buy my transit pass tomorrow.
