I haven’t been writing a lot publicly lately because there’s a lot going on in my head. I keep two different handwritten journals, and they have been the recipient of most of my thoughts lately.
Spending time at Westridge yesterday, made me really miss teaching. That is an odd statement for me because I miss it pretty badly without being reminded of it. The simple act of speaking about teaching made me energized. I enjoy the interaction with kids as they are learning more than almost anything in the world. At this point, I would say it’s tied with writing. In some ways, it fulfills a very creative aspect in me. There’s something about figuring out how to teach a student and how to reach a student that requires as much creative energy as writing a short story.
I have been following baseball in box scores alone at this point. I’m happy to see how well Billingsley pitched last night! I didn’t think he would be a problem though….
After two days off, it’s back to work for me!
