Summer vacation has ended and I am back to my everyday life as a teacher. Every morning when I leave the house, I love that the first thing I see is the beautiful Chrysler Building. Besides my two bags (laptop case and handbag), I always always carry a travel mug with hot tea or coffee with me. It takes me exactly 7 minutes to walk from home into the commuter rail that takes me to White Plains. At that time (7 a.m. early) everybody is on their way to work and the city buzzes with fresh morning energy. I can lean back on the train for another 40 to 50 minutes. When I get off, I walk about ten minutes to the garage where I park my car and then I drive another ten minutes to work. In the evening I do the reverse. Only then I am much more tired and can’t wait to get home and take a short nap on most days. Always at the start of every new school year, it takes me a while to get used to everything. Now with my new job there are even more new things and people and so much input. I even went to bed at 9 p.m. several times last week. Canavar, of course, is very happy about so much sleep. But I hope that my energy levels will rise over the course of the next few weeks. It would be great if I managed to still go to the gym in the evenings or grocery shopping. Being so tired, I had the awful idea to do that on Saturday at noon – I stood in the line for about 45 minutes. Or to discover more of New York City in Indian summer because there is so much more than just the Chrysler Building.
