Today is my last day of summer vacation. It is a little sad when I think about how time flies. But I also had a great summer – maybe not so much on the first weekend when I moved and the moving company didn’t show up, but definitely afterwards. I spent time at home with Canavar, I went to Germany, to New York City and to the Dominican Republic. I hadn’t even made a lot of plans for this summer, only moving and extending my U.S. visa were priorities. So I was positively surprised that I managed to do so many other things as well.
Now I am (hopefully) ready for the new school year. There was this moment last week when I suddenly felt excited to teach again, which is a pretty good sign. Ever since I’ve had plenty of ideas for my future classes. I probably won’t be as psyched tomorrow morning when my alarm is going off at a cruel time (ok, not that bad, but around 6.30 a.m.), but it is always fun to see my colleagues again. At least for the first (conference) day I feel well prepared, i.e. my lunch is already ready and in the fridge, my handbag is packed, and a first box of coffee cups is waiting in my car. On top, I did my laundry and even emptied the dishwasher. Now I only have to put some more thinking into tomorrow’s outfit, haha.
