The best part about making bread (besides eating it) is the same as the best part about math: people think it’s really hard and therefore are impressed when you do it. (Even thought it’s not)
The thing is the hardest part about making bread really is just all the dishes you have to wash. Bread is a lazy person’s food. You do one easy step then you hang out. Then you do an even easier step then you sit around again. Finally you make it look pretty, bake it and have super impressive and delicious outcome. Plus the success is tangible.
I’m starting to get tired again like I did right before thanksgiving. Not to the same extent but still. I am going to the Staff Winter Party tonight and then I am taking the rest of the weekend to just grade and hang around my apartment. I have a alot of stuff to do but I’m really okay with that. So long as I get to do it in lazy clothes without having to impress other people. I feel like my battery depleted faster than it did in the first part of school. Is this normal?
How do you recharge? Are you better at this than me? I felt amazing after going to my parents for a few days but that’s really not a feasible recharging option. I’m hoping two weeks will be enough. I’m spending one week at home and one week here just hanging out. ( I think 9 days with my family without a car will do it for me. love you, mom)
If I am feeling like this I wonder how my kids are feeling? I know that we like to joke that we are more excited for vacation then the kids but I cannot imagine that the kids are feeling any less burnt out then me. Will I feel better after break? Do you feel better in January? I know that there are a lot of vacations in spring semester, does that help with burn out?
I know this is short but I’m tired and when I started writing this post (friday) I was determined to finish it. So BAM done.
