It took six hours of my weekend to design Tuesday's lecture, but a kid gasped in third period (seriously) when I lit up the path of the cue ball and I knew I'd do it all again.

Algebra is going as well right now, but other priorities are tugging me away. Like unpacking so I don't have to sleep in a bag for the third night in a row.
