- On the up side, economies of scale have kicked in pretty fast teaching three sections of Algebra versus two. Energy seems an even trade — 50% more classes depletes me an extra 50% — but it costs me nothing to run my slidedecks again or to print out an extra 25 handouts. That’s nice.
- On the down side, the fact that I’m here at this dumb coffee shop and have been every day so far, makes me feel like I violated the terms of a contract I made with myself last year.
- Even farther down the side, I can’t seem to plan an hour to save my life. Which is to say, I’ve underplanned every day this week, which would be inexcusable if not for the fact that …
- … I’m staying a day or two ahead of myself this year (big assist from slides I made last year). I just click past the next day’s opener, pick up with the next notes, and no one’s the wiser except you, me, and the Internet here.
