Must. Keep. Going.

I thought I was used to the exhaustion by last week, but these last two days I’ve been beat by 4 o’clock.  I still love my job.  The people are awesome.  The kids are awesome.  The thinking I get to do is awesome.   The variety in my work is really cool.  Tomorrow I’ll be teaching data visualization–through spreadsheets and a couple of other tools–and Scratch programming.  Today I did storyboarding in preparation for digital video projects.  And I’ve been given the green light to develop a year-long Computer Science course for next year.  Woo hoo!  Seriously.  I couldn’t be more excited.

But that likely means I have some long days ahead.  There’s not a whole lot of time during the day to develop a new course.  All my free time is spent either in meetings or planning my current courses.  It looks like it will be Thanksgiving before I see some more down time.  I’ll finish a trimester then and since my courses just repeat, I won’t have to completely replan.  I probably will tweak a few things, but no spending hours writing directions and plans for the day.

So right now I’m channeling Dory.
