Now officially in the final countdown!
Sorry, but for most of you that is probably true. I actually love the commercials with that song in them. It was a fave of mine back in the day and I think the commercial is hilarious.
But, seriously, I AM in the final countdown. One of the campuses I work at is done for the semester (other than a pile of grading I have to do in those classes, but I’m making pretty good progress this weekend) and the other is in finals this coming week. So, three more class meetings and I. am. finished. So thankful. I am tired this semester. More tired than usual I think. But, I also think that teaching is like childbirth. If anyone really remembered everything that happened in the process, they would never return to do it again. So, we have some selective memory that allows us to continue doing what would otherwise seem insane to do a second (or third, or twenty-third time – well, not childbirth unless you’re part of that Duggar family and they really may be legitimately insane – at least some of them. But with teaching, people definitely teach for upwards of 20-25 years and that is 40-50 semesters or more). So, yeah. We remember the good, tend to play down or forget the bad and we go back the next time feeling like we have a good idea of what is coming, but not realizing our memories are all distorted somehow.
Well, that took a direction that I didn’t plan on at the start…but, that is the beauty of the Six Word Saturday!
