I started my student teaching last Tuesday, though, and while it is a hoot (hoooooooot!) I am having a strange time adjusting to the fact that although I am getting up a full 4-5 hours earlier than usual, I actually have less time in the day to Get Crap Done. I hear you say, "huh?"
Here's that breakdown.
10am - Rise
12 Noon - Shine (shut up, it takes me awhile!)
9pm - Start Getting Shit DONE
2am - Bed.
5:55am - Alarm
6:15 - Rise
7:10 - Leave house
7:45 - Teach 1st period juniors
8:49 - Teach 2nd period freshies
9:54 - Prep, begin to glisten a little (depending on caffeine intake)
11:06 - Teach 4th period juniors
12:10 - Sigh with relief
1pm - Head home
8:30pm - Go to bed
Unless there's derby that night, in which case there is skating from 8-11pm and I finally fall into bed - after showering and eating everything in sight - around 12:15am, only to drag my ass out of bed 5 hours later and nap the next afternoon away. Thus with this schedule change have I lost all 5 of my prime Get Shit DONE hours and much of my shine. I imagine I'll get used to it, but as of right now I tend to wander about my little place losing everything that's not in plain sight and wondering whether it's 8:30 yet.
I did finish some knitting as well as half of my January spinning project. Seeing as today is the 25th, I should pull out the wheel, I suppose! There's chicken soup in the crock pot, Bones on Instant Watch, and clothes in the dryer. Maybe I'm getting the hang of this schedule after all.
