Break Really Begins Now

May 18th, 2012 at 09:03 am

Yesterday I pushed the button and graded the final students of the semester. Then I had a long meeting with the Study Abroad folks who went over the recruiting I need to do, the budget in place, and various other things like visa, forms, establishing a website. It looks like that will be an ongoing job until we actually begin.

I need to have at least six students sign up, and the cost gets cheaper for them with every additional student after that. I hoping the London Olympics gets people even more interested in the UK.

But this morning after DD went off to school, I went back to bed with a cup of coffee and a new volume of short stories. I read a terrific story, and then slept for over an hour. I think that's a suitable kickoff to summer break.

Now to clean and tackle the million things that didn't get done over the semester's chaos.
I feel energized!

    I would have given quite a bit for an extra hour of sleep and a good short story this morning, I will tell you that much! Wink Sounds delightful, and if it leads to feeling that energized, maybe I should try it. Too bad I have no insurance of a summer break this year... my final academic year lasts 17 months (!!!) from start to graduation. It's like water torture.
