I could tell you that I ran 3.5 miles and did 1/3 of a burpee mile yesterday. I could tell you I’m supposed to teach a university class in a couple weeks. I could tell you I have been corresponding with a double dutch group. Or that I am planning on seeing an opera this month. I could tell you all that, but really, all I can think about is SUMMMMMMMERRRRRRR.
Today was the first day of the last week of school. My students were miserable little adolescent jerks. The window shades were pulled down “to keep the temperature down,” but really it was so my wandering eyes wouldn’t get distracted by the perfect weather.
So yeah, I could talk about all my regular goals (that are mostly on track), but my summer bucket list is way more on the forefront of my mind right now.
