I Can Explain

So I have to apologize for my prolonged absence. But I can explain, really. Why haven't I been writing?

First off, I have been busier than ever before. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays I'm teaching in the after school test prep program (thrilling tales in your future!). On top of that I've been staying later than ever planning, grading, charting, etc. It feels like I've gotten to a point where now that I have some energy left over at the end of the teaching day I'm determined to expend whatever's left before I leave my school.

Secondly, I've been somewhat lacking inspiration. Which in the case of my past writing is a very good thing. Management is no longer the daily struggle (to put it nicely) that inspired constant reflection and soul-searching. The other major source of inspiration - administrative shenanigans - also seems to be largely absent from my new school.

These are problems I'm obviously happy to have. I'm working harder than ever. I'm free from a lot of daily dysfunction and drama. So from here on out my inspiration will (knock on wood) have to come from elsewhere. Stay tuned.
