A Day In the Life...

The days have been long and the exhaustion has been high. Usually I limit the amount of social engagements I let myself have in more stressful weeks but this week has included a social outing/evening every day of the week. This was finals week for my students so grades finally got calculated and transferred over. My week of finals as a student is next week (plus a make-up class since our Thurs night class was cancelled due to the crazy wind storm & power outages that Portland had) and the half-marathon is on Sunday. Seriously can't wait for a bit of down time...

Obviously it's been busier since I intended to post this actually on Tuesday, and since I didn't get to it til now I included Wednesday for fun too :)

  1. It's interesting to read about other people's days because they are SO different from person to person. Like I am probably up earlier than the average person but I definitely am done for the day by 9:30, and really I am done with work by 4:30 which isn't bad. Sounds like you are busy busy busy!
