There doesn’t seem to be much I can say about August — except that I haven’t been blogging! This is shaping up to be the worst month here since I started in 2005. I don’t seem to have much energy or enthusiasm for much of anything, though.
This month I gave up hope of finding another job for the fall, and I have been busy trying to get ready for the switch from ESL to Developmental Writing instructor. It won’t be bad, but I will have to spend much of this year looking for a job as there is no way I will get an extension on my contract here. It has been a little discouraging hearing how wonderful my replacement in ESL is, but that will die down as we all get busy with the semester. At least I hope so!
Work on the book has slowed down as I got involved in preparing for classes to start. I hope to devote at least 10 hours a week to writing after school starts this week. If I use that time well, it should be finished by the first of the year. That would be nice.
So all in all, it hasn’t been a very exciting month. Not much going on. Not much enthusiasm for anything. But I hope that will change before long.
