|Go Team Janeway!|
Not exactly what I had in mind when we planned our move here, but I guess it's a consequence of working so much. Today was my day off. I taught extra corporate classes this morning (took from 8:30 AM - 1:30 PM) to make up for the day I was sick, then came home and slept from 3 PM to 10 PM because of a bad night's sleep on Wednesday. Now here I am online, ta-da, trying to make up for neglecting this blog.
I've taken drastic measures and requested a cut in hours next semester (from 30 classroom hours/week to 20/week). The most exciting part of this is that I won't be working the dreaded Sundays anymore...5 classes back to back with an unpaid hour sneakily built into the schedule...shudder. I am seriously seriously seriously looking forward to this, especially since it represents a significant decrease in the number of lesson planning hours needed (I like to think of those as my "work for free" hours). My job is really enjoyable and I usually have a good time teaching, and the key to enjoying it more?: do it less.
In other news, I've found coconut milk! It's at the Billa near 23 Серпня. Thanks to shiitaki mushrooms picked up during a previous (and massive) scouting expedition at Caravan, this tasty Thai soup was born.
|One could hardly even notice that the milk's best buy date was in September.|
|Obviously we drink too much tea. This is a couple weeks of drinking water, lovingly lugged home by yours truly. I miss cars.|
