Monday night status update

Reading and grading essays
Drinking beer.
This one here. Christmas beer! It tastes kind of strange actually.
I’m not going to bed until I’ve finished all the grading for the term. Not much left though, 7 short essays.
I don’t have to hand in the grades until tomorrow night – before midnight. But it will be so nice waking up tomorrow not having to do any assignment/essay reading.
Christmas vacation is just around the corner. Yay!

Back to the essays.

I want the world to stop

Every day I get some blog post ideas. But when it comes to it I simply seem to be unable to write. I’m having hard time these days focusing and formulating sentences.

The song of the day: Belle and Sebastian – I want the world to stop

Let me step out of my shell
I’m wrapped in sheets of milky winter disorder
Let me feel the air again, the talk of friends
The mind of someone my equal

I have the feeling that this will be on repeat for the rest of the week.
I’m very musically autistic. Last week I only listened to the song I posted here below, “Home”. Over and over and over again. Hardly anything else. And now I feel I’m done with that. I guess Belle and Sebastian are next in line.
Well, gonna go press that replay button again!

realizations and Edward Sharpe

The teachers’ work room on a Wednesday morning.
The physics teacher next to me looking at excel documents, formulas and calculations.
I’m sitting, feet up on my desk, reading a short story that I’m thinking about letting my students read.

I’m realizing, more every day, that I chose the right subject to study at university. Although I didn’t feel that way at all for the first year or so at uni. And I still don’t know what I will do with this BA in English.  I won’t be a teacher forever I think.
Still – it feels good to be content about the decisions I’ve made.

LOVE this song.
It was on repeat at my house for a few weeks this summer. While I sat by the computer writing the thesis.
I still like it so much. It makes me smile and want to dance and sing very loudly.
