september??


I'm Feeling: a little worn out, but good
Background Noise: I'll Fly Away by Jars of Clay

I cannot believe it's already September. What in the world? When I was driving home from work the other day, I saw my first tree of the season with red leaves. I love fall, but the sight made me a tiny bit sad - I felt like things were going too fast. I love my life, but sometimes I feel that there are so many things going on that I don't have the time to stop and appreciate any of them. I know that's not really completely true, but it feels that way sometimes.

I taught my first solo college class yesterday - my freshman seminar on going to law school. It's mildly terrifying to have these students looking to you to provide them insight and knowledge - but I think it'll be really fun. I had 18 students, I was able to remember everyone's name by the end of the class, and I had a few people say that they were really looking forward to the rest of the course. All seem like good things - and next week, I have 2 guest speakers, so I barely have to talk at all! :) Even better.

Mark is sick, which is sad - he almost never gets sick. He was in bed when I came home from work, and stayed there until 7:00. Poor guy - pray that his body heals quickly!!

Where were you yesterday? I thought maybe you left for the weekend. Nothing exciting happened worth blogging about? Glad you're back!

I didn't go anywhere - I just got really busy! :) Teaching took me out of the office at about 2:15, and since my morning was hectic, it just got skipped... it is nice to be missed, though. :)

Glad to hear your class went well...it has helped me knowing that however little I think I know, they know incredibly less!
