My trip to New York is now less than one week away.
My last day at work is now only two weeks and two days away.
The first day of classes (and my first day teaching) is now 26 days away.
I can’t believe how quickly this summer has passed. I feel like first year JUST ended. It feels like just yesterday I came in for my first day of work, sat down at my desk, looked at the stack of files and assignments and felt extremely overwhelmed. I’ve come so far from that first couple of weeks where the research and not knowing what I was doing completely wiped me out every day. And now, when I’m closer to getting the hang of things, I am going to move on to another new and terrifying job, new classes, and new roles in the organizations in which I am involved.
My comfort zone keeps getting closer and closer, only to slip through my hands. Oh, well. It sure keeps life interesting!
