The semester starts tomorrow. I'm prepared, but I'm not ready at all. I have my first week's lesson plans made, with the option of shifting things as I need to. I have all my books, and I am going to have many shit-tons of reading on top of my grading (of which there is more, because the language program coordinator got rid of most of the auto-graded (multiple choice etc) assignments and replaced them with free response, which takes 3x as long to grade.)

I'm not quite sure when I'm going to sleep.

My new apartment is nice so far. The property managers are very helpful and are going through and fixing everything the previous property managers never bothered fixing (or fixed badly). The central a/c is a huge plus over my old apartment.

And I joined my local roller derby team. Partly because my friend said I should try it during new skater boot camp, partly because describing a sport as "roller skating with violence" is fun, and partly because the logo is super bad ass.

I'm going to review my plans for tomorrow and the next day then try to finish one of the books for one of my classes (it's really short, and I'm already halfway through).
