Never be afraid to sit a while and think.
No time to sit and think today... Unless it's about preparing for teaching. The dining room table is covered with Italian paperwork, and I'm crafting the term's schedule on the laptop. My type-A personality is quite satisfied to have all of this on paper rather than swimming around in my head... But I'm realizing that teaching is much, much more work than I'd anticipated. Kudos to all the teachers out there, you don't get nearly enough credit.
