I hate when I don’t do anything in particular with my summer vacations from teaching, so I usually organize things. So I’m studying German again this summer, and my capacity in this language is getting better and better.
The problem is that I never had that catch-up-sleep-as-much-as-you-want time that should begin any vacation worthy of its name. I keep waking up at a very reasonable 6:15 am, and have an unstressed breakfast with my partner. I leave the house at 7:30 take the train at 7:45 and arrive early for my class. I have a coffee before it starts.
But I’m sleepy nearly all the time, and when I nap, it’s just as if I didn’t do anything with my day. I feel all heavy and lethargic. I also need to be prepping classes, and I can’t seem to make time for it, what with homework, cooking dinner, getting in some yoga and exercise.
So I’m thinking I should be like cows, and have a cud chewing session. Not quite a nap, but just a stare off into space and let the time pass for a few minutes. I keep staring at Foro, wondering if he could give me some advice, but he remains silent on this matter. Have to figure this one out for myself.
