Spring is here and Summer is two months away. I know I am ahead here but thinking about Summer gets me excited because Summer means the end of the school year. Yesterday was just awful. No matter what I did, nothing seemed to be going right. I know everyone is tired but I really need this school year to be over.
Anyway, let’s talk about Summer. It isn’t my favorite season for running, but I don’t hate it anyway.
🌞 End of the school year – It has been an awful year. It has been my worst year of teaching. Part of it is the number of students I have but also the expectations from administrators. Tests, tests, and tests. Oh, and let’s not forget teaching the curriculum and the priority standards. Oh, and make sure we give grades each quarter. It makes no sense. It is really hard to accurately assess the students. By the way, my last day is June 9th. I know technically it isn’t Summer but it still counts. Also, I will be teaching summer school but at least it will be with different students and curriculum.
🌞 Running in shorts and short sleeve shirt – I wrote the same thing in my post about Spring. I love running in shorts. I dislike running in tights with a long sleeve shirt AND a jacket. The less the better. It gets me in a better mood and more motivated to run. Gotta keep going with my run streak! Today is day #231.
🌞 Reading more books – I love to read! I am excited to sit out in the balcony or on the sofa with a glass (or two) of wine. Please send me your book recommendations.
🌞 Spending more time with mom – I feel so lucky that I still have my mom. While sometimes it is so hard to take care of an elderly person, my sisters and I are doing the best we can. Depending on how things are with the pandemic, we will either spend HOURS on the balcony listening to music and talking or hopefully visiting family. I would love to take her on a short getaway.
🌞 Relax and maybe sleep in – Many days I want to do “nothing”. Well, what I mean by that is sitting on the sofa while I read or watch TV (so many shows to watch). I know in the Summer I have to run early in the morning to avoid the heat. However, there are some days when I am so tired and just want to stay in bed and catch up on sleep. If that happens then I will just run in the evening.
What are you looking forward to this summer? Any summer plans?
