The next three weeks of my life are wide open. Wide. Freaking. Open.
We just got the news today that due to equity issues, we cannot expect students to do elearning; therefore, we are totally off the hook for the next three weeks.
On the one hand, WOW! How exciting to have three weeks of time open up before you, right?
On the other hand, WOW! What is the aftermath going to be like? What if we go on longer than three weeks (a distinct possibility)? What are my students going to do for the next three weeks?
I love being home, but I’m going to get lonely after about a week.
I plan to make a schedule for myself, but it’s still just weird. I can’t really go anywhere. I’ll still have to run to the grocery store here and there, but that’s pretty much it. I guess my house can get super deep cleaned in the next few weeks.
It’s just a lot to take in. It feels different than summer break. I don’t have the anticipation of school starting again, because I don’t know when it will or what we’ll be doing, but I know I have something to do. I don’t have trips planned (the one I did has been canceled), I don’t have breakfast or lunch dates with my friends, I don’t even have trips to the gym. I’m literally just going to be here. In my house. With my dogs. Doing…what exactly?
I see a lot of reading, writing, yoga-ing, walking, snuggling, eating (oops), and online shopping in my future. Uh oh.
Stay healthy, everyone!
