I hope I get my sleep schedule under control by Monday. Last night, I was tired, so went to bed at around 9pm - and promptly woke up at 2:48am. I laid there until nearly 4, then just decided to get up and get some work done. I wrote a letter to parents and e-mailed it to myself, then found some stuff for planning. Luckily, my alarm just went off so now I would have been up anyway, and I'm going to head to the gym and burn off this nervous energy that I have.
Today is the first day back. I'll see a lot of friends I haven't seen in months, as well as get class lists and a parking spot and my faculty guide. The year will start to feel "real." My classroom is more than halfway set up and I want to spend the bulk of the next few days planning lessons and units rather than putting up posters.
Now, I'm tired again.
By the way, the Tigers won their 81st game yesterday, guaranteeing their first .500 season since 1993. The last time the Tigers won 81 games, I was a Junior in high school. The infield was Cecil Fielder, Lou Whitaker, Alan Trammell, and Travis Fryman, while Mickey Tettleton was our fulltime DH and Tony Phillips played everywhere. The only player still active from that team? Chris Gomez, who has played for the Orioles the last couple of years.
