I've noticed an odd similarity between running cross country and teaching these past few weeks. In high school I ran cross country (I medaled one time.. on the JV team... no biggie:) ). Every single meet we were encouraged to run so hard that we were literally wobbling around due to exhaustion by the time we finished. We were encouraged to give our all and to come out at the end knowing that we did our best.
I have been feeling pretty similar to that end of the race feeling these past few days. By the end of the day after a long day of laughing with kids, passing out art supplies, and teaching new concepts, I am usually so beat! I guess that means I am giving my all teaching right? (and I am loving every minute of it)
On days like these I typically allow myself to indulge in one of three things... who am I kidding usually I allow myself to do all three. I let myself eat frozen cookies out of my freezer, I walk around the local thrift store and look at every single item in order to truly zombify my brain, and I snuggle up in bed with my puppy and a cup of coffee. Lately I have also added in watching hours of America's Next Top Model, which has been pretty exciting. It's usually a nice reboot to my system.
What do you do on your sleepy days?
