Hopes of the first week of school
I hope… this week will be the last week I leave the house with a nervous stomach.
I hope… this week will be the last week I get regular stress-induced heartburn.
I hope… teaching on my second day goes a little more smoothly than my first.
I hope… my students respond to me.
I hope… the University wireless network gets its shit together.
I hope… I bring enough food for lunch and dinner on campus Tuesdays and Thursdays.
I hope… my student loan comes through soon.
I hope… I never have to park in the middle of nowhere again.
I hope… it’s always light out when I leave the house… though I doubt it will be come December.
I hope… I get enough sleep each night because these long days can be brutal.
I hope… that coffee pot in my office is functional.
