I am tired.
I am just so tired that, save for a few things, I've lost interest in many things that have always interested me. I haven't had 8 straight hours of sleep in the past two weeks. No, I'm not exactly complaining, I'm just saying.
What I want most right now is one work-free, stress-free week in some place that's relaxing and where I can just read the whole day. Sometimes, when I'm just about to sleep, I think of this "vacation" and I feel a little less tired and stressed out. But, that also makes me realize how badly I want that. Oh well, I guess, everything will just have to wait until the semester ends.
I just hope that our Department Chairperson allows me to take some rest in the summer. Some people at the College are saying that contractual faculty members will be "forced to teach" this summer what with the new administration and all. I think I've expressed time and again how much I love teaching, but I just really need a vacation so I can rest and "re-charge" because, honestly, I feel like a mobile phone whose battery is just so low it can barely function. The last thing I want right now is to be burnt-out. I've gone through that before and, God, it wasn't at all nice! I. Need. That. Vacation.
By the way, some people have been asking me if this blog has Archives (where all previous entries can be found and viewed) and Links. Yes, this blog does have these things. They're on the left sidebar. Please click on the Mermaid icon (Into the Ocean) for my Archives, the Girl's Face icon (Into Blogging) for the Blog Links, and the Spider Web icon (Into the Web) for Links to some of my favorite websites.
For those who've been asking how I actually managed to pull this blog's design, I'd like to, once again, say that all credit goes to Ala. She designed this blog and how she was able to create something like this amazes me, too. :)
For the nth time, ARIGATOU Ala-chan!
