I have every expectation that this week is going to be a little bit crazy – if not downright surreal – and for a lot of varying reasons, too.  I’m also pretty sure that there’s almost nothing I’ll be able to write about without crossing my own ethical lines.  I’ve got to tell you, tomorrow is the first day that I’m actually hesitant about going into work.  Sigh.

In other news, I am officially registered for the writing workshop at Prestigious Boarding School.  I signed up as a commuter, though, so I won’t have to stay in the dorms (trust me, even at PBS, dorms are still dorms.  I’m pretty sure I’ll be grateful for my own bed after the days’ activities).  I’m certain I’m going to learn a lot, and while I’m a little scared of the work (there’s going to be a LOT of work), I’m also really looking forward to the opportunity to stretch my writing (and teaching) practice.  I’ll probably do much of my homework right here, so you get to share with me.  Watch this space.

  1. Good luck with work. I totally understand being a bit afraid of this week. It’s the last full week for us and since I’m not there every day I’m a bit scared of what kind of craziness I’ll have to witness.

  2. Can’t wait to read your work, Chili! 😀

    Heads up – Senior week will be crazy. A lot of us will think that we don’t have to do anything anymore after portfolios are due, plus all of the other students will be crazy.

    If you’ve stuck around this long (since school has a history of losing teachers) you can make it through this. I have faith.

  4. At the end, you may feel you should have been teaching them.
