Last Minute Frenzy


Slice of Life Challenge Day #22

As the teachers were anxiously counting down the minutes left until spring break starts, there was a sense of anticipation in the air. Once my students had left and I was left alone in the classroom, I did not feel as relieved as I should. I still had a lot of work to get done. Work that I didn’t want to think about during the vacation.

I needed to finish my lesson plans for the following week and try to organize my thoughts and prepare for a few new units coming up. Originally, I thought I could leave right after school ends. Unfortunately, there always seems to be tasks that come up at the end of the school day. Two hours later, I got to pack up my things and finally leave school.  I packed a few teacher books, some student work and a children’s book I’m hoping to read over break. I realize that I am probably being over ambitious considering I will be in Vietnam for most of my break.  2 more days until I leave for Hanoi! Hopefully I’ll be able to slice from there. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Anyone else doing something exciting for their spring break? 🙂

    Love Vietnam – enjoy! I felt myself connecting to your experiences – waiting in anticipation for the break, waiting for the last minutes of the day … and then the realization that there is still work to do (or we take it home!) Here’s wishing you a relaxing and rejuvenating break (although those might not be the right word for Vietnam) – perhaps enlightening and enjoyable!

    Nothing as exciting as your trip! Enjoy and fingers crossed you will slice too! I stayed an extra two hours after school today as well. Just to get reorganized and ready for our return in a week. I was not going to bring a bag home, but ended up throwing in some prof. reads and a stack of papers to review and organize. I just couldn’t leave it behind! Happy and safe travels!

      bodia. Trying to reply on an iPhone and suddenly asked to login. Enjoy your travels. I was trying to explain to family and friends back home that this break doesn’t feel as triumphant in the tropics. You don’t feel like you’re emerging from a wintry cocoon in the same way somehow. Take care!

    Have a great time in Hanoi! Take loads of pics to share with us! My spring break is next week. I remember last spring break I was in Seoul, where I met you. 🙂 This time I’m off to Cairo!!

    Enjoy Hanoi, it was an interesting city. Will you have a chance to get out of Hanoi? Halong Bay is so cool! The best part of my time in Vietnam.
