I am now heading into week 7 of my teaching career and I find it hard to believe that we have travelled this far. The days and weeks are evaporating while the to do lists grow steadily. I think that I have been balancing it all quite well yet there is a nagging thought that pops up occasionally. What about me?
It could be that this is the longest term that has resulted in my time being gulped away. It could be that I am learning every day. It could be that that’s the way it is. However, I know that this needs to change as I realise that I am denying myself some of the things that make me me. Half term break soon but 8 weeks without breathing is dangerous. Make time to breathe and engage with your situation on your terms (occasionally).
