So, in an attempt to balance my life better, I did some “fun” things this weekend. I am feeling a little bit guilty because I still need to grade 15 essays, come up with plans for my seniors, fold laundry, shower and get a decent amount of sleep. Yet, I’m so glad that I did what I did this weekend because it felt so nice. To be a normal 26 year old and have a little bit of fun.
Friday night, I attended a dodge ball tournament that was put on by the sophomore class at the high school where I am working. I was one of the 2 female teachers on the teacher dodge ball team. And it was a lot of fun, way more fun than I was expecting to have and we got 2nd place – only losing to the same team and beating every other team we played. After, we went out for a beer, which was nice. But it meant that I didn’t get home until later than I had planned.
Saturday, I woke up and did not get to work like I wanted to. I got caught up in playing stupid games on my tablet and trying to decide if I was going to go for my run or not. I didn’t. Instead, I finally got started on grading the essays that I needed to grade. I only got one class graded – I had wanted to get two classes graded.
Then, I went out to the hockey game because I had this plan and I love hockey and I wanted to go. We went out after. And it was so fantastic. Once again, I was out a little later than I should have been and had to be up extremely early the next morning. So I was glad that I was out and hanging out with friends – and had such a great night, but I really should have gotten more sleep.
Sunday was a whirlwind. I had a ton to do. And clearly, haven’t finished just yet (it’s Sunday night right now). So, I’m going to go and try to get some more work done while I watch Revenge – a guilty pleasure of mine. Hopefully, I won’t be up too late because I have a very busy week ahead of me that will be ending in my going to see my best friend in Texas.
So, this weekend may not have been very balanced – or as balanced as it used to be. It seems that in trying to balance, I overcompensated. But sometimes overcompensation is exactly what is needed.
I need to get going and get back to work.
Have a great week everyone!
