Teaching does require a lot of hours but I'm always looking for ways to combine work with fun- sitting on my deck while writing lesson plans or grading at a coffee shop. Speaking of, I need a new favorite cafe, maybe you can recommend your favorite spot to work or hang out?
When I start getting overwhelmed I unwind by getting out some energy. I love yoga and practice semi-regularly. Other times I just want to jump around my living room looking ridiculous, or at least that's how I think it appears from the outside when I play Just Dance. I've beaten all my friends so far and am always looking for new competition.
-Making my own fun, I'm easily amused.
-Growing plants, they keep trying to take over my space.
-Building stuff, I love putting together furniture and I was thrilled when I had an excuse to buy a saw to add to my toolkit. I almost wish I'd bought a house that needed a lot of work since I enjoy frequenting Home Depot. Almost.
