I’m currently teaching my first graduate level course online. I was hired quite late in the year, so didn’t have as much time as I would have liked to prepare and get organized. In fact, I’m still putting up new content and just trying to stay several weeks ahead of the students. I feel like I’m tired all the time, not because I’m necessarily working so hard, but because the pressure and stress I’m putting on myself is making me tired. Also because I wake up at night and think about the next thing I want to remember to do.
I am trying to be like the ant and the ram in “High Hopes.” I am trying to be the Little Engine that Could. “I think I can, I think I can. . .”
