Will I lose all research credibility forever if I admit that being back in class is energizing? That I'm enjoying the students so far? That so far it's fun?
I know--ask me again in March how energizing it is. And part of that energy is getting a time-sucking monkey off my back, the monkey being a long piece of writing that drained a lot more time and energy than it was worth over the past few months. Compared to that, prepping to teach seems like floating around in the Wizard of Oz's balloon.
