And thus the honeymoon ends.
This morning, I woke up to grey skies and an acute case of homesickness. It never got better from there.
I don’t want this to be a whinge-fest – already did that with the hubs and the BFF – but suffice to say, my tasks were relentless and pointless and were made even more dismal by a lovely Connecticut rain that just refused to unclench its grasp over us all day. This threw a kibosh on much of the planned activities and I do not envy the RAs their charges tonight. Imagine coming in from countries far and wide and spending your first night in registration then your second day tromping from class to class in soggy socks.
No, I’m not that noble. I’m really not thinking of students in the face of my own misery. I’m just practicing a bit of Schadenfreude to stem the rising tide of I don’t wanna be here-ness.
Okay, I really have nothing left to say. I’m tired. And damp. And probably rank. And I’m still on duty till 11pm. I guess I’m just not as young as I used to be and this is my body telling me that I’m crashing. Hard.
In any case, how’s about you all just enjoy some pictures and pray for better days that don’t include insufferable bouts of self-pity. (Gads! I’m irritating even myself re-reading this!)
