I got home just after ten o'clock last night. My classmates started looking at me crazy when I talked about how late it was to be out and about. It was 9:15 and we were being dismissed from class. What I meant was, it felt ungodly to be out and about on a school night for some purpose other than a teacher's fun-- at the bar, somebody's bornday, finishing up a late dinner, getting off a plane just in time for some ZZZs before work...
"Good night" has a whole new meaning. Last time I said that to colleagues, it was really the afternoon, as is customary in NYC school culture. Good night at 3:45 pm. Good night. I get it though.
This whole teaching a full day at work and then taking two long classes back to back takes some getting used to. Thankfully my second professor let us out 25 minutes early. I am grateful for her understanding. After all, I do live in Brooklyn, and class is in upper Manhattan.
On a productivity note, a classmate shared with me Notability. I actually had it downloaded already on my iPad, but I didn't realize its full capacity and benefits. I get it now. Organize articles and notes by class, highlight text and write on the articles just like paper. Only thing now is I need to recover my stylus, the one I never used.
Will do in time.
