End of Break Blues

Why is it so hard to go back to the regularity of day to day work/school routines after a break? It doesn’t matter if you had a good break either. Why?

I like my work as a teacher, most of the time, but still the last day of my break always feels the same. It’s like when the alarm goes off and you hit snooze . . . just five more minutes. Actually, how about five more days? The only thing that gives me comfort is that my students are thinking the same thing.

Maybe sometime in the future I can work as a writer full-time then my days would be spent doing what I did on my break,writing, reading and thinking. How cool would that be?

  1. It’s amazing how hard it can be to carve out writing time even when you don’t have a regular, full-time job. Like today. It snowed and the driveway and patio needed to be shovelled and the birds fed. That was two hours gone, but it is beautiful outdoors right now. And the cardinals are brilliant against their white backdrop.

  2. It’s amazing how many things can pull us away from writing. I walked in the door from work today and was needed to fix some technology difficulties and before I knew it an hour and a half was gone. Ugh!
