It is the holiday season 2016. I am not sure what is wrong with me. I am definitely not in the Christmas spirit.
I don’t go out and enjoy various holiday events in my city. I spend my time in front of my computer. I am responding to emails from students, grading papers, and planning classes. Most of the stories that I have to tell are about my students.
Once again I have booked my flight to see my family. I thought I would purchase a book in anticipation of any flight delays. Since I have flown the past couple of years, I don’t expect any problems and know what to do.
My mood is anything but joyful. My mind is completely focused on doing what is needed to complete end-of-the-semester details before my flight leaves. That is probably understandable, but I have not even gone Christmas shopping yet. Simply put, I feel exhausted.
