A case of the lazies

I just finished my last class of the week. You know, the busier I am, the less I mind teaching and whatnot. But now I'm down to two classes, both of which only have the final exam left, and I just don't feel like doing anything at all. It just goes to show that there's a fine line between tons of free time (which we usually have) and too much free time (which is now). Once I cross that line, I go into lazy mode. It doesn't help that all the students have gone into hiding in order to study for exams. In the past I've always been able to count on them to help me fill my free time. Now it's just me and this blasted internet. Seems to be mostly working for the moment. Mostly.

So it doesn't look like my travel plans are going to work out quite as planned. I'm developing a great track record here, aren't I? I'm still going to travel, it's just a matter of where, when, with whom, and for how long. I definitely want to stay in China if possible because I'm planning on visiting a friend in Japan during the May holiday. I need to save up some money plus I want to get in some Chinese sites this year. I'm not going to begin listing the possibilities until I know something more definite, so for now just know that I'll be done with classes next Wednesday and after that I hope to travel since I won't have class again until after March 5th. Yay! Just in time for my birthday! I'm really hungry now, so I'm going to hunt down some breakfast. Have a great Friday!

I know exactly what you mean about too much free time! Hope all goes well with the last two classes.
