I have been feeling the pressure to make the most of my time with the beginning of the school year just a few weeks away. There is a lot of uncertainty around campus -- lots of changes have already happened and more are probably coming.
I'm doing my best not to get dragged into any trouble that isn't in my power to control. Instead I have been doing what I can for me -- making my syllabus for each class and getting things out early, submitting an article for possible publication, working on my promotion portfolio. Just keep swimming!
I have also been doing some literal swimming. Sunday I will be doing a mile swim for a triathlon relay and I did another practice Tuesday. I really pushed myself and was right behind one of the faster swimmers. I woke up a bit sore the next day.
I'll be taking it easy for a couple of days leading up to the race to be able to do my best. And I need to remember to enjoy this time too, since I will be very busy when the semester starts. Sometimes it's okay to float.
