Return to Normalcy
Last night David I went to Cafe Felix with some friends -- Allison, Sara, and Josh -- from my former Ph.D. program. It was so nice to actually be able to go out on a weeknight, which I haven't been able to do for the past five weeks because I had been devoting every spare minute to studying for my Kaplan training. But I had my last official training session on Friday night, so when Sara called on Sunday and asked if David and I wanted to join her, Josh, and Allison at Cafe Felix on Monday night, I was able to suppress that knee-jerk "have to study" reaction and say yes. I won't actually start teaching for Kaplan at least until March, so in the meanwhile I'll just be a normal person with one job and have evenings and weekends to myself. I never thought I would be so grateful to "only" work full time. I'll have to be sure to make full use of these next few weeks before I return to my two-job lifestyle.
