Today was a really, REALLY long day at work.  I was up at 4:45 this morning, after having gone to bed at around 12:00 a.m., and waking up every couple of hours throughout the night.  I knew the nap I took yesterday after hiking was too long, but I was exhausted.  Very much so.  And the sleep felt amazing.  I guess I should have expected a broken night’s sleep after that, but hey-ho.

It was a launch day at the Orchard today.  I work for Apple, but not for much longer.  I’m trying to find my way out of the fruit vendor’s grips, and into a better situation.  As I wrote up another lesson plan for my class tomorrow, I was gently reminded that drafting a method of teaching, plotting out a discussion, with interactions and things for my students to do, is easy.  I can manage this quite well.  It’s second-nature.  In fact, I’d even go so far as to say it’s in my nature.  It’s my vocation.  It’s what I should be doing instead of counting apples in an orchard.

In any regard, today was a long, arduous event, and I’m glad to be only a few feet away from my bed.  I need the rest.
