And summer ends

Today I sat at a desk at school for the first time in... Well, I had a meeting a few weeks ago so I did it then, but it had been a while. It is September. School is back in session.

It's a weird feeling. Not one I like. This is my tenth summer ending in Japan and it always feels the same. A bit of nervousness about going into the classroom to teach. A bit of wondering about the future. A little bit of longing for winter break. Hey, I'm human.

I feel sad. I need to keep on keeping on, and not let the sadness get to me. I have to do what needs to be done.

It's time to do.
