Why I Like Windows that Open

It was warm today for November, in the mid-50s or higher.  The school building thinks it is heating, not cooling, season and cannot adjust to unseasonable weather.  The classrooms were uncomfortably warm, with no relief.  That, combined with a large number of illness-related absences, a low-blood sugar student pandemic, and my greater-than-usual fatigue made for a long day in front of the room.  There was no fresh air anywhere.  I was dying by degrees, day-dreaming of cold drinks and crisp November weather.  A low-energy, uncomfortable, unsatisfying day of teaching.

  1. Try living in a dorm that shuts the A/C off and turns the heat on as soon as the calendar hits October! In fairness though, it couldn't be that difficult to just turn the heat in the building down, could it?

  2. As I read back through this, it's a relieving thought that professors too have days that are just plain difficult to get through.

  3. Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really
    make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Bless you
