- First class of the day. Everyone looks tired. I know I am. Here we go, though.

- Eat (standing up).
- Wash dishes.
- Review lesson plan for evening class.

- If I’m lucky, I’m there a few minutes early. If I’m not, I’m running in the door three steps ahead of my students.
- Head back home.
- Get the morning’s materials together so I don’t forget anything.
- Drink a glass of wine.
- Prepare clothes for tomorrow so when I wake up in the dark I can find them.
- Collapse into a coma-like state. 5:15 will be here before you know it.

If I’m really lucky, a quick dip in the pool.
