Okay so yesterday I realized my backpack sooooo heavy. I have two course books I haven’t touched since last month that I thought I’d work on during break (removed cause I know I won’t). But the backpack still felt heavy.
Other things in there were MacBook, tablet, charger cords, and a huge trilogy book! There were small items in there, too.
I haven’t used a Kindle or Any ebook app since maybe 2-3 years ago. I download then remove it. I prefer the printed book more than digital. I can feel it. I can turn the pages. I know the actual number of pages I read for the book.
I gave in! I removed the hard copy of three part trilogy and ordered from iBooks a copy for $4.99. I thought iBooks had a read-aloud??? Not for this book 😦 at least not the one I ordered. I think Kindle had one. I guess it’s ok. I tend to drift when I hear it anyways. It’s either too fast or too slow. Never just right for me.
So I freed up space. My course I’m taking ends in August. I haven’t once touched the book since last month. There’s a $300 cancellation fee if I cancel and there’s an extra fee if I go beyond August. I’m so stupid signing up for this course. At that time, I was thinking it would be good. My Dad would be proud of me. Now I’m thinking, I want to just quit
Oh well. Any advices for the journey ahead? Teachers at work were complaining how their schedules got changed because of me. I scheduled this last month. And it’s not a fun vacation when you’re going to see your hometown that’s bottled with memories of someone you recently lost. One teacher who been whispering all week to another teacher (and I knew they were talking about me) finally said out loud to another teacher right in front of me how she has family coming over from different areas. Just the day before she had a phone call for MORE family coming. The teacher asked are you gonna take off? She said, I can’t take off. They won’t let me because she’s leaving tomorrow. I just shrugged and looked away saying, I planned this last month.
You are supposed to plan ahead of time. I did so why should I feel bad cause one teacher wants to make it clear to me her schedule changed because of me? Why should I feel bad another wanted to take off because of me? Besides, this teacher asking for today off has a one to two week vacation already set for next month. Things will happen.
Should I feel bad?
