Planned the first unit for two of my courses.
Have a really good idea about where it goes next, as far as unit planning
Finished filming the Research Writing series, except for a tiny part about quoting vs. paraphrasing
Edited the Introduction videos
Expanded the Blank White Page project to two cohorts
And here are the things that are even more important:
Bonded with a friend and had the kind of conversations that define the next 30 years of our friendship, not what has already been.
Planned an epic roadtrip up the California coast to Seattle (with a day trip up to Victoria).
Took a walk late at night in Marin, with a good friend, and talked about everything we don't normally make time to talk about. And there were times of silence, listening to the owls and watching the bats fly over. And those silent times were just as important as the talking.
Started reading The Things They Carried. Not because I am teaching it. Just because I want to (okay, and Andrew assigned it to me). But 99% because I want to read it.
That last list is WAY more important than the first. And it's the reason I am having the best summer of my life.
