Pluck and luck

I hate spring.  It’s the Sunday night of the academic year, when anxieties about not having done enough rear their ugly heads.  (Actually, looking at that post from almost seven and a half years ago reminds me of how much better my life is now.  Maybe things aren’t that bad.)

Today’s bright spot was learning that the junior we nominated for an NCTE achievement award in writing received a “superior writing” recognition, the first one we’ve had in several years.  Yay.

There were other bright spots, to be honest.  I’m just feeling kind of stressy right now.  Too much going on.
