Work and Leisure in the Summer

During the nine month school year, I am so busy, I barely have time to go to the bathroom. Teaching my normal university load, with an extra class (for extra money of course), and two Saturday classes, and an online class, I simply have no time for being Mr. Nice Guy. But, now we are in the middle of the summer term, and it is very different. I only teach one class, and I have plenty of time to rest, plan for the fall term, and spend quality time (as Mr. Nice Guy of course) with my family. I'm grateful that there is a summer class for me to teach, but I wouldn't want to teach more than one. I go into the office in the morning Monday through Thursday, and I teach from 9:30 am until noon. Then I go home. It's that simple. There are only 10 students in the class, so class management is a breeze, and I don't collect homework in the summer term, so there is no homework to grade. I give a short quiz at the end of each week, and at the end of the sixth week, they take the final. Life is good! Now I have time to watch basketball on television, and I have time to play with my son more. I'll let you know when the fall term starts and I become a busy beaver again.
