That's the noise my brain made today when coming back to reality. What did I write a few days ago? Never had a bad experience while teaching? Well, there it was today.
My colleague and I had planned this wonderful lesson together, with teach-teaching, powerpoint presentation and so on. I was all excited about it and was looking forward to this morning. But the lesson went into a different direction. The powerpoint presentation made them all stay in a lethargic position (ok, quite understandable considering it was 7.50 am), leaned back, just listening what great stories (?!) we have to tell them.
Then in the group work they didn't understand their task, just sat there doing nothing, wondering what fuzz we were making there up front.
Fortunately we have the next two lessons to make up for the one today. But - fortunately? Actually I have a lot of other things to do right now besides preparing the lessons. There are four seminar talks coming up...
Saturday we had a basketball game, and we scored a lot of points for once: 73! Just too bad that the other team got two more... It was a really brutal game, my arms and legs are quite bruised, and I was in such a bad mood afterwards.
I'm not saying I'm a bad looser - which I am, actually - but what annoyed me most was the unfairness with which we played, both teams. But that game was off-season (by the way, we are champion of the last season!), so it's ok.
Afterwards I took a bath and visited my parents over the weekend, which was really nice. It's a rare thing to happen these days, because I never really have time off during the weekend because I need to do all these assignments and talks. And I know that when I'm at home I don't do anything, I just relax. Though I always take my university stuff with me and think "ok, this time I'm gonna work at least a bit". Yeah right.
