Teaching fills my life, but for once it does not consume my life. Maybe because I'm here in this town alone while my wife is a few hundred miles away I just don't have enough of a life to consume. Maybe I'm just enjoying the freedom of being done with my PhD. Actually seeing ths final bound version was a wonderful experience - to be done after so long. Sure I have papers to write and a new research to design and carry out...but for the moment I can't help but enjoy the freedom of not having that great weight hanging over my head.
Anyway, I've been at work for almost fourteen hours now, so it's about time I headed home.
