After Labor Day
It's why I became a teacher after college graduation. I figured out that I could stand nine highly regulated months if I could have three highly unregulated ones to make up for it.
Today I feel the back-to-work burden in my soul. Maybe it's because I'm still half-exhausted from the wedding. Or maybe it's because on the day after Labor Day, the traditional back-to-school day, regimentation is in the very air we breathe.
Since I just completed a major project it feels like this should be at the beginning of relaxation not the end of it. But when the work engrosses, these feelings pass. And it will. I just have to give it time.
