The academic year starts this week at my institution of higher education. Yesterday was "move-in" day (in pouring rain). Today is opening convocation and a community picnic (also likely in pouring rain). And classes start on Wednesday.
Although I am a 12 month employee, summers are less structured and I've taken a fair amount of time off. I'll miss that.
But, with the academic year, there is better structure for my exercise program -- my favorite gym on campus has extremely limited summer hours -- and I simply didn't get to the main fitness center this summer at all. And it's cooler, so I'm more likely to walk back and forth to work. (Although not in this pouring rain.) Today sometime, I will block off my workout times in my calendar in the hopes that I can hold on to those times.
I have a full agenda for the year and I'm looking forward to it!
