I get it now...maybe...that whole "recess" and "lunchtime" and if you were unlucky enough to have a school day extend through 3 p.m., an "afternoon break."
Those bells and super scheduled days are exactly what I need to keep myself from working through such magically restful things as breaks.
Is that why my mom loved working at a school? They took their daily break at 11:10 a.m. That was the time 3rd period began....I think...but no matter what part of the school they were in, they could hear the bells. Maybe that's why I was so enamored of the striking ship's clock? You could figure out what time it was then as well and whether or not your watch-shift had begun or was about to end. And my long-ago lost Casio digital watch with all the different timers, alarms, and stopwatches (possibly 2 or 3 of each). I knew exactly how late I'd be to classes and how long I had until my work day was over...I'm not at all motivated to schedule in breaks via Outlook or any thing so goofy, get...but I may be getting there.
I have a number of posts I meant to put up a while ago...there's a hat to show off, an award I've been given, I just found out I won a contest! But neither the time nor the motivation has been with me since my last entry/rant. If I were not on a break right now, I'd add that I need to get back to those folks, but that would be talking about work, and we're on a break right now. Did I mention break?
I am two people this week. Maybe more like 1.75. Next week, I'll be 2.5. I will need to highly schedule myself so I don't go insane with work, cuz yesterday? I put in 10 hours, and it still wasn't quite enough. Yup, those bells seem like such a good idea right now.
