The start of 8 hard weeks.

Well this week starts it for me. I work full time as the director of the technology group at a liberal arts college. I also teach for them. I am teaching 2 land based classes for the next 8 weeks. One of those is an MBA class which is pretty content heavy. I am also teaching a course online. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I will be on campus from 7:30am until 10:00pm. The first class starts at 5:15 and the second one doesn't end until 10:00. I have a one hour commute from the farm to the college.
I have done this before, and it probably is out of some misplaced loyalty to the students that I am doing it again. (I also want to go the STL Card spring training in FL, so the money will help). I will probably sneak a vacation day or two in sometime during the semester to recover.

Sounds like you have one busy schedule lined up, take some break time for yourself, if only for a few hours, don't get burned out with overloads.

I don't think your loyalty is misplaced ( if you would ask me )
I'm sure your students will appreciate your extra efforts!
And, like Patria said, take good care of yorself and you'll survive.. LOL
