First day of school.
Fresh without excitement.
Just remind myself, remove stress off my workload. Relax and enjoy it.
Because there is no end of work, but there is end in life.
These days reading brings a lot of peace to me, and I start to think how to write something simple and small.
Start with essays, along with my students.
What is essay? An essay is usually a short piece of writing which is often written from an author’s personal point of view. Essays can consist of a number of elements, including: literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author (quoted from wikipedia).
Then gradually challenge short stories.
I am like a toddler on the beach, tapping my toes into the foamed water, unaware whether it will be mild, chilly, or even biting.
Your last couple of lines really struck me. I love the image of a toddler on the beach. I hope school becomes more enjoyable for you. 🙂
