Remember This?

Work today was rough. I had my last lecture on the endocrine system and then I proctored an exam and gave makeup quizzes. I went from one room to the next, hurrying to get papers put away and tests into testing centers. By the time I got in my car to come home, my skin tingled with the feeling of having too much to do, and I knew once I made it to the house, I'd have dinner to start and grades to put into the computer before the kids came home. I felt the need to speed on the road, just to get some of my energy find relaxation where none had been. But I don't speed, so instead, I sat back with good smoke and rolled down the windows.

Okay, I don't smoke, either. Instead, I took a swig of water and turned on the 1980s rewind. In one moment, I found relaxation in the form of laughter.

Now, don't get me wrong...just like this blog will not become a recipe blog, this blog will also not become overrun with YouTube videos. But this classic one-hit-wonder pulled me back to another life, so to speak, one in which my only care in the world was whether or not my little sister still adored me.
