Sometimes I feel like I am two different people. I have grind mode me and relaxation me. When I am in grind mode, I wake up early, workout, run, get to work early, and am extremely goal-oriented. When I am in relaxation mode though, different story. I like to lounge around and watch Netflix with my girlfriend, mess around with my pets, and generally try to avoid doing anything super serious.

As a teacher, I think I am a bit of an adrenaline junkie. Teaching can be such a rush because it requires one to use every ounce of spirit, intellect, and emotion at times. I think that is why I enjoy it. It is the same reason I enjoy snowboarding at 40 mph down near vertical surfaces, it’s the adrenaline baby!


At some point though, I have to give myself a break and that is something I have somewhat mastered as well. The art of being lazy and unproductive, being able to shut off that type-A personality for a bit, before it runs one into the ground is absolutely essential!
