(Apologies for the delay in replying. I had visions of getting all the Day in the Life comments taken care of at the same time but that didn't happen. Hell, I still have four more days to share!)

That sense of serendipity in a live setting is one I consciously try to bring to my teaching. Maybe I couldn't teach any other way, at least now that making room for tangents has become so ingrained. That's OK, though. The more students have to spend their time in regimented classes, like the online sort usually are, the more I feel that their experiences in an actual classroom should prioritize what can't be pre-scripted.

And, yes, it's an exhausting day. I'm gearing up for another one like it tomorrow on top of feeling decidedly out of sorts today. That's when the length really gets to me most.
