today is a first.  

the semester started.  the first day.  

first days are hard.  they go be very fast, yet very slowly.  they leave you feeling content, anxious, exhilarated, exhausted.

but i guess all firsts do that.  think back to the first time you drove by yourself.  or the first time you lived alone.  or your first day of high school.  or college.

while today isn't the first time i've taught, i'm still left feeling all of those things.  

firsts are hard.  

no matter how many times you've had them.
