Am I losing it...????
THREE times in the past 3 weeks I have mixed up/forgotten a class time/day.
And I left the iron on in the house - centimeters away from an inflammable material notice board - for a whole day.
These things make you wonder. Make me wonder.
Are these just slips of the mind, or the start of something more.
Ironically, because one of the films I want to see this month is "Still Alice", with Julianne Moore as a linguistics professor who develops Alzheimer's.
So. The classes. I can explain the mix up on each one. I think.
1) A student who comes very intermittently. She cancels due to work reasons a lot, and if I don't have the following week class written in the diary....I suddenly saw a phone message from her that she was waiting at the classroom door at 8 pm....while I was at home.
2) A student who was coming at 11 am. The class before finished at 10.45 am - and I went off to the gardening center to get flowers for the classroom planters: thinking "Oh it is still 10 am....I have an hour until she comes...". She arrived 5 minutes after I'd driven away.
2) A student who made his class time reservation in a Facebook message - usually he comes Thursday...this week it was Tuesday...and again...a phone message while I was finishing family dinner alerted me to that.
Aghh......I feel bad. My students are forgiving. Nice people.
But it isn't good.
I am double checking everything now.
