Once again, I find myself apologizing for the length of time between posts. I don’t know, maybe I’m just getting bored with keeping up with this blog, or perhaps I’m too lazy, or maybe there’s just nothing to post about right now. However, I’ve pinned down one good reason–I’m spending too much time watching the Yankee games on MLB TV. I find myself using my spare time to watch the games to the exclusion of other personal responsibilities, like posting to the blog, cleaning my apartment, eating, sleeping . . .
Ok, it’s not that bad, but I do find myself using valuable time off to watch the games. My weekday schedule gives me several free hours in the middle of the day. My easiest days are Tuesday and Thursday, when I’m free from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Monday, Wednesday and Friday slack time is from 2 to 6. Also, I have two early morning classes, from 8 to 10, every day but Friday. Evening classes are from 6 to 8 every day, and I go to bed about 10 every night, since I get up at 4:30 every morning (yeah, I’m quite the early bird) and go into the office around 6:30 or 7 to prepare my lessons for the day. I also spend a bit of time on Saturday mornings preparing for the upcoming week.
So, a lot of my valuable free time is spent watching the Yanks roll over the rest of the league. They’re off to a great start this season and it’s a thrill to watch them. But, since it’s the early part of the season and because I’m using too much time engrossed in the games AND because I can’t really afford the $24.95 a month for accessing the games on MLB TV (yes, I have money issues–but don’t we all?), I’ve canceled my subscription. When the dog days of summer start in August, I’ll probably renew it to catch the pennant race at the end of the season and to watch the team defend their World Series Championship. Until then, I’ll have to be content with posting here about how great this current Yankee dynasty is. 🙂
Therefore, I hope to be posting more content here in the days, weeks and months ahead. More later.
