Last week, having followed a book recommendation from a Twitter connection, I finished The Mezzanine by Nicholson Baker. This line, among several, stuck with me:
[T]he corporate bathroom is the one place in the whole office where you understand completely what is expected of you. (71)
Excising 'corporate' from this quotation and replacing 'office' with 'school' gives a surprisingly accurate -- if snarky -- summation of my professional footing in the closing days of February's seismic grind.
p.s. Maybe writing daily in March as part of the Slice of Life Challenge will help me distill expectations moving forward into spring...
