On a touchscreen.

I’m only six weeks away from teaching 8th grade. I have never been more scared in my life.
Y’know that feeling you get when you board a roller coaster? You can still get up and leave, but you’re not sure you should, because you’d probably regret missing the ride.
My stomach feels heavy. I could swear I’m falling. My eyes won’t settle on an object.
I don’t know what to expect. I don’t know what will happen. And that lack of knowing, like the feeling before the first plummet on a ride, is scarier than the drop.
So why can’t I convince myself of this?
At least I’m able to fall asleep earlier.
For the most part.
