Burning The Candle At Both Ends

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, Feb 6, 2012 at 11:18 PM

Today's idiom I taught my ESL class: burning the candle at both ends. Let's just say I could totally use myself as an example. I literally lost my thought four times during class today, completely unable to remember what the hell I was talking about. I mean, I can act like a total nutjob in class with my students sometimes, but I've never actually been one. I need to slow down for some "me" time. Between work, visiting my mom at the hospital in all my free moments, and starting a business with a friend (with a deadline looming very closely overhead), I'm about ready to be locked up in a psych ward.

I'm about to go postal on a few people's asses.
