Glad I'm not Teaching

Today is the first day of the semester at my former university. I'm glad I don't have to teach today. Maybe some day I'll come back to it. But I need a break from it and academia in general. I've been doing academic research for 20 years since I worked on the project when I was an undergrad that became my first published paper. I'm burnt out. I'll keep doing a little of this at my own pace. For example, right now I'm working on reviewing a paper for a journal. But I'm also rejecting a lot of review requests. That's nothing new for me as I was getting requests to review far more papers than I could.
