Retrenchment, Day 19

It's the first day of classes, so I'm not really focused on the future or the retrenchment right now. I'm writing this anyway, to remind myself. I want to avoid being lulled into complacency by the idea that losing my job is still months away. I'm excited about my classes that are beginning, but I shouldn't let that distract me from the reality of my situation. As good as it's going to feel to be in front of students today, both in person and on video, I think I need the daily discipline of this Retrenchment Diary to keep me focused on solving this problem. Because it is not going to solve itself.
