I had a plan for today. A schedule. A whole big "Five-to-Seven-Edit-Marry-The-Moon-Draft" and then a "Seven-to-Eight-Study-Korean" and an "Eight-to-Nine-Work-On-Blog" thing.
But then life happened.
This past Saturday was completely my own. I slept in, didn’t make plans to see anyone, leisurely completed a writing to-do list, and even—gasp--watched TV. I won’t bore anyone with the details of my day, but a few things happened that made me reflect… First, I cleaned out the guestroom/office.
Yo. I know. Crazy shit, man. But cleaning out an office led me down a rabbit hole of childhood dreams...
Let's be honest, teachers hate prep time.
I'm writing this post while eating lunch in my classroom, and I'm struggling to stay awake (as usual). It's Monday, and it's rainy, and I just want to tell my students to complete fill-in-the-blanks all week rather than sit here and plan/prep for the next four days. I was at the beach all day yesterday, want to write today after I run countless errands--this lesson planning HAS to happen now...
...So obviously I decided to blog for a bit instead.
