I have a million and one other things that I should be doing but I don’t want to do them. It is raining outside and I would love to be at home, curled up in my microplush, heated blanket reading a book. Or knitting a scarf for a homeless veteran. Or watching something on Netflix streaming. Or just lie there and listen to the rain. Instead, I am at work with a stack of papers and projects that I should be grading. It is my prep period and I am in my classroom listening to my ipod. I have one class left to grade for our current project but I just don’t want to do it right now.
I have already graded 71 projects–35 more to go. My brain is fried from analyzing the posters and photographs (I’m a photography teacher). I thought if I just started writing a post then maybe I could get the creativity flowing and motivate myself to get stuff done. So far, it’s not working.
