Anyone available for coffee tonight? I can meet around 8.
Uh, oh! The texts are coming in from my girlfriends. I would love to go, but I need to get my classwork finished. I took 4 classes this round – one class is completely finished, one just needs me to write and turn-in my 1-page reflection, one is Slice of Life and I have been keeping up to date but it won’t be completed until March 31st, and the one I haven’t even started yet . . and it’s due by Friday.
Sorry, Girls. I just can’t do it tonight. I have after school book club with some students, a meeting for union presidents, and then I need to get my one class started.
OK. It’s just that we haven’t seen you in a few weeks. We miss you!
I miss you girls too. I hate having to be responsible!
Although I should have gotten this classwork completed weeks ago, I just didn’t have the motivation to plow through it and do it. But tonight I decided I better become a responsible adult and listen to the words I have told my students and my own children day after day, “If you just sat down and started the work, you would see that it wouldn’t take as long as it does to avoid it.”
One video and one reflection down, nine more to go.
I should be able to go on Thursday. By Thursday, I will definitely deserve a break!
