Not Teaching: Week 5

We are now past the tipping point of returning to school in September... but of course, I’m not returning to school then. I think the year off is finally sinking in, if only because I’ve started to actively procrastinate on certain things (in favour of other things), somehow aware that I actually do have more than 3 weeks to get the things done.

In light of that, I’m shaking up the format here. There will no longer be “Teaching Related Items” because the only things that would go there now are: blog posts (which fit in ‘writing’), council meetings (which don’t start for a while) and general work on courses (and I have too much other stuff ranked above that!).

There will also no longer be ‘MUST DO’ items, because if something can stay on that list for three weeks, it’s obviously *NOT* a ‘Must Do’ item!! Instead we’ll have ‘Probable Projects’, those being the things I am most likely to get to in the coming week. Appointments will still be in there, so it’s liable to be listed chronologically, versus ‘Would Be Nice’, which is (and always has been) listed with the most likely things on the top.

A couple final things to mention before shutting down the Teaching:
-Tina Cardone is looking to create a “Day In The Life” book, a chronicle of an entire teaching year from a number of people, so if that looks like something you’d be interested in, go check that out.
-Meg Craig made me one of her “Stars of The Week” over on her blog, following my cubic parody song. (I have a vague idea of converting more of those over the next year.) If you also want to recognize someone of the MTBoS, see this post for information and the button code.
Stars of The Week

Item counts run Sunday (July 31) to Saturday (August 6).

Step Count: About 46,500.
I seem to be settling into a habit of about 4 days being at/over 7,000 steps, and the others being me sitting at my desk writing. Ugh, not good, someone give me motivation to get more fresh air.
