Not Teaching: Week 13

I’ve started goofing off a bit, playing a computer game. (With writing, you can kinda get away with that guilt-free, not so much with teaching.) I did have a few appointments and meetings this week, so maybe that was a factor, seeking more down time. I got my eyes checked for the first time in maybe four years, since an eye was bothering me (it's fine). Also went to the bookstore. A former student recognized me (Sydney P) and we chatted. Yay for high school teachers.

I was going to design a “Time Lines” banner for these posts, kinda started it, feel it needs more, might happen before Thanksgiving (next weekend), might not. Sidebar, I’m caught up with “Agents of SHIELD”, which resumed earlier this month, and saw more “Bones”, from last season.
