Not Teaching: Week 15

You know you’re a math teacher when you spot scientific calculators for 50% off and buy them even though you won’t have cause to use them in a classroom for months. Unrelated, I’ve been musing about why the writing is going slower this month. Some of it is being preoccupied with other things (like Thanksgiving) but other times when I could write, I don’t. Maybe I can only do something for so long before needing to try something else?

Still not sure how October is going to play out. Hoping I can finish all T&T edits before NaNoWriMo. Not sure what else.

Item counts run Sunday (October 9) to Saturday (October 15).

Step Count: About 59,600.
Only about 2,750 on Wednesday, wasn’t feeling great. Tried to make up for it afterwards with two 10k+ days. Took 10 flights of stairs every time I visited at Chapel St.

School Email Count: 38 New (1 sent)
News of the week is that apparently the school is phasing out the automated phone system in favour of an email one. Also I got benefit update information in the postal mail, which I need to act on. Feels like mixed signals.

 -Finished T&T Part 86 at last. Started 87.
