Lately I’ve not wanted to do much of anything. There is a bit of a lull in school work, and with the break starting next week I don’t feel so inclined to plan. There isn’t another PTA even for a while, so those responsibilities aren’t requiring immediate attention. I’m finding I have a little down time, and I’m choosing not to much with it. I’m kind of loving it.
Usually, when I have some down time, I read a book about a new teaching method or brush up on my classroom management. Or I plow through yet another tome on how to make a community school. But right now, I can’t seem to motivate to work ahead on anything. Most nights I just totally waste my own time. What a luxury!
For the past few nights I’ve been devouring Brian K. Vaughan’s Saga series (I ordered them in Spanish) and killing hours playing The Room on my phone (if you loved Myst and Riven you’ll love The Room). It’s totally mindless fun, and I refuse to feel bad about it. Sometimes we need to indulge the very real need to stop caring so much about everything and waste some of our precious time. Hopefully I’ll be recharged by the end of the break, and ready to do some real work.
