I have had great trouble making the time to write. I am only writing now to “workcrastinate.” I should be grading essays, but writing is more fun than grading. Go figure.
I had to make time to share a question a student had for our class last week: “Is Thanksgiving break and Christmas break at the same time this year?”
I was proud of myself for not responding in a sarcastic manner, which is one of my goals this year. Then, I realized, the student was not asking that strange of a question. She may be very in tune with a politician’s work schedule.
I can see her getting elected one day.
As for me, I am thankful that this Thanksgiving I will have the opportunity to grade many essays.
