Day two of the Slice of Life Challenge! So far, so good 🙂 Check out the Two Writing Teachers’ blog to find out more about this month-long challenge.
I can have a variety of lists on any given day. I’ve got my shopping list on the fridge, my daily to-do list in my planner, my weekly itinerary, (do my Pinterest boards of recipes and DIYs count as lists??), and a number of other things floating around in my head.
I used to hate writing lists. Not sure why, but I did. Now, I love them! I feel like when I write them I can accomplish anything.
Today, I felt overwhelmed with homework and housework so I sat down and wrote my list, expecting it to take up most of my sticky note. Here’s what I wrote:
- TE 306
- Study for Adol. Lit (426)
- Film still of “B.A.T.” (427)
- Blog for SOLSC
Three of those items are homework I need to get done, #4 and #5 are self-expanatory 😉 What I’ve come to realize is that just because I make a list, doesn’t mean I get everything done. I wrote this list this afternoon to make sure I finished those five items. It wouldn’t be too hard, right?
I finished my homework for my Teacher Education course and created a differentiated activity (yay!) and then I started my Slice of Life. I’m not entirely sure what happened, but I wrote a few lines…felt a little drowsy…and suddenly it was two hours later!
So suddenly it was time to start making supper (steak on our griddle with baked potatoes–YUM) and…..
*time-out* the Oscars started……..
Okay, I’m focused again.
Anyways, lists don’t mean that I will get anything done. Today, among many other days, have proven that to me. Lists do, however, provide me direction and help me prioritize.
Speaking of prioritizing, I’ve got a test tomorrow!
Until tomorrow’s post,
