(best Sophia from Golden Girls impression) Picture it: my living room. There is a (rather large) stack of papers to grade on the coffee table, shoes still sitting wherever I’ve taken them off for the past couple of days, and a laptop open with plenty of unanswered emails to be taken care of.
I will be productive today. Just not right now.
Instead, I’ve made some really good bad decisions. After my long day yesterday, I slept circa a million hours (I teach English.. my math: not so good.). Then I got up this morning and went to Barnes and Nobles to research some books I’d like to have in my classroom (I won a gift card for my classroom library!). I need to put together a list for a purchase order to do so and wanted to get some physical researching done in an actual store. I’ll put a list together this evening. Nevertheless, what did I do at B&N? Buy myself a book that I’ve been waiting for but have been too busy to realize it was already out. And I restocked my Nook Giftcard.
On my way home, I bought myself a cheeseburger and fries at Five Guys. And now, I’m sitting here eating a mountain of french fries (which are fabulous, but really just a vehicle for the yummy BBQ sauce), watching The Holiday on TBS (Dear Kate Winslet, be my best friend.).
Should I be cleaning or grading or emailing? Sure. But for now, I’ll continue to drink this very large Cherry Coke and quote this whole movie (that I own, but it’s so much easier when I don’t have to put it in the DVD player). Enjoy your day! I know I will!
