Stacks of articles, demanding my brain

focus and think logically.

Assignment instructions I just want to avoid.

My students drive me crazy when they show this sentiment.

But then, I’ll actually get the work done

(on time)

despite the procrastination,

which they frequently do not.

So many papers.  So tired from report cards and marking stacks of late assignments and prepping for a new semester and February.



But the end is in sight.

I can’t give up now.

    Its never about the ending, its about the experience on the way 🙂

  4. A few minutes taken for some impromptu Zumba, or just a fresh cup of green tea, would seem to be in order.
