I have a million and one other things that I should be doing but I don’t want to do them.  It is raining outside and I would love to be at home, curled up in my microplush, heated blanket reading a book.  Or knitting a scarf for a homeless veteran.  Or watching something on Netflix streaming.  Or just lie there and listen to the rain.  Instead, I am at work with a stack of papers and projects that I should be grading.  It is my prep period and I am in my classroom listening to my ipod.  I have one class left to grade for our current project but I just don’t want to do it right now.

I have already graded 71 projects–35 more to go.  My brain is fried from analyzing the posters and photographs (I’m a photography teacher).  I thought if I just started writing a post then maybe I could get the creativity flowing and motivate myself to get stuff done.  So far, it’s not working.
