For my Slice of Life today I logged events as they happened throughout the day.
6:01 a.m. I sent out Llama pictures to the “Llama club” wishing them a Happy Llama Tuesday and then I write until I have to get ready for work.
6:51 a.m. I fill out the COVID screener in order to get cleared to go to school.
7:36 I find out my assistant is not cleared to come to school today. This disrupts my plans for the day with material pick up for students tomorrow.
7:55 a.m. I chat with my assitant on Zoom before we allow the kids in from the waiting room.
8:03 I start morning class and share the agenda with the kids.
9:52 a.m. I listen to the 10 Things to Tell you Podcast and rip social studies and science chapters out of the books to send home for material pick up tomorrow.
10:15 a.m. I meet with the coach and the K team about math and science
11:39 Lunch time. I fast so do not eat. I am listen to a podcast about MFA programs in creative writing. I submit a piece of writing to a publication.
11:52 I am still pissed off and make a list of the frustrations of today hoping that the ink will transfer the feelings to the notebook. (It doesn’t work.)
1:56 Class ends for the afternoon session.
2:14 I notice that the bag that was supposed to be picked up by a parent on Friday is still in the gym.
2:25 I get a message from a friend and am thinking about writing an article about my everything notebook.
3:07 I clean my desk waiting for the time to click by to go home.
3:28p.m. I sign out and log everyone I was in contact with for more than 15 minutes within 6 feet.
4:57p.m. I am halfway through my walk and finally start to feel like myself . I am listening to Tim Ferriss’ interview with Matthew McConaughey and I’m fascinated and surprised it is so interesting.
5: 07 p.m. A friend reminds me that I used to collect rocks every time I traveled and I have a moment of nostalgia. She makes a comment about “How to spontaneously grow tomatoes”.
5:39p.m. I talk to a friend and highlight what I know that she would be good at teaching.
