I don’t know what to post about today, probably because I had a bit of a nothing day. Still, though, I feel like I’ve hit a wall.
Today, I woke up, showered, ate breakfast, checked email, did a little course prep, took a nap, set up my gradebook (finally), had a snack, and now I’m just kind of twiddling my thumbs. I don’t know why because I have plenty to do to prep for the week AND I’m going to get a ton of grading tomorrow AND I’m behind on Canvas grading. But I just am where I am, I guess.
To end this on an up note, I am glad I set up my gradebook. Last semester, I used the provided attendance printout and just felt out of sorts all semester because everything was all scattered and not in one place. So I feel so much better knowing that all of my students’ information is neatly tucked in the pages of my gradebook. Whew.
Last week, I posted:

Last week, I finished reading:
I finished one book last week and abandoned one. I anticipate March being a slow reading month since back to school time usually slows me down.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was cute and a pretty realistic rendering of middle school whether you’re making the leap from being homeschooled or not.
My favorite (“favorite”) part is the moment this dude calls Imogene’s dad “amigo” and she GOES OFF even though I don’t think she picks up on the microaggression. It’s a pretty great moment.
I’m not that interested in medieval faire stuff, but it’s always nice to see that different people have different lives, yeah? All in all, a solid read.
Read Harder, Task 4: A comic written and illustrated by the same person.
Tapping out at chapter 12 of the audiobook.
I heard a lot of good things so was excited to read this, but it’s just one huge info dump and none of them are handled with any finesse. (Do I really need a biography of every single person involved with the creation of OASIS? No.) Also, I’m not really into reading about people playing video games since I’m not all that keen on watching them play video games.
I also heard great things about Wil Wheaton’s narration, but really, he (the character and Wheaton both, honestly) just comes off like a smug asshole.
So this one is just not for me.
My hold on an Agatha Christie audiobook came in while I was at the conference, but I haven’t actually started it yet and I’m not sure what I’m going to read with my eyeballs yet. Maybe once my mood improves I’ll figure it out.
Have a great week, everyone!
