Two Down, One to Go

So that whole procrastination thing? Turns out it can be kind of a drag.

The good news it, two of my huge assignments are done and turned in. One of them has already be favorably assessed. So that’s good, right? However…

One. More. Assignment.

Well, one more before the next class, and then I think there’s another one after that, you know, just for fun.

Okay, I can totally do this. In fact I’m all but ready to write it up. I’ve put in the time, done the research, and now I just need to wrap it up. Yep. That’s it. Not asking too much, is it?

But you know what? I’m fried. Extra crispy, in fact. Hmmm… that makes me wonder if I’m hungry? I’ve been at my computer for hours! And not surfing either, really, truly working.

It’s time for a break. Maybe some dinner. Then maybe, just maybe I’ll finish off that last assignment tonight. But really, probably not.

Procrastination

I’m supposed to be doing my homework. Homework I was supposed to do over winter vacation.

I’ve been working on it, but it’s time for a break. Why? Because my head is swimming.

Between Costa’s three levels of questioning, eleven Kaplan icons, and six thinking hats, I’m done. At least for the moment.

It’s good stuff, really it is. It’s interesting, and I’m enjoying learning more about the world of educating gifted kids, but I need a break.

I’m afraid my brain isn’t as fluid as it once was, and integrating new learning is tougher. 

I’m feeling overwhelmed by my commitments lately and don’t quite know where to start.

I just haven’t had the mojo to get these assignments done. There, that’s the truth.

So now I’m digging out from under them to get them finished. It’s a lot, but I can do it. That’s it for my break. My conscience is clear now, and soon one of my assignments will be done and submitted, so that’s a good thing too. Thanks for letting me hang out with you for a few minutes while I procrastinated. I really did need it.

 

Images of Bisbee, Arizona

Bisbee, Arizona has a really interesting past. At one point it was the most populous city in Arizona. It was also the wealthiest. Now it’s the poorest. It’s a former mining town that had to reinvent itself (as something of an artists’ colony) after the mine shut down in 1973.

It was interesting to learn about the history of the area, and to see what life in Bisbee is like these days. There is no corporate presence in the town to speak of. There’s one dentist and a couple of doctors, but most everyone gets their medical care out of town. People pick up their mail at the post office, because the hillside homes prevent home delivery. There are a couple of small markets, but no grocery store. It’s steep, secluded, and quirky, and that’s the way the residents like it.

Arizona’s oldest saloon is located in Bisbee, and so is the mining museum, which is affiliated with the Smithsonian. You can stay at a haunted hotel and eat delicious meals. You’ll see plenty of old buildings, street art, and dogs if you visit. If you do, be sure to stop by Kartchner Caverns, which isn’t too far away. It’s pristine and unique, and well worth the price of admission.
