Have you ever needed to do something, but can’t make yourself get around to doing it?
Probably not, right?
Well I am only 7 months removed from college, but I am finding it nearly impossible to make myself do my homework. Why do I have homework, you ask? Well, this semester us teachers have been reading (or not reading) books about teaching. As we all know, the only books I have been reading this semester start with an ‘H’ and end with an ‘arry Potter’.
Now that we will be presenting our book reports next week, I really need to start reading the book, which is titled something like “Motivational Strategies for the Language Learning Classroom.” I know what your thinking, with a title like that, who wouldn’t want to read it?! But I just can’t make myself do it! I am finding all sorts of things to distract me from reading the book, like:
- Watching music videos that I don’t care about
- Patiently waiting for E! News to finally tell me what happened during Florence + The Machine’s live performance on SNL (her earpiece that lets her hear her voice didn’t turn on for 20 seconds after the performance started!)
- Stalking people on Facebook that I went to high school with but have never talked to
And now, since I have taken so long to write this blog post about what I should be doing but am not doing, I have run out of time tonight to read my book. Before I can go to bed in an hour, I still have to wash 5 dishes, lock my door, brush my teeth, wash my face, wash my feet, and walk to my bed, which is definitely going to take up all of that hour.
So, my friends, it seems that Sir Tyler has a problem on his hands. Stay tuned to see what happens next.
