Why do I always put off doing my assignments? I am trying to finish up my National Boards with Components 3 and 4. I have had all year to do Component 4. I needed to videotape 2 lessons from my classroom and write 2 papers Describing, Analyzing and Reflecting on those lessons. I have the videos done and 1 paper started.I have not even started doing Component 4 at all. Everything is due by May 17th! I will get all of it done but why do I procrastinate? My excuses are: spending time with family, working basketball games,exercising, cleaning, teaching,shopping, chores at home, professional development…several other things!!
I started this post yesterday and here I am not finished yet. I have fed four dogs, spent time with my 6 month old granddaughter, nursed my niece’s dog’s ear after my own dog decided to protect his bowl of food, cleaned out my niece’s cats litter box and feed them since she is away, scanned and sent my tax information to my tax man, read home emails, wrote out a couple of birthday checks for mother in-law (who lives with me) to send out and brushed all four dogs that live in the house. Time has flown by this weekend and I have not done ALL the things on my list. Hopefully, I will get to them all in the next few days so I can cross some more off my list!
