Today was one of those days when I had a lot of stuff that needed to be done.
I had a stack of papers to finish grading, and sample papers to find to show students to their project.
For another class, I had to prep a text I've never taught before. (It was so great! Sometimes, you take a flyer and it works!)
And for the third class, I needed to prep a different text I've never taught before.
For two of the classes, I needed to prepare and give midterm grades to students. (One of them is a requirement, one optional, but I do both because I can.)
I have a big list things to do tomorrow, but it feels more manageable with the big stack of papers graded. I love having graded a pile.
I'm liking the journal list thing I wrote about here. It's working helpfully for keeping stuff in mind without having to rewrite the list and such. And having the stuff all together, a day list, a longer term project list, it helps. I'm also putting some brainstormy type stuff there, too.
