106/365 How do you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time. * * * I've been throwing a tantrum like 2 year old in my head. "I don't wanna! I don't wanna!" I kept working on trying to catch up, but more kept coming. So, I let it pile up. Now it has to be dealt with. Grades are due, emails need responses, Spanish club needs plans, laundry needs done, dishes washed, trash taken out, pictures posted, ...etc. etc. These are normal everyday things, I know. I have no excuses. I just let myself get overwhelmed and now I can't get motivated to do any of it. It all just seems pointless and like I'm living in the movie "Groundhogs Day". Tomorrow there will be more grading and cleaning to be done, people who need or want something, more students flinging germ-X in my eye and "f bombs" dropped (happened yesterday. Just an example of their everyday stupidity and mine). When it gets like this I have to remind myself to break it down into small manageable pieces, like eating an elephant. Grade one paper at a time instead of staring at the whole bag full and screaming "I don't wanna".
