Steph sans routine

I’m struggling a bit without a regular routine.

I tend to “Go Robot” and get tasks done rapid-fire when I have a deadline and a set schedule for things.

Without that- in this weird, online, e-learning limbo we’ve been thrust into, I find myself forgetting to slice in a timely manner.

Pre-closure I had my slice done before 7:30 am, most days. I had an alarm on my phone at 7:15 saying “Daily Slice!” so that if I caught up in one of the other millions of tasks a teacher has to do before school, I was reminded to take a second and slice.

Now that I don’t have to be awake before 7:45….I turned off the alarm. So, here I am, at almost lunch time, writing a slice about nothing. My whole routine has been thrown off, and I feel, probably how the kids feel, unmotivated and blobbish. Honestly. This is new for all of us. Today, I’m giving myself grace and telling the truth: I’m frustrated and uninspired. For the moment. I’m sure I’ll be struck with something spectacular and steph-like in the next 24 hours, but for right now, this is what I’ve got.

  1. “My whole routine has been thrown off, and I feel, probably how the kids feel, unmotivated and blobbish.” I love this line (and the entire post). Yesterday, I was wondering why my students are feeling unmotivated, and I was frustrated. But you are so correct – If we are feeling unmotivated and blobbish without school, our students are probably feeling double. It’s easy to be unmotivated when you are tied to a computer the whole day. Thanks for the post.
