I think it should be “like a chicken with its head cut off,” but I don’t like chickens much. Unless they’re on a plate and I didn’t have to cook them.
The point is, I’m Entirely Too Busy. Those of you out there who for even a fleeting moment considered teaching because “you get summers off” should hang out with me for a week or so in July. Or June. And August.
The National Writing Project Summer Institute is going beautifully and I love every single second of it. I just haven’t had a minute to gather my thoughts for a while. I haven’t done the laundry, either, which is what I’m going to do right this very minute.
In the meantime, I’ve found this video on killing creativity in the schools. Yes, it’s long. Yes, it’s worth it. My little gift to you while I separate handwashables from the towels.
