I am a professor, Gentle Reader, which means that school for me goes year round. There are no summers off, no real holidays to speak of, because I am pre-tenure. That means I work, constantly. Add in writing and some semblance–little though it may be–of A Life, and I’m Awfully Busy, all the time.
But today, O, Today! I went to Office Depot and bought pens! post-its! larger post-its! paper! Office and school supplies galore!
I never outgrew the love of new school supplies, the plastic-y smell of a pencil case, the sharp tang of markers. The fresh feel of a post-it peeling off its cube. The excitement a new pack of post-it-flags can bring.
I think today, I will organize. The Big Board(1) is woefully empty, and the Bigger Board(2) is full of old, outdated post-its.
What are you doing today, Friends?
