I wrote the initial responses to the questions after an 11 hour work day. Teaching right now is very very challenging. I have not worked on preparing lessons so much since I was a first year teacher. Being older and wiser means I am even more conscious of the quality of my teaching. That just makes me push harder and, well, let’s just say I am tired.
Wisely I decided to review this after some sleep before I posted. So I will keep the original answers and add some “morning after” notes.
1. So, what’s your typical work uniform if you are working from home?
I wish I was working from home! Right now I would love to be home all day,
in my pyjamas,
At the time when I wrote this I was in my pyjamas eating chocolate. It was a great way to be. But honestly I have face to face time with my students every lesson so pyjamas is probably not a good idea.
2. Are you eating more _____ under coronavirus lock-down or self-quarantine? (choose all that apply)
a. prepared foods
b. fresh produce
c. frozen food (veggies, entrees, pizzas, etc.)
d. snacks foods (cookies, cakes, ice cream, chips, crackers, candy, etc.)
d. homemade soups, stews, casseroles
e. I’m just eating more…everything.
As I have kind of explained in my Food 4 Thought post last week I am not really in what the rest of the world knows as lockdown.
Having said that we have just had two weeks of Easter holidays during which I ate a lot of: b. Fresh produce and d. Home made soups, stews and casseroles.
This was followed by two weeks of introduction to online teaching during which I have eaten a bunch of d. Snack foods in particular, chocolate and cookies.
Being kinder to myself I am eating a bit of chocolate at the moment but it is actually Easter remains. I am not actively buying extra. But in a week or so when the Easter chocolate is gone? Hopefully then we will be back to regular classes.
3. What are you planning to do?
Tonight; finish this blog and then go to bed.
Today conquer the education world with spectacularly designed lessons.
4. Picked up any new hobbies lately?
Not really. I have revisited an old hobby that I haven’t had a lot of time to work on though. During the recent Easter break I made my daughter a brand new dress.
I also have a pending dress that is made from the same fabric. I had a calculation error and bought wayyyyyy too much.
5. Would you rather be compelled to high five everyone you meet or be compelled to give wedgies to anyone in a green shirt?
I am going to go with high fives. No one should ever be subjected to wedgies.
Bonus: Would you rather live in virtual reality where you are all powerful or live in the real world and be able to go anywhere but not be able to interact with anyone or anything? A god in the machine or a ghost in the real world.
I am already a goddess! So I am going with the virtual option. At least I get to control my environment,
Someone told me this week they thought my butt was the eighth wonder of the world. So behold the eighth wonder of the world
