For some reason I am in pretty good shape in terms of workload. (Probably because no essays have been due yet, so there is nothing to grade.) Instead of procrastinating on the low priority tasks as I usually do, today I created my grading spreadsheets and scanned some articles for later in the semester. I was itching to go read Mark Twain, of course, and that is what I would have done in the past...then paid the price in several weeks when there are a lot of other demands on my time. If I play my cards right I may be able to fit in a guilt-free hour or two of reading this afternoon. Hmm. Which is the better approach?
So cold! Our glorious winter of '10-'11 continues.
