Distractions on a Saturday Afternoon

I'm supposed to be writing the first chapter of my dissertation, of which I've written only 4 sentences.  I guess it's a good thing I decided to get started on this on a Saturday instead of procrastinating until the usual Sunday which I'm infamous for.  Instead of writing about ESL study strategies, I would rather be doing a million other things such as....

Venturing to Starbucks for a seasonally Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Walking around the Farmer's market as I hear the familiar rumble of Bikes, Blues & BBQ which graces my lovely little town with the presence of thousands of bikers every October.

Finding great deals at Dillard's sales today.

Getting caught up on writing up lesson plans for my portfolio that were previously taught.

Oh well...  it's back to the drawing board.

On a brighter note though... I am very proud to say that since I have started teaching fully on my own I have only brought home one stack of papers to grade.  A very wise teacher once told me to never bring home papers to grade, and I hope to take his advice for my own teaching career.  It's all about taking advantage of the precious stolen moments throughout the day and arriving early each morning to get a jump start on the day!  I'm so thankful that I don't have thousands of papers to grade each night along with the other million things I must do every day!
