- Printed out the penultimate draft of the manuscript.
- Written one quiz.
- Taught one class.
- Put together a conference appointment sign-up sheet.
- Emailed all of my mentors about the job search conclusion (had been procrastinating about that).
- Emailed my editor.
- Printed out and reviewed all submissions for the MLA Panel. I think a few more may still trickle in. After looking at them systematically, I'm feeling very stressed out because I know I'm going to have to reject people who really have great ideas. The good news is that I won't need really to speak if I don't want to - so much good stuff in response to the topic. Weirdly, though, a couple of people actually cite me in their abstracts. I'm both flattered and a little embarassed.
- Graded 2/3 of quizzes from one class.
- Emailed a university office about scheduling something - or, rather, rescheduling it. (I'd been putting this off, too).
- Made a vet appointment for the Man-Kitty (should have happened in December).
- Emailed upper-level class to remind them that they have a discussion-board post due.
Ok, you can go back to whatever you were doing now. :)
UPDATE, 4:31 PM
Don't worry, everyone, I'm not back to report that I found a cure for cancer, found a plan for peace in the middle east, and started a school for children in Guam. I know my last post really was filled with the productivity, but if you want to know how that kind of productivity can be sustained, you must look at what I've done since then:
- Emailed with friends.
- Ate lunch.
- Did some reading prep for tomorrow.
- Made the poor decision to conduct #3 from the Bed of Crazy, which meant falling into a bit of a deep slumber for approximately 1 1/2 hours.
- Went for a long walk (3 miles) in my very hilly neighborhood. Sun out during walk, now cloudy.
