I’m either a day late and a dollar short or better late than never. Regardless, I’m here now.
I have a love/hate relationship with testing. I actually liked testing growing up – what we called “achievement tests”. They used to use Sanford but now use Iowa. Whatever. I still like them: there’s something satisfying about filling in those bubbles with a No 2 pencil.
I hate “actively observing” the tests. There’s nothing active about them: no phone, no books – nothing but walking the room watching students take a tests and answering the odd calls for more scratch paper. Thankfully, those three days are do e for another year.
And yet, the testing schedule provided me more planning periods than I technically required, so I was able to catch up on some reading: Dante’s Paradise and Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time.
Evenings this week were taken up with cosplay planning. And by planning, I mean gathering materials: football pads, a green furry body pillow, a lacrosse stick, the guts of a CD player, and an old bicycle. I’ll take pictures when they start becoming something. You won’t have to wait too long; SuperCon is in July!!
Yesterday, early in the morning, I started the final day of cleaning the junk out of the old house. With Sarah’s help, everything is done and I’m ready to sell.
I didn’t cook a burger last night because it was Krystal’s dad’s birthday and we went out to celebrate with him.
And today, today is Easter!
What did you do this week?
