National Boards are kicking my booty!!

No post until Top Off Tuesday and maybe not the rest of this week…depending.  Also, commenting might be sporadic and, if you’re waiting on an email from me, I’m working on it, I promise! *sigh*

See, I’ve been writing my National Boards all weekend (well, a lot of procrastination went into that writing. I put the “pro” in procrastination. No, I’m not proud of it.), and I’m seriously brain-dead. 

PLUS, I’m not even done! This is Boards renewal, which isn’t as much writing as what I had to do ten years ago to get the original Board certification but it’s still 23 pages of writing and reflection plus proof (student work, certificates, etc.) and a 10-minute video of my teaching. 

For some reason, I thought I could whip it out in a weekend but my hind brain is thinking, “End of the school year, we don’t need to do nothin’! It’s time to par-tay! Read, relax, drink and curse! Woot!” 

But my forebrain knows better and is saying, “Get yer arse in gear, girl. You’ve got a newspaper to put out, National Boards to finish writing and a Freshman First video to put together! Plus, there’s BEA and graduation and a ridiculous amount of things to do between now and June 7th. GET WORKING!”

So, I’m going to get back to it. I NEED this sucker done — my self-imposed deadline is Tuesday for all the writing before handing it over to my editors. Wish me luck!
