1. I cannot be trusted with post-it notes. I needed some rather important information earlier this week, and someone wrote it on a post-it and handed it to me. I proceeded to misplace that post-it note not once, but twice. Both times I realized I could not find the post-it note, I panicked. Big time. The side benefit? Retracing my steps multiple times meant walking an extra 1.5 miles around my school, according to my pedometer. Next time someone tries to hand me a post-it note, I’m going to take a picture of it with my phone and hand the note right back.
2. Tuesday basketball games are good for me. Even though I teach piano until 5:15 so it’s a quick rush back to the school, hanging out in my classroom working while kids are taking photos and tweeting gives me time to work and keeps me off my couch. And I still get home with enough time to listen to a podcast, make my lunch, and be in bed by 10. I feel like I have all the time in the world, actually!
3. Sitting on my couch watching TV makes me more tired than being at school. But I love it so much. I can’t quit doing it. But the time seems to go so fast and I don’t have enough time to get everything done that I need to! Weird how that works.
4. If I don’t run right after school, it ain’t happening. Unless, of course, I don’t turn down the volume in my car or set my front defrost in my car, which I didn’t do today. So it’s 8:45, and if I want to use my remote start in the morning and not blast out the neighbors, I need to go out to my car. And if I’m going to go out to my car, I might as well go somewhere, and if I’m going to go somewhere, I might as well go to the gym. Right? Probably. But then again, probably not. Either way, if I don’t run right after school, it ain’t happening.
Self-awareness is nice sometimes.
