R and R. Mmmhmmm
After a couple of tough weeks of school there is nothing like a weekend getaway. Grabbed a few foodstuffs, a couple of changes of clothes, and of course, school work. But hey, at least I’d be doing lesson plans in a change of scenery.
First thing I did was nap. Then I grabbed my Hamlet homework and dug in. Even though I’ve taught Hamlet for the last three years, and really, really like the play, I know I have to up my game since I am know teaching it ala AP. Deeper, richer, more insights–get some questions (try to know the answers). I was delighted to find that my iPhone internet connection functioned which meant I didn’t have to pay the WiFi fee. Heck, I didn’t even use my laptop this weekend.
I all kinds of Hamlet helps on the Internet. One especially helpful site was called Shakespeare Navigators. I drained my iPhone battery working the site so much and had to drive around to charge it up. Gave me an excuse to go down to the Safeway (a good 40 minute drive) to stock up on essentials like Peppermint Bark Haagen Daz. You know Christmas is around the corner when the Peppermint Bark comes out. Fortunately MEPA met up with me on Saturday and brought my charger. Whew. A good personal assistant is more valuable than all the Haagen Daz in the freezer.
I tried to NaNo while R and R-ing and managed to get the posts up. I didn’t manage to update my word count until I got home and looking at my statistics and posting three days worth of word count bloated my chart slightly.
