I have started and stopped writing this post numerous times. I can't seem to shake thoughts of COVID- 19 out of my mind. I want to write something that is not about what is going on in the world, what is happening in my county, state and neighborhood but I am really struggling. Writing seems to be an outlet for me (and many of my fellow slicers). It is sorta like a brain dump before a big test.... I just need to get it out. But I also realize that many of us need to hear, think, read, listen to something other than this virus.
So, here goes..... Yesterday, I watched a movie that actually held my interest. I am a watch and read kinda person. Not yesterday, I actually put down my book for this one. The movie was Bombshell. The actresses portraying the female newscasters did a brilliant job and man, did they look just like the real people. (Yes, I looked it up... I am that person!) At times, I forgot that Charlize Theron was not Megyn Kelly. I am sure it will not be a movie for all of you but it was an interesting thought-provoking description of events.
I also facetimed with a friend and laughed out loud. She is a parent, colleague, and friend and she has taken seven of our chickens home for the weekend/week. She called to show me that the chicken had spit its water on her face... like literally the water was dripping down her face. I didn't even know chickens could spit. It was super funny and her antics while describing the situation were priceless. An added bonus was that I got to see her daughter who is one of my students.
Today, I plan on reading a book, taking a break from social media and the news and grading the never-ending pile of papers. I am pretty sure that graded papers multiply overnight. I swear there is always more there than I should have. Could be that students suddenly "find" their missing work... what were they like socks in the dryer than suddenly reappear?
I hope I got your mind off of the craziness for just a minute, I know that it was good for mine!
