I am done with schooling and the typical, academic form of homework (unless you ask my father, who says I need to go after a PhD).
improve my life. There are conversations to be had, food to be prepared, things to get rid of, packing to be done, a new abode to be found, and more.
I know I need to focus on the home work at hand so that my life will be better, relationships will be better, and the nutritional content of my meals will be better. I can't put things off any more, lest I continue to make excuses as my students do for procrastinating on what needs to be finished. I'm taking the blinders off and seeing what is clearly happening - me coming home after a 12+-hour day, only wanting to chill, watch old tv shows, and play an occasional game of WWF or Hanging With Friends.
Although this is often incredibly relaxing and mentally unchallenging, I need to find a way to balance that sense of relief that the outside day is over and the need to finish the home work that needs to be done.
