This year, I don't feel like I have time to do anything during my preps. I don't have a desire to be on the net just messing around during the day.
Today, when I got to school and the internet in the building was not working, at first, I was not really too concerned. I was thinking that I wouldn't really need it in the morning and that it would be fixed soon enough. I guess I have been spoiled by the other work places that actually give a shit about having internet working in a school - that and that the other places had technology people and an internal server in their buildings.
No such luck here.
It was down all day and they don't even know if it will be back up tomorrow.
There went my plans for copying (which, I'm still trying to figure out why they don't have remote printing so I don't have to email myself a document and then go to a computer in the office to print it to make copies for students), my plans for putting grades into the system since the marking period ends next Tuesday, and my plans to email my social studies mentor-type person about our meeting tomorrow.
But I was fortunately able to get some work done that did not require the internet.
I need to add a printer to my list of things to buy for the apartment. Or maybe ship my old one from StL.
It is amazing how much we we require technology now even though not too long ago it was not a necessity.
