Slice of Life Tuesday: Another Sort of Slice

This post is part of the weekly Slice of Life challenge from Two Writing Teachers. Check them out!

Today was a whole day of online workshops. I really wanted to spend time writing, but couldn’t bear the computer screen any more. So, my Slice for today goes as follows. Enjoy!

  1. This slice is a great reminder that slices come in many possible forms! Glad that you listened to what your body was telling you about screens while satisfying your need to write.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I hadn’t gotten to the point that my eyes hurt from the screen in a really long time. It was enough to remind me that it wasn’t my favorite feeling…

    1. Thank you! It took work, but I was able to tear myself away. It’s hard, isn’t it, to make that final separation between self and tech world? It’s something I continue to work on, something I always hope to get better at.

  2. Love this! Who hasn’t been there? As I would tell my students, if you just write out a grocery list you are still writing. Sometimes just to stay sane you have to step away and find an alternative. Love yours.

    1. Absolutely! Writing (and reading!) comes in so many forms that we never stop to fully think about or realize. I’m going to have to think about that more…

  3. Doodling makes time go by! Sometimes, I’ll look at my students and see what they are doing, smiling as I walk around them. They look at me like they are in trouble, but in my mind, I know what they are doing! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your doodles. I makes me want do a little bit of that myself!

    1. Yes, indeed it does! You’re right about the students. Sometimes they do something that seems so counterintuitive in my mind, but makes perfect sense with their reasoning. THOSE are the times I learn the most from them. =))

  4. I chuckle at the underlying wry truths here, my friend. I love how you always find a way to add your own unique sparkle to the dreariest thing! You also reminded me, in this era where educators are told to “use technology in the classroom!” – that brain research shows the vital connection between actual handwriting and thinking. Every post you share is a mine of thought, and I never come away without a gem. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Fran. Your words made my day. And yes, there’s something to be said for going “analog” sometimes in our digital world…
