(The Slice of Life Challenge in March is hosted by Two Writing Teachers as way to encourage teachers-as-writers. You can join in, if you want. There is also a monthly call for Slices on Tuesdays. You can write then, too)
Four hours of in-person teaching immediately followed by three straight hours of parent-teacher conferences on Zoom immediately followed by two hours of facilitating professional development on Zoom leads to what only could be described as a very blurry brain.
Peace (wide awake and ready),
There are days I spend non-stop zooming, and by the end of those days, not only my brain is blurry, but also my eyes, and it feels extra good to get into bed with a book that I can hold in three dimensions.
I said to my technical writing husband last night. How do you do it? When I spend all day ‘zooming’ through lessons and meetings I am exhausted. My eyes hurt. He said now I know why he falls asleep on the coach after dinner. 🙂
Blurry brain, blurry eyes, blurry heart, and yet we go on because we know.
Yes. I can relate! So blurry! May tomorrow be better.
Blurry brain indeed! Those days call for pizza and wine in our house. Happy Friday!
Yes, blurry brain. This is what I have. I just didn’t know the definition of the condition. Thank you for offering these words.
The four hours…three hours….two hours….convey such a sense of continual meetings without a break. Ending it with something there is just one of is perfect.
For sure, that is very fatiguing! You need to do some jumping jacks between meetings!
Oh yikes! That’s a lot for a single day in a single sentence! Wishing you a restful weekend.
