Slacking

Dear Blog,

Hi. I miss you a great deal, and I really want to write more, but I have been swamped by life and work lately.

On the life front, my daughter turned one, and my soon-to-be-four son is slightly sociopathic. As such, attention is slightly diverted. Beyond that, I am trying not to get overwhelmed by the never ending Honey-Do lists my wife gives me.

It is work, however, that absorbs most of my time. My students are slackers, not unlike me with you, dear blog. They choose to do the minimum amount of work and want the maximum amount of credit for it...which saddens me to no end. The very fact that I had a student ask me how old Malcolm X is now shows me that they are not getting the knowledge they need.

So I trudge through realizing that for the first time in my short career...I want summer to come. I want the children to go away and leave me in the peace that is my family and freedom.

I'm sorry, dear blog, that I have been neglecting you. I will attempt to get better.

Sincerely,

Ironic.
