Giving in to laziness

So, for a while, I've been posting here and on my livejournal. But I'm tired of that. For the near future, anyway, I'm only going to post on the livejournal, so cruise on over there if you want to read my blog. Feel free to voice your anger/frustration/disappointment over the change. ;)

Who is reading this anyway? The only one I know of is Cy.. and maybe Joe, Andrew, Alana?

I work in the daytime now!

Yesterday was my last night working at night. I'm so happy to be moving to the daytime. I will miss my students a lot though. I hope my replacements treat them well (I'm sure they will). We ended the semester on a good note: the students worked hard on a math test and some models for science, then we invited the other classes in to see our science museum.

So today I wore myself out moving my classroom, grading, making report cards, organizing my files, throwing stuff out, and on and on. Tomorrow is more of the same. I'm going to try to get lesson plans for the first week of the new semester. In a perfect world I'd always be at least a week ahead on my lesson plans.

Interesting Reading

Doug Muder has some interesting new articles up on his open source political journalism page. One is an expansion on his previous article about terrorist strategy; the other is a reframing of "judicial activism." Both are worth reading.
