I have a problem: I am addicted to blogging and everything that it entails, but I don’t think there is a 12 step program that can help me, or even a name for this ailment, so like a good blogger, I will enlighten you, my blogging compatriots, in the hopes that it will help end my suffering and possibly yours.
How this all startedThe predicament I’m in sort of snuck up on me, so I am not really sure exactly when the addiction was formed, but I do know that I lacked a creative outlet and a friend suggested I start a blog. I remember the conversation like it was yesterday.
Said the friend, “I read that if you want to get back into writing you should start a blog.”
To which I quickly replied, “A what? A log?”
The listeners in my life: StudentsMy students don’t listen.
Here’s a conversation I had on Tuesday:
“Complete the questions from section 2 on page 27 for Thursday. You will have two days to do them, and you don’t have to include the vocabulary terms. We will go over those tomorrow in class.”
“Do we have to do the vocabulary terms?”
“No, you don’t have to do the vocabulary terms.”
Thursday rolls around and these are the comments from several students:
(Him)"Oh, you don't have to rush home. I'm taking him with me."
I decide to just roll my eyes and sweetly end the conversation.
