today’s homework is easy. my philosophy of work can be summed up in just a few words.
work hard. do the job you’d want done if someone asked you to do it. finish your to do list weeks before it absolutely must be done. i started that practice in grad school, when i would write papers months in advance and having any work done before the due date became known as “doing-it-the-sarah-LASTNAME-way” (oh no, i’m not ready to share my last name with you here, not yet).
the statement that usually follows that is play hard, but i really don’t. i do, however, relax hard.
today, buttered noodles & found pennies make me think of bayberry lane. missing you, grandma.
i’m uninspired and cranky. partially because i have a very, very long to do list that is not comfortably completed in advance. tomorrow, i start week three of being a Real Live School Psychologist– no longer a grad student or an intern. no one to hide behind except for my doctoral degree.
i wonder how long i can fool them into thinking i’m as smart as my doctorate makes me sound.
