As one of my clever little bloggies pointed out upon reading my last post, “Mr.Locke, the only silence around is that of your blog.” Oh, the irony and hypocrisy of it all. The worst part of it is that I could probably make all sorts of excuses about the crazy time of year, the piles of work, blah, blah, blah. And then I hear the little “Mr. Locke the teacher” voice in the back of my head saying (as if I were my own student) “All the excuses in the world are worth about as much as a refrigerator at the North pole…” and also “There are no emergencies–only failures to plan.” AAARRGGGH! Go away, teacher! “It’s for your own good–the habits you make now will follow you for the rest of your life!” No…I can’t take it anymore! I want to be lazy and bad and part of the mediocrity!
[Suddenly looks around and realizes the room has gone silent. Everyone is staring]
So…guess I need to get back into the swing of blogging, huh? Nothing like some good inner dialogue to put things into perspective. Oh, and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. [smiles sheepishly and goes about business]
