I’ve been thinking about this for months now–maybe a year or more.
And then I read this post last week, which so resonated I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind. (What’s funny is that even after he wrote it, he encourages people at the end of the post to get in touch with him.) But what happened to me is that I realized all that I read in such random blips really can, at time, upset me. Now that I’m spending less and less time thinking about the classroom and more and more time writing, I think it’s time to let it go.
I’ll admit: I’m an annoyingly oversensitive person. I do believe this is both a strength and a weakeness. I have a tendency to go with my gut more often that not because it yells very, very loudly.
My gut tells me April is a great month to take a break from social media in general. I am awaiting spring weather and all that it brings to my head and heart (I”m sure I suffer from SAAD).
Now, back to the writing….
