For the month of March, I am participating in the Eleventh Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge. That means that I am writing every day for the month of March in the good company of the Two Writing Teachers community.
There are days, like today, when technology feels unfriendly.
I don't want to know how much time I have spent today watching the circle spin on my screen while something didn't load.
I don't want to know how many times I've gotten that message from google asking if I want to kill the page or wait. How did they ever decide to use the term "kill the page" anyway?
I don't want to know how long I spent figuring out how to situate post-it templates in such a way that I could print perfect sticky notes for a lesson tomorrow because when I did finally create the PERFECT sticky notes and get them all set for printing, my printer gave the message that it was out of ink and I'd need to replace the cartridge before I could print---and, no, I can't email my document to myself and print it at school because my printer at school has been out of toner for TWO WEEKS and I'm waiting for the new cartridge for that one to arrive.
I don't mean to yell.
There just are days, like today, when technology feels unfriendly.
At least I have a good book.
