Over the past school year, I did several things.
I (somehow) passed two different online classes while doing most of the work the week before the respective class reached its conclusion.
I let my motivation fall so low that I was unable to pull it back up for the remainder of the year--to the point where, for most of our fourth quarter, I found myself saying, "I can't wait for next year, because so-and-so-mistake-from-this-year won't happen again!"
I managed, once again, to rewrite a large part of the district "you will take this class this year" flow to satisfy my needs.
I watched my productivity fall below an acceptable level--to the point where only a major scare was able to push it back up to where I wanted it to rest.
And finally, I made a promise to myself that next year, everything will be in overdrive. I've already started my preparations for each different organization I'm running next year, and I have plans in place to finally make a dream of community WiFi a reality.
This year will not happen again. Trust me.
