It was a little after 6pm. In my head I made every excuse I could think of to not go. I had a long day and I was really tired. I had a lot of work to do at home as well. I deserved to leave “early”. I was about to leave my classroom, but then I decided to grab my gym clothes and sneakers and head upstairs to the gym. I decided to stop making excuses.
I did make it to the gym upstairs and ending up having a good workout. Sometimes we just need to fight the excuses and suck it up. The same thing goes for writing. There’s no cutting corners in becoming a better writer, you just have to practice it. Hopefully, writing this blog and the Slice of Life entries every Tuesday will help me become a better writer and ultimately better at teaching writing to my students.
