Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

Finals Time is a Quiet Time

I'm struggling right now trying to teach students how to cite references in perfect MLA style.

It's an uphill battle, but every so often there is a student who just gets it. And it makes it all worthwhile for those few minutes until I grade another paper which makes me cry.

I have been letting myself work on a few ornaments here and there and I'm posting a bit more often on Facebook. I've been finding the neatest paper ornaments that I am dying to try!

You can follow me on Instagram, too, under the username rhymeswithmagic.

In the meantime, here are two projects I've completed in the past week. Yes, it's a Dr. Who-fest!
