blog every day 9/ten things tuesday

 9. Make a list of everything you'd like to say no to.

I'm combining this with my Ten Things Tuesday:

1) No to having to grade every paper that passes my desk (metaphorically speaking as I'm mostly paperless).

2) No to changing the daily schedule again.

3) No to teaching American Studies II.  I LOVE teaching American Studies I, however.

4) No to feeling like I have to finish reading books that don't grab me.

5) No to winter temperatures.  This morning was -15.

6) No to having new technology thrown at me with the expectation that I will master it with no training or time to learn to use it on my own.

7) No to relying on online shopping because there aren't very many stores in the region.  The lack of variety is boring.

8) No to minimum retirement ages.  I want to retire after 25 years and not push myself to a certain age.

9) No to top-down decisions disguised as consensus decisions.

10) No to sameness.  I want something to look forward to.  I want to go somewhere and do something.
