Oh, I Chose


Yea, I told her, I firmly believe that if you can’t do something because of homework, then you don’t have too much homework- you simply managed your time poorly.

And I do believe that.

And I also believe in humility.

Because this weekend I chose,

From Thursday night I chose,

To do so very many things

That were fun, engaging, challenging,

Real life things.

And yet they were not homework things,

They were not assigned things.

And here I am, on Sunday night,

Wilting into my pillow with a cough

And a long list I’ve yet to accomplish.

And yes, I’m right, I didn’t manage my time well,

At least not with homework in mind.

But at the same time,

I’m not sure I regret it.

    I think you handled your time very well. We all need to kick over the traces and do fun things once in a while. I’m sure your homework waited patiently for you.
