All work and no play makes Craig a dull boy. So, I decided to start and finish my days with something interesting. I moved a few books and made room for pull ups! I can't do that many, yet. But, I do as many as I can when I arrive at work and again before I leave. My short-term goal is to work up to sets of 10. I might do pull ups more often during winter because I sometimes get sleepy or cold. I think exercise is a good way to warm up quickly.
The metal bookshelf is nice because I can use a magnet to hang something in front of me. I can review articles for my research or look at outlines of papers I have to write. I find looking at outlines helps me organize my thoughts. Today, I decided to hang a copy of motivational teaching practices by Dornyei (2001). He has many great ideas about how to help groups stay motivated.
