This is my third year of the Slice of Life Challenge. What is easy is that I feel like I am visiting an old friend. It feels comfortable. I love touching base with a large community who are here to support me. I participate in the weekly Slice of Life because I want to keep in touch and maintain some type of writing routine for myself. I wanted to participate in the Classroom Slice of Life, but it has been a challenging year in my classroom and I felt it would put too much added stress. I decided I could participate by reading and making comments on students blogs. That way it would give me some background knowledge going forward next year.
What has been difficult for me is to making the Slice of Life part of my daily routine. I decided for the most part I would write a Slice of Life at night before going to bed to have it ready for the following day. Mornings can be hectic and I knew it would nag at me if I didn’t do it before I left for work. It would nag at me all day. During breaks I check my phone and I love seeing there are comments on my writing. Nothing like compliments to brighten your day!
