Along with many other people, I should be doing some of the vast amount of school work I have to do.

Instead, I made cake.

The dishes, the laundry, and other
Domesticities (I feel like my mother!).
They need attention;
Then there's my apprehension
To start studying. Oh what a bother.

What I should be doing, it's short and concise
I have lots of stuff - which I should revise,
however I'm feeling much less than okay
I it feels like shifting this to 'nother day.
However one thing is causing me sorrow,
the test which requires this will be tomorrow.
So while I am pondering what stuff to skip
I'm here in this forum - and writing this quip.

I'm reading the fora

I should be taking a walk in the sun
But I fear my seclusion has just begun
I'm at work most dreadded
Covering up documents shreadded
The sun is at it's peak
And i should take a leak
Perhaps a meaning
I should seak
or a purpose be gleaning

I did 95% of my homework in High School during school. If you try hard enough you can get it so you barely have to do anything outside of school.

But it seems that the Partial Fractions
And calculating endless reactions
Have culminated in my distraction

an interesting change of phase
enter'd in thorfluff's metered phrase.
a cure eye us new distinction
one for talking 'bout excretions
of the bodily and human kind,
and although some peeps might mind
i do not think i care at all.
perhaps i lack the wherewithal
to gag and choke at such a thing
as though my neck were tied with string
because i think such crude descriptions
are rather part of life's convictions
and so i applaud our rhyming soul
for bearing his before the whole
of this collected population
of the x, kcd nation
and now forth to laundry hence
to hang upon, a rail or fence.
Truth be told/If I can be so bold/Your sig did inspire/What here did transpire/So that you would me admire/cause me to aspire/to greater heights/of lyrical plights.

The house is rather messy
And I swore that this would change.
Now I'm getting rather stressy,
since 6 o'clock so quickly came.

I said I would visit some friends
In about half-an-hour's time
To meet their new baby boy twins
And to be late would be a crime

You see, I should have gone last night
But I got home from work too late
So we made another time
And tonight is that set date.

So I should quickly try to sort
At least the worst of the debris
So to logging off I must resort
And stop this fora browsery!

I should be:

2. Finishing the taxes so I can get my refund

3. Writing a letter to some state senators regarding a certain piece of legislation that I really want passed

4. Cleaning stuff (kitchen, bathroom, guns, living room...)

as a teacher i'm going to weigh in here and say this should not be encouraged! At least in class. at lunch is fine!

however, as a lazy person, i can say that doing as little HW as possible is a good way to approach it. i know i did very little for my degree - even going so far as to only start visiting the library for my dissertation, and even then for controlled, limited bursts. i still managed to argue my way through seminars though, taking the devil's advocate pov for $h!ts and giggles... :D

oh, an on topic - i've just got back from work for the week so i should probably be marking, or planning for next week, or doing some of the mountain of washing/tidying i have to do now i'm home. but i can't be arsed! sleep would be a better use of my time though, i'm shattered :(

As an aspiring teacher I'm going to have to quote Mark Twain: "Never let school get in the way of your education". Homework is mostly bullshit. I say mostly cuz there's really no way to learn maths, imo, without repetition. Even if you do learn it sans busy work your problem solving techniques will be total shit.

On the side of what should I be doing RIGHT NOW!!! The answer is testing more crap. I need to run a test that requires some older equipment, however, and there's no easy way to determine when a product was made. So I'm feeling reticent. XKCD forums are much more amusing than searching through a serial number database.
