Getting my priorities straight

I haven't kept up on my resolution to post more. Or rather the posts I have need to be edited before I publish them.

I haven't gotten all of my grades in the computer (they're due in the morning).
I don't know what in the world I'm doing with the general math class that starts tomorrow (I was told last Wednesday that I'd be teaching it).

Actually, I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing with my other classes either, at least after we've reviewed the midterm. Having a standardized test go on during one class period means all the Algebras get out of sync if I continue with plan. My out of sync geometries are getting combined. And advanced math, who knows.

But I couldn't stop thinking about Dan's contest. I've had sketches for a week and the deadline's in two hours. Sneaking it in before getting the last grades in and getting some sleep.

Disclaimer, this isn't where I want it to be at all. Colors. Charts. Lines. Pictures. I just got Keynote and Number and am still trying to figure out how to do everything I want. Really, this is the first draft on the computer. I just knew I'd regret it if I didn't get something pulled out now.

And for what it's worth, this is pretty much the conversation I had on the plane to point Q 3.5 weeks ago.

I like it, I like it. That double pie was wicked smart.

The double pie is the slide that feels most incomplete to me. Trying to figure out how to arrange them in order on the new program was icky. And that was the point where my colors failed. But I loved the concept and just couldn't substitute anything else.
