A gentle undirected note that hashtags here don't work in the same way as on Twitter. They're purely for searching, not for metrics.
This may not be everyone's view, but Mastodon (to me, at least) shouldn't be about accumulating metrics - it can be so much more: it can be about building community.
Have I finished marking? Yes, one class worth. One to go. Hate that I have 2 writing courses in my workload. Still, the students are largely trying hard. Only two blatant wikipedia plagiarists, and even then just a sentence or two I could comment with "Please do not do this again."
I just posted the summary of my presentation about listening at excitELT on my blog. #TESOL https://freelanceteacherselfdevelopment.wordpress.com/2018/05/09/whose-cared-a-lesson-in-excitelt-tokyo-2018-hangout-summary/
Link woulda helped, huh?
Ever find something that you don't remember clearly that you wrote and so you have to do a web search to make sure?
Me: You are in full on procrastination mode.
Also me: No, really I need neocities for a talk.
Me: Yeah sure.
Also me: But you know, it's for the kids.
Me: Uh huh. Get to work.
Also me: Does laundry instead of prepping talk.

after years and years, why do academic library e-books continue to suck so very badly? Ebrary, Proquest: just awful. Keyboard actions don't go as expected, internal search is wonky, and of course note-taking is crippled because DRM. Every time I see "ebook available" in my library I first get excited then realize it's worse that getting a beat up old paper copy.

Watching Horns, starring Daniel Radcliffe. Turned off as it is unbearable (shitty and just ideologically, too). Does absolutely every American TV series or film have to include a rape scene now? Does every story have to involve vigilante white people? For fuck's sake.
