#SOL21: Final Four

Not an elimination.

Not a bracket.

Not a sport.

The final four days of 2021. What am I willing to prioritize as 2021 wanes? What am I willing to let go? What am I willing to put on my “To Do” list? What won’t even get a mention on my “To Do” list?

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!

This image seems to fit some of my end of the year traveling. And yet, it seems too simple. Are all the choices really straight lines? What if I venture off the track?

My final four days of 2021:

Finalizing my 2021 #OLW (One Little Word)

Updating syllabi and moodle courses




I don’t yet know the format for playing. Perhaps in fabric choices, Perhaps in writing or reading choices.

How will you end 2021? How will you begin 2022?


Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for this weekly forum.

  1. I think PLAYING needs to be at the top of your list, not the bottom.

  2. I am with Kevin, it might be a good idea to move PLAY to the top of the list. My plan is less doing and more being. No to-do list. If I get anything done, I’ll put it on my ta-da list. 🙂 Wishing you a joyful change of years!

    1. Playing has been at the top of my list for over a week. Love family!

      1. A week and more of play – I am happy for you!

  3. I agree with the other two. With the way things are going playing should be a top priority. In fact, I am thinking about making “fun” my OLW for 2022. Need to think about it a bit more before deciding.

  4. I agree with Kevin. PLAYING needs to be top of your list and mine too! In fact, more playing for everyone!
