Five Minute Friday Link-up: Another

Happy Friday, y’all! It’s time for the weekly Five Minute Friday writing prompt. To play along, write on your own blog and then link up here. I’ve been visiting some amazing bloggers recently. The talent out there is incredible!

This week’s FMF writing prompt is: ANOTHER

START

When I think of the word another, I can’t help but think of how we are living Groundhog Day every single day.

We wake up to another day of being at home (which I don’t dislike in and of itself, mind you.)

I sit down to another day of checking email, responding to students’ questions, grading, and trying, haphazardly, to take attendance for invisible students.

I think of my students who are facing another day of endless online assignments and, if they’re lucky (or unlucky depending on your perspective), jobs.

It can seem like an endless line of monotonous days because it’s always another of the same that went before.

For me, though, I’m not minding this.

I crave the routine. The familiarity of another day gives me comfort because I know how to approach my day.

I’m not one for frenzy, so I’ll gladly welcome another day in comfortable clothes, hair not straightened – barely brushed in fact.

Sometimes another is actually okay.

STOP
