Summer can be a double-edged sword. As educators, we are relieved to have the time to regroup and rejuvenate our content and minds. However, we sometimes pile our to do lists and DIY projects so high that we become overwhelmed once again by the sheer volume of things we would like to accomplish in two to three months.

The same holds true for my computer desktop. From my own experience, I have found that when all of the folders, screenshots, and web clips are nice and tidy, I can easily jump into checking email or blogging rather than spend time looking for files.
