Dear fellow bloggers and readers alike,
I am sitting in the University of Michigan’s Union Reading Room with a Klean Kanteen of coffee to my side and an extra chair to put my feet up on. I am in my ideal working spot and have everything I need to get cracking for a productive night.
As I look through my “List of Things to do Before December 18th at 7:21 pm”, which by the way, is when my train takes off back to Chicago in case you wanted to invite me out to dinner or hang in the library sometime before the holidays, I am coming to terms with my time frame and work load over the next couple of weeks. I can skip over subjects like physics and sustainability and society for the week, as they are a little less demanding of my attention at the time being. I really need to focus my attention on history and writing, though, as I know I have plenty to do to prepare for their respective deadlines.
“What’s left” is what I always ask myself when I look at my to do list in writing. I feel like it all just never ends! So here’s what’s left:
- I absolutely hate my “How and Why I Write” insert. I worked for hours to get something started and I just could not get something on paper that was from the heart. I need to completely re-look at that if I want to have a good piece to put in my portfolio.
- My ePortfolio is really coming along! I have all of the pages formatted. All I need to do is insert projects as I come to finishing them. All of the photos in my website are my own, which I think adds a special little flare to the collection.
- I am collecting information, pictures and quotes for my new remediation project. I started all over with that project too.
Lately, I just feel like I can not make decisions about my writing. I think I might just be about run down in terms of writing capacity for the semester. I will be able to pull through in order to produce these last few projects, but I am just beyond pooped in trying to write things I really like!
Well, that’s enough for now.
Status update: in.
