New month, new habits

In addition to beginning the new month with anticipation and excitement I’m also going to try to instill to habit of blogging everyday, even if it’s just a little bit. Today I taught my class and it went pretty well. Students got into a spirited discussion that digressed a little from the readings but I was glad to hear them have some thoughts or opinions. And new people spoke who don’t normally speak so that was great.

I need to start and finish grading their papers for Thursday. I’ve actually organized the class on an excel spread sheet which is a good thing. So I feel good about being almost organized. Now I see why teaching takes up so much time and most academics don’t want to do it lol. But I like the subject matter that I’m teaching and it feels good to have my own classroom. We’ll see if this thought continues throughout the 2nd half of the semester.

Yesterday I didn’t get to do any writing because I was prepping for class. So I’m going to try and get that done today.

Added later: I wrote about 556 words on my dissertation tonight.
