Something I thought about:

  • Mostly getting back on track with smaller outstanding items while waiting for diss comments. Some of this was thinking through fall courses and any changes I want to make — like I’m trying to figure out how to build in more in-class writing / quiet reflection time. I had to come up with some exercises quickly last year to cover workshop absences due to illness, but I liked the results and want to do this more intentionally.

Something I did:

  • Worked on some smaller writing projects.
  • Finally got a Legendary badge in Duolingo!

Something I read:

Abandonment has an intrinsic connection with both dependency and with power. Whenever one says abandonment, it already implies power, an unjust structure, and the dependency of one on another.
