Something I thought about:

  • This was a week of many small disasters, beginning with learning on Monday morning that the full-time childcare I had arranged for the week had fallen through, so I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to get back to the status quo. I was thinking about balance and how hard it is to both juggle and to recover when things go sideways.

Something I did:

  • Finished marking student essays and sent semester grades.
  • Read and reverse outlined my diss.
  • Worked on revising the second half of the diss.
  • Slept way too little. Juggled.
  • Celebrated a birthday.

Something I read:

  • Student essays!
  • Also my own diss. And the middle chapter way too many times.
