Lack of Tumblr posts means my real-life productivity has increased…which is a good thing.
I’ve increased my volunteer hours with Project Open Hand and Glide Community Housing both because I enjoy it and I need to collect more hours for my social work program application. I’m also looking at more involved volunteer positions that include pretty comprehensive training. Because they’re such good opportunities, however, there are waitlists and rigorous applications processes. I don’t know if I’ll get into any of them, but at least I tried, right?
I also decided to knuckle down and actually do my research/critique assignment. The good news is I finally have a working draft…the bad news is I always have enough material and ideas for a book, thus there’s still a lot of editing and revising to do. I’m Alice In Wonderland when it comes to writing; I’m wordy and tend to meander down rabbit holes. I’m headed up to Canada, however, next week so am determined to have it off my plate by then. I’m looking forward to hot summer weather and catching up with my family.
Four years of writing news story format, blogging, and four-years post university have ruined my academic paper-writing skills.
I have to write a max 2,000 word critique and it’s killing me. I spent all afternoon on it and haven’t come up with anything coherent.
Even more pathetic is the fact that it’s an online course with personally-set deadlines and I essentially don’t have any other daily commitments.
Part of me wants to cry at how stupid I’ve become and put it off another day.
