Weekly Reflection 2/20/16

This week I've found myself using Trello less and less as I go through my days.  This is more on account of being overburdened with activity than with not needing or wanting to.  The fact that I am posting this two days late is testament to my 'busy-ness'.  Thankfully, there was still time for a beer with Comitas.

Progress:

  • Mastery – Juggling, blog posting with featured images.
  • P1->P2 – Recording audio during lectures for listening on walks, making ALC offerings on Sunday.
  • Imp -> P1 – Reading my required readings before secondary readings or other interests.

New:

  • Imp – Swimming twice a week, because three times a week seems to much to move right now.
  • Imp – reviewing chinese characters by using memrise and making my own lists.

Standout moments of the week

Definitely completing that essay was a rush.  I had that writing block -> clearing moment of relief which I achieved by perseverance.  Reread all of the associated readings just prior to writing about them.  Going to Jack Gray’s session which was far busier than I had expected.  Lots of wonderful people.  Loved the way that he ran the group activities. Gives me ideas for how I should run the monthly ALF interest nights.  Hanging out with Comitas and having a beer with him and some other students of his (Jane and Jude and ?) and discovering that he is called by his surname ‘Comitas’ by those familiar to him.
