Weekly Reflection 3/26/16

It was always going to be a crazy busy week after returning from PES.  I think I coped pretty well, but now I really am feeling a desire to sequester myself away to a quiet corner of a library and get in deep.  So much to cover in such a short period of time.  Lots to read.  More to write. Habits to be bettered. Connections to be made.

New!

  • Record a Voice Memo thru the week – brain dump on Saturdays.
  • Set an hour aside EACH DAY (big ask) for writing of some kind.  Response to preventing marathon writing sessions.

Progress

  • P1 -> P2 Labelling system
  • P1 -> P2 Weekly blog post about the ALC day

Problems

  • No progress = Chinese character practice for 10 minutes each day
  • No progress = Exercise for 15 minutes (each day)
  • No progress = Swim once a week.  I just haven’t swum at all.  More intention for that now.
  • No progress = Read required texts first

Trash

  • Trodden Path method for my study habits etc.  This would be too much work, and I am already making micro-assessments throughout the week.  I trust myself.

  • I played computer games as a kind of stimulus response (after my hard work sought pleasure)
  • Have not emailed anyone from PES yet, when I wanted to thank them early as possible.
  • falling behind my obligations
  • submitted my assignment a little late
  • did not complete my Vital Idea assignment
  • did not do an ALF interest night after all (and this is at the bottom of my concerns!)
