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.
- PMB update
- Stand out moments of the week
- 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.
- P1 -> P2 Labelling system
- P1 -> P2 Weekly blog post about the ALC day
- 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
- 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.
- Haven’t been caring for my body well
- Using unsustainable study habits by default – marathons of writing for the deadlines
- Didn’t take enough photos this week
- Always expanding my reading list instead of reviewing what I’ve committed to (idea!)
- 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!)
- An amazing day at the ALC on Wednesday where I could enjoy myself
- Remember how amazing PES was and the people I met
- That moment that a bird landed on Bernie Sanders’ stage and everyone lost it
- Success in my gratitude circle offering (i felt like it worked): Babbling rethink
- Read half of Class War
- Signed up for the Academic Festival at TC
- Wrote my second paper for Philosophies of Education (submitted!)
- Colloquium readings – breezed thru them
