  • Mastery – clear all photos from my phone at end of week, weekly blogging on saturdays
  • P1–>P2 – juggling, featured images are standardized, moderating ALC Melbourne
  • Imp –>P1 – recording my Comitas lectures and posting them on this blog.  takes more work than it should, but this is great.


  • Imp – went to the pool once this week and now i know the ins and outs: committing to 3 times a week, for 30 minute swims (at least).
  • Imp – complete my REQUIRED readings first.  It’s Saturday and I still have plenty left to do, though i’ve read plenty of amazing extra stuff for Logic (Lepore) and Caribbean studies (Williams, Smith etc).

Clearings –

  • more trouble in my apartment building this week – exploding radiators!
  • there’s just not enough hours in the week!!!
  • the Uris swimming pool is kind of gross.  and weird.
  • i wish Soundcloud was free – they won’t let me have more than 1.5hrs of audio.  so i switched my method! (eat that!)
  • textbooks are waaaay too expensive! (libraries are great!)
  • I couldn’t attend my Oma’s funeral.  My older brother filled me in.  Sadly only a handful of people at the funeral, makes me feel worse.

Standout moments of the week

Hanging out with @abbyo and Alex Khost at Teachers College.  I loved the conversations we were having together before the P4C workshop as much as I enjoyed the workshop itself.

Hanging out with Jack and Dakota twice in one week, but especially post-MR at the Judson church.  Loved seeing some dance stuff with those guys.

Discovering the Butler library stacks which was just incredible.  Really made me want to bring in some of the kids into that space (@failspy, @douglasawesome, @pigsfly, @thewitchqueen908 – i bet you’d all have your minds blown) who would be as awed by it as I was
