Weekly Reflection 5/7/16

This week has been all about the writing.  After getting over the hurdle of my first History paper, and treading water by preparing myself just enough for my classes (readings...).  I was so stressed out last week about the pending deadlines that I seem to have psycho-somatically hurt my back.  I'm sleeping on the floor to fix/straighten my back.  Long hours hunched over my tiny laptop have done their damage.  Rediscovered my love for writing once I could focus on writing the Philosophy assignment.  Now I'm worried that I'm writing two papers, not one (it's currently 1000 words over the limit).

Weekly Reflection 4/16/16

This was a big week for me.  Turned 34.  Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm 34? Turns out: Yes.  Best B'day ever.  Breakfast Rave with the ALC community, then ALC day with a guest, then Philosophy of Education class with J. Fantuzzo.  Computer is getting less and less happy with me.  Wrote the Op-Ed and saw to it that the layout got done.  Busy busy busy.
