So far, today has been another morning filled with productivity. I was up at 7 and read for the diss for over an hour, took a few notes that will jump start me tomorrow morning. I also wrote my lecture for this online class I’m teaching (y’all know I got a couple of side hustles), and finished setting up the classroom for that course. I’ve also washed and folded two loads of laundry, checked in on my other online class, and straightened up the office a little. I do plan to take the rest of the day off, because this week is already filling up fast with meetings, coffee dates, and other academic ephemera.
Oh, and did I tell y’all that my Mac crashed the other day? Thankfully, I kept my old Dell from back in the day and it’s a viable solution for the next few weeks. I am definitely replacing the Mac, but I’ll need to wait until a little bit, ’cause you know, money don’t grow on trees.
All in all a fair start to the week, and I’m really committed to keeping to my schedule this semester. Grad school is sucking the soul out of me, and I’m the only one who can do something about that.
Here’s to a productive semester!
