Transitions

As you all know, I’m  nearly done with this grad life (Hallelujah!) and I’ve started working on a few new projects. I’ve also created a new website that will serve as my main blog going forward.   I am transitioning from grad student to full time writer and publisher (and who knows what else, a sista is looking for a job too!), and I decided that I needed a new website/blog to represent this aspect of my work and life.  For those of you who have not already done so, please consider following me over at my new spot,  SAndreaAllen.  I’ll share updates, and even a little of my works in progress. 🙂

I still love this blog and I will continue to post here, but I do intend to spend more time over at the new spot.  I hope to see you there!

All in a Day’s Work

And I am queen of the world today! I cranked out 1471 words on the diss, finished up discussions on one online class and got to a good stopping point on the other, attended a boring online faculty development training, started a faculty certification module, (side gig stuff, don’t trip, we all got ’em), made an appointment with one of my chairs to discuss job apps, engaged in meaningful chats with the girlfriend AND the kid, washed my hair and dried it, and now I’m about to break for an early dinner. Later I am grading the LGBT class papers, folding up clothes, having ice cream and cookies with a friend, (I baked them yesterday, from scratch of course!), and reading for an hour.

Oh, and updated this blog.

So while none of this is actually blogworthy, I’m feeling a little full of myself today since I was out for the count with a nasty virus for most of late last week and the weekend. I feel like I’m finally back to myself, and my productivity level is up again. It also helps that I like to get up really early in the morning.

Also, a bit of motivation from the cranky co-chair as well as the cheerleader co-chair helped me to come up a good deadline for this chapter. Oh wait, I haven’t told them that yet, it’ll be a surprise. 🙂 October 15th it is people; imma need y’all to keep me accountable.

Back to the grind.
