Many apologies for not posting over the past two months/posting sporadically. This semester has been the “perfect storm” for me in terms of trying to find a work-life balance. With two classes back-to-back early in the morning, I really don’t have time to prepare for anything else. After teaching those classes, I either have classes myself to take (Modern British Literature) or I have office hours where I’m trying to grade or prepare for the next day’s class. After that, I generally go to my second job or to my other class 6pm-9pm (luckily that class is only 1 day a week, but my second job is the other 4 days.

All that to say, time has been a real struggle this semester. I’ve been fairly consistent with writing creatively after coming home after my second job because I have a routine where I reward myself with a snack of some sort and I write as I’m eating the snack. 250 words can go pretty quickly, but with a blog, I generally write double that 250 words, sometimes more. Then add tagging, finding and downloading an image, sourcing that image, and scheduling the entry, all take a considerable amount of time.
I’m going to try to be more determined to get blogs up even if it is later in the day. I like scheduling them so that they pop up in the mornings, but I just need to get them done and out, no matter when that happens. That’s what is going to happen with this entry, btw.
Well, that’s all I have for now–nothing world changing. Just trying to get back on schedule with a super hard/super intense schedule that leaves me with little-to-no time for work-life balance. Hopefully, I’ll get better over time.
