a few things I have learned so far

It’s been a strange week. Long and draining, but good for the most part.

These are a few things I learned this week:

  • Editing will always be tedious, but you just have to do it. There are no shortcuts.
  • I have an unofficial second job. Writing does that.
  • There will always be difficult people. It’s best not to rise to the challenge.
  • I will miss my students once they graduate. They’ve been a fun bunch.
  • Some days, you just have to indulge in some retail therapy. Hello, amazon.

Some things that made me feel all proud:

  • A university administrator said I was one of their good hires.
  • I got to impress a few people with my Haiku Deck skills.
  • A group of seasoned academics actually listened to what I had to say.
  • I have been able to finish my last two 5K training sessions without feeling like death.
