So, let’s see how last month’s goals shaped up while I wasn’t on Twitter:
continue to teach 2 courses read for comprehensive exams read for reviews get my house in order for April visitors
- write 3 chapters of novel
record podcasts play with my nephew commit to getting healthy again
As compared to April’s goals, which — what’s that? There are only 9 days of April left? I didn’t set any April goals here? And am definitely not going to have written 3 chapters?
It really does disturb and upset me to realize how quickly time passes — unmarked time, time I can’t remember spending — when I’m available to social media. I need restraints on it, and right now a number of other factors are making it uncomfortably all-or-nothing in terms of the attention I give it. So it’s got to be nothing.
May is full of exams, turning in grades, revisions, and travel. I need the extra focus that comes of not having my head full of noises.
That said, I’ve started a newsletter! I’ll send the first mailing out soon. If you’d like to keep up to date with my news and appearances and so on while I’m off social media — and my goodness but there’s a lot of travel coming up this summer — I invite you to subscribe.
