I saw this sentiment a couple months ago and realized it pretty much sums up the experience for me. As I am sure you can tell, I don't plan much of this blogging stuff out...most of the time I am just living and then sharing it.
For instance, over the years, I have had a bad habit of never really mentioning that I have a blog. Friends here and there have discovered it, puzzled because they had no clue. Heck, even my own mom had to find it on her own. I guess something I invest a little time in almost every single day ended up fitting in so seemlessly that it often does not exist in my consciousness.
Lately I have been so focused on developing ideas for the two classrooms that I am lucky enough to lead each week, that I feel like I am lacking ideas a little around here. As much as I am completely and totally enamoured with throwing my mind and soul into planning lectures and participation opportunities (in one class we have already done twenty-two different activities and it's only halfway through the semester), I want to make sure to keep going with all the other creative pursuits too.
That is why I was thinking I need to do a little more planning around here. Maybe a few brainstorming lists, a calendar or something to help re-infuse some good old-fashioned crafty enthusiasm. If you have any ideas/requests for something you'd like to see I would really love to hear them, it would be a great motivation to start making something in addition to all the sociological class activities.
And it's not very fair to ask for something without offering something in return...I filled a little priority mail box with some fun supplies to share. I'll do a random drawing for it late Friday afternoon.
