During these eight weeks, I’ll need to learn a new programming language (as well as remember how to program), along with other aspects for a course I haven’t taught since before the curriculum changed eight years ago. Don’t get me wrong, I’m keen to give it a go, but it means all my other courses REALLY need to be in place in advance. And I didn’t do much with that over the last year. Busy with the writing. The failed writing.
Yeah, all the writing I did over the last 52 weeks? I somehow feel like I’m worse off than I was back in July 2016. At least back then I had a plan, and there was some hope that I could get more visibility. Now, pretty much no hope of finding time to market myself, or be noticed by anyone, not that I managed it over the last year anyway. We’ll see if I can make peace with that.
I am still drawing too, and now doing Thursday comic chats, based on the work of others. Feels like that’s all I have going for me creatively. If you haven’t noticed, I’m rather depressed.
Item counts run Sunday (July 2) to Saturday (July 8).
Step Count 2016: About 52,900.
STEP COUNT 2017: About 61,600. 21 stars.
When I get depressed, I can wander aimlessly. Good for my physical activity.
