Well, my first week of school is behind me, and honestly, it wasn’t nearly as intimidating as I thought it might be (I even talked to people). My confidence is quite high for the term to come now, so that’s a relief.
I’ve met a couple of friendly students along the way, my professors seem great and I’m really enjoying the content of my classes so far. Political and Social Science, Psychology and of course, English, are my areas of study this term. I look forward to diving head first into all of them more deeply. There seems to be a lot of philosophy in both my psych and social political thought classes. Sweet.
I don’t think much about philosophy, but when I do – I think, therefore I am. 😉 Get it?
Aside from school, I’ve also been thinking a lot about my blogging life, about my blogging content and what’s going to be best for me moving forward… Really, I think, I just think too much! I’m over-thinking it, and now I’m thinking about all of the thinking that I do… It’s too much, really. All of this thinking.
I believe I’m just in need of shuffling my priorities. My injury is beginning to heal up more and more, I’m wanting to get back into athletic shape again. Perhaps not as big and beefy as I used to be, because I’ll have to be much more careful with myself, but I want to get lean again and strong. Lately I’ve been running more often which is great because I’d also like to build back up my tolerance for cardio. I really love running (I know you think I’m insane). Would be cool to do a half-marathon sometime, I might need to make up a bucket list and add that, then check it off.
Memo to self: Make a real bucket list
So anyways, for the longest time blogging has been my top priority, aside from being a father, but I feel blogging slowly trickling down my priority totem pole. Ahead of blogging I now have Dad duties, Schooling, Athletic goals and then Blogging…
Somewhere below that is dating/eating/sleeping.
I just need to find what works for me still. I’m going to stop pressuring myself to create daily posts though. If it happens, it happens and that’s great, but I won’t kill myself to keep it up. I’m hoping that I’ll be getting a lot of great material to work with through my course work. So hopefully you’re all keen. To some of you it might be like watching a baby try food for the first time. So that’s still endearing, right?
I figured we’re all writers here, so writing tips are never bad to throw out on a blog, and everyone enjoys psychology, don’t they? I think most people enjoy trying to figure out how other people work and how we work ourselves. Political and social science might be try at some points, but I’m sure I can find some inspiration in the philosophy. 😉
