Almost “Winter Break” Time

One more day of work (Friday). And a day I have to be at a clinic for a 7:00 meeting. I have a lot to do, and hopefully I can leave the office tomorrow on a high note. Today, it took me almost 2 hours to get home. Traffic was insane; I feel it will be the same tomorrow. (Let’s cross our fingers that the powers-that-be let us leave a little early). 

What are my weekend/holiday plans? I’m on call for the hospital, and that’s 24/7. I will keep my phone with me at all times. I will be alone this year, which is fine. I’m getting some new furniture delivered Saturday, so I’m going to spend a lot of time building stuff, rearranging, cleaning, and organizing — all stuff I like to do, honestly. I’ve already organized journal articles (printed copies), so all I need to do for school-prep is research newer articles on microlearning and upload them into Zotero. (And tag them and make sure their details are accurate). 

In a few, I’m going to order groceries from Amazon Fresh. I need to figure out what I want to make this weekend. I feel like trying something new…

Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS, everybody.

Finally… “Winter” Break

Finally. Time for winter break. Old-school me refers to this as Christmas break, but let’s not offend anybody, eh? 

This last term was busy. My leadership class was great, as the professor was extremely helpful and left many personal comments in all assignments. My research class? Just the opposite. Canned (pre-written) responses 100% of the time; zero in-paper critiques. Can’t grow much if professors don’t contribute. I was also a graduate assistant for a research class, and that was fun (and time consuming). Not only did I get to contribute to discussion forums, I got to try my hand at providing concept paper feedback along with the professor.

During break, I have a few school-related tasks I need to complete. First, I need to go through all of my printed journal articles (yes, I print them out) and file them appropriately so I can reference them quickly in the future. Second, I need to work on organizing my Zotero references for the concept paper class. That particular class is the “gateway” to candidacy, and candidacy is necessary if you want to proceed with your dissertation and completion of the program.
