I am not sure where the time has gone, but the past two weeks have whizzed by. So, what’s been going on?
First of all, work started up and there have been daily changes to my schedule. Originally, I was scheduled to co-coordinate a new semester course that I spent a lot of time working on with my colleagues at the end of last academic year. The plan was to work about half time in that role with teaching and half time in the CEI. Then, some space opened up allowing me to work 3/4 time in the CEI and only teach five hours. However, this meant that I had to give up the coordinating and let go of all the work that had been done up until then. It was a bit difficult to make that decision, but I felt it was for the best. I thought all was good, but then today the schedule was threatened to be changed again…. I did my best to try to keep things are they are and I think that it is finally settled. So it seems that I will be able to do 3/4 time in the CEI, which is where I have been wanting to make a move. Initially, I was planned to do some content development for training purposes and design along with some research support. However, as of today I will be like a research assistant on a large-scale research project through the CEI and also (hopefully) doing research support. So…that’s a sigh of relief!
I have started doing some private tutoring in order to bump up my income a bit as I need to make the bills go away faster. So far, I’ve got two students that seem like they’ll be long-term and promising.
This weekend I finished my last co-active coaching course and am not a qualified coach! I got sick with a cold as well, so am still recovering from that.
So, that’s my life the past two weeks in brief! Hopefully, I will be back to a more normal life again soon.
More to come,
