There really was little doubt, but I survived my own personal “Hell Week” of working full-time, attending classes (and even taking an exam in psychology!), and working a couple of nights as a security officer for a local festival. I missed my goal of posting daily to all of my blogs, but every other day isn’t too bad 🙂 Now, I’m off to finish up my lunch break so that I can complete my 13-hour day. After tomorrow’s all-day class, hell week is finally over 🙂
Someone should have warned me that this week was going to be “Hell Week,” but it’s of my own making.
This week, several things have happened at once. First, I work my normal job (about 44 hours a week). On top of that, second summer session started at school. I’m only taking 6 credit hours (one 5 credit-hour class plus a workshop), but that’s three nights a week. And to top it off, I’m working two night shifts of security detail for a local festival. And did I mention that my new goal is to post to all three of my blogs daily? I’ve obviously missed that target already, but every-other-day is still better than what I was doing 🙂
Finally, I get a week off from work. I have been coding in PHP for several months now, and sometimes you just need to step away from it. So, I’m taking this week so that when I get back, I’ll be more productive than ever 🙂 Everyone have a great week! And happy Independence Day! 🙂
I have been doing a major balancing act between blogging, work, school, and home life, and I have a ton of stuff clipped to my Bloglines clip blog that I’ve been meaning to add commentary to and post here. But I’ve always had a poor sense of balance and I haven’t gotten to it yet. But many things are coming to a close for me: classes are over for the quarter except for exams. My online application successfully launched on Friday of last week – all that is left is a little bit of tweaking here and there and then working on feature requests (development is never really done). So with all of these things winding down, I should find myself with enough time to dedicate a little bit of it to blogging again. I feel like it’s time to start getting serious about blogging. Maybe I should try the 10-minute experiment that Wil Wheaton tried awhile back and see what happens.
