As I get ready to fly off for the SLP conference (Kiwanis) this week, I realize that yet again I struggle to find the right combination of being busy (but not too busy) and productive.
This week(end) has been no exception. Following a week that featured the first days of class for all three of my classes (two in person and one online class), beginning to train a new (and awesome) staff member for the Health and Safety committee, and other more mundane tasks, I also managed to fit in some fun like the Girl Geek dinner (which was awesome!), board games, a tweet up, snowshoeing, and more!
Suffice to say the semester is ramping up with craziness, busy-ness, and more. And I'm trying my best to stay on top of things. But I'm an imperfect creature and sometimes I just want some downtime to sit in front of my computer and type away, write, read, play games or otherwise enjoy life away from all the obligations that surround me.
And sometimes I just need to do a better job balancing this need with all my other responsibilities, whether formal or implied!
