I thrive on schedule and structure. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been easy to get a set schedule when taking class at two different institutions, subbing when able, and fitting in field work for my education classes. I am looking forward to a traditional school schedule. The thing is, as much as I love schedule and structure, I like variety too. That is where my business life comes in. During the summer, my life is completely different, and I spend most of my days working in the family business, Russell Canoe Livery. I love having a completely different set of responsibilities for part of the year.
Unfortunately, this semester is off to a strange start. Even with my intention of finally creating a good schedule (which includes blogging and writing in general) and a more sane class schedule, it just hasn’t worked well over the last couple of weeks. Maybe I can put those weeks behind me and actually get somewhere. There are so many things I that need to get done.
Lately I’ve been thinking about what I want my life to look like. I am working on balancing a teaching career with running a family business and still find time to keep writing. The thing is: I know I can do it. I’ve only been training for all of it for most of my life. That is what so frustrating at the moment. I can’t move on just yet. My brother and I haven’t purchased the business yet. I still have a semester of classes left, student teaching, and a battery of tests to take. Once I’m done with all of that, I still need to land a teaching position. Hopefully these tips and suggestions outlined in the article above will help me find the time to write.
