Starting a new system today: Mondays are officially “Blogging, work-from-home, grant-writing days.” Let’s see how it works.
So far, I can’t complain about my productivity. I submitted my article (finally!) and got another chunk of sound transcribed. This week, I would like to really dive into the transcription thing, and I’m hoping to have at least one interview done, hopefully two, by Friday. In the meantime, my colleague and I are working on an Op-Ed together which we will probably send along to our university’s press people today. It’s exciting and fun, even if it doesn’t “count” for tenure. Of course, that means I don’t have a lot of time to spend on it.
Today is further complicated by the fact that I am reading and commenting on a student’s thesis chapters, which is a time consuming endeavor. So, I will this post brief. At least I have blogged for the week, which I wanted to do, and I have closed my facebook window.
BTW, yes, not going on social media does help my productivity.
My goals this week:
- Write Spanish version of my IRB proposal for the summer’s field work.
- Write themes for the ten sessions we’re designing.
- Finish grant application for Endangered Languages Fund.
- Transcribe 1.5 interviews
- Begin Grant application.
Wish me luck…
