I’m going to skip WIPpet Wednesday this week, for reasons I’ll get onto in a minute, but you should totally go and check out the linky and read lots of cool excerpts from people who are taking part this week.
I haven’t written anything since I checked in last week. I had things on from Monday – Thursday nights, and I spent Saturday with a friend. Other than that, I was just bloody exhausted. And this week I just haven’t bothered.
But what I wanted to talk about is the fact that as of next week, my time is going to disappear before my eyes and that’s going to be upsetting. I’m starting my Masters degree, which would be fine, but I’ve got rehearsals for My Fair Lady twice a week as well, and working out when to fit everything in is proving a bit of a challenge. I know that I will spend Saturdays at work (the National Library) because they have a lot of the text books and I can take them out on staff official loan (but that means I can’t take them out of the building). I think I will need to also spend probably two nights a week studying (given that I am supposed to allow 10 hours a week per course and I’m doing two courses). I can apply for study leave at work because the degree is relevant to my job, but that only gives me three hours a week.
This is going to mean that writing goals are unfortunately going to take a back seat, probably for this whole semester. I had figured that doing a show while studying wouldn’t be much of a problem, but those two nights a week feel like more than that when I actually start to account for my time. And makes me feel rather relieved that the play I was going to be doing after this has been postponed until next year because the
I do not have a solution for this yet. I imagine I’m going to be many tables and Gantt charts and things. I feel organised when I have those sorts of things. I need to un-enroll from one course and enroll in another so I’m not entirely sure what my workload will be, but as long as I get my act together, my student account should be updated by the weekend.
That’s it from me. You can visit other ROW80 check-ins at the linky here.
