Oh, it feels good to be back in this space. I’m nowhere near ready to be back here as regularly as I had been, but I’ve been squirreling away from links the past three weeks as I’ve been able to get over to feedly (since the sad passing of Google Reader). I wanted to share some of those great reads with you.
I also wanted to do a quick check-in, that I’m still here, still kicking. I’m still working on my #sschallenge goals, though not keeping strict track of points. It feels better this way.
There was also the part where I was going to say I’m not sure what it is about this time of the year that I feel restless, a bit on edge. And then, I realize that the end of July has been the time a lot of changes have occurred in my life. So, I guess it shouldn’t be so surprising. I’m allowing it, right now. Doesn’t make for pretty shiny things, but it’s all a practice, right?
Now, on to the reads! (And after revisiting them doing this post… there’s definitely a theme here…)
Home Retreat: The Practice of Doing Exactly What You Want from Susan Piver
Turning one’s own space into rereat space. I love it! (Plus, some helpful pointers.)
The Awesomest 7-Year Post-Doc or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Tenure-Track Faculty Life from Scientific American
This was making the rounds of my Facebook feed, so I read it. And I’m so glad I did. It’s all about perspective and expectation, when you get right down to it.
