tl;dr March 2015

callherhappytldr

I stopped checking my editorial calendar as much as I used to, and things that only happen once a month are harder to remember, so I missed this month’s tl;dr post. I ought to add it to my to-do list. Other than that, here’s the short version of what I’ve been up to.

  • I finished 7 posts in 7 days with my friend Christina from Waltzing in Beauty.
  • I saved up enough money to get a month ahead on all my bills. (In YNAB-speak, I got Buffered.)
  • I came down with a killer cold and have a lingering cough from it. I hope it’s not bronchitis and won’t become pneumonia.
  • I’m taking a Bible study from Word on Fire (with Fr. Robert Barron) about Jesus as priest, prophet, and king.
  • My post about joining the Apostleship of Prayer went viral.
  • I got some lovely messages from friends for National Grammar Day.
  • I went on the Pure Fashion retreat. This may or may not have led to the aforementioned cold.

This month, I learned that I am more capable with my finances that I ever thought, that I am getting to old to run on low sleep, and that the Internet is an amazing place.

What have you been up to? Any big news, dear readers?

Well, my dissertation is finally up and running. We did a classroom intervention to test out the problem set I designed in order to get pre-service teachers excited about open problems in mathematics, and it was a huge success. For them, discovering that mathematics is a creative field that advances through human innovation like any other natural science was a game-changer.

Not to be a scold, but…

It’s true most people in your age range feel less of a propensity to sleep than they did 10 years ago, but that doesn’t mean they should run on low sleep. Not if they want to live life to its fullest. The amplitude of sleepiness and wakefulness decline past age 25 (and decline even more as you get older), which means it’s more incumbent on you to intentionally get that sleep and not rely on your body to tell you it needs sleep.

(I know more about sleep than anyone you know.)

Yes, the internet is an amazing place, especially when you wake up in the middle of the night and search out your nearest screen.

    Ugh, I know. (That’s my expression of frustration at myself, not at you.) I know I need to be intentional about sleep and just do it, but I find that hard to balance with all the things I need and want to do. I will also note that I have a strict no phone while in bed and no laptop in my bedroom policy. That helps me fall asleep and stay asleep well. It’s getting in on time that’s the problem. :/
