I like to think I am reflective, but I am probably just reactionary. I say I am introverted but in words, I spill my secrets. I mostly engage with fiction, so non-fiction will be a challenge. I want to be the model student but my obligations and duties already weigh me down.
I am reminded of several useful cliches:
When you want something done, give it to a busy person
If you’re too busy to read, you’re too busy
Embrace the Chaos.
I am feeling much trepidation. I want to believe this course will inspire my teaching and my learning. But I am as flighty and overloaded as any digital native. I started my Masters of TL about 4 years ago, stopped and now I am back. I want to succeed. I want to learn. But most of all, I want to find joy in it.
I must slow down and give myself time.
