Tough to Get Going

After an exhausting 2 weeks (end of the first semester of my first year at this school + a 4-day trip with my former school to Washington, D.C.), I find myself back to where I usually am when it comes to blogging: stuck.

I find that while I have ideas floating around, I can never seem to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard).  This is a recurring theme of my life on the Internet: I start, and fade away.  Start, and fade away.  Start, and fade away.  I look at some amazing blogs out there, and I wonder: how do they do it?  How do they maintain a life as a teacher and yet still have the time and energy to share that with everyone else?  How do they have the organization necessary to do all that?

So. . .how is that done?


  1. I feel the same way. I find that when it comes to my wiki and blog and the assignments for this class, the only time that I have to work on things is on the weekends. I usually am at work between 5 and 6 am and I try to leave work by 6:00 PM. This along with my 45 minute commute gives me very little time for my family. It is so hard to juggle everything. So I would like to know the answer to the same question.

  2. I agree with both of you. I have been working like a beaver the past couple of years just trying to keep my head above water and maintain some degree of sanity. It always looks as though everyone else is just sailing along, but I have a feeling they are struggling too.

  3. Well, at least we're all floating along in the same boat. Or at least dog-paddling alongside the boat ;-)

  4. Great post. I wish I had the answer!
