Bringing Order to Chaos, 2021

Beyond the obvious reasons, this year is a interesting one for me as it’s pretty much the first time since early high school that I am not in classes for credit/grades most of the year. Offically done with the coursework required for my degree - with only research and writing left, I’m interested to see how this list changes. Already there’s far less demand on scheduling and I’ve been able to be a lot more relaxed using my calendar. Still stand by time-blocking type methods and I group my tasks by topic and type of work, but find myself a lot less tethered to a tight schedule in order to function efficently like I have been for the last deacade or so. Odd but kind of nice? We’ll see how long it lasts.
