Upon return from my vacation in Vancouver, I was thrust into the frenzy of taking a course (THE500H) and team teaching a course (CTL7011H). So, it was nice to go off on a canoe camping trip in Algonquin for a few days last week.

I’m online most of the time, since much of my thesis research is online. So, getting away like this gives me the distance I need to reflect on my work analyzing discourse, and to think about how I can balance coursework and teaching with research. To get me back on track with my thesis work after my vacation and a busy September, I’ve decide to write daily for at least 15 to 30 minutes. In the past, I’ve tended to put off writing until I’ve researched everything exhaustively, and then set aside big blocks of time for writing. Unfortunately, I don’t have big blocks of time nowadays, and so I think I’ll have to start writing from the beginning of my projects. Clare suggested I blog these thoughts, so I will try to share them with you.

  1. I love Algonquin in the fall. No bugs, nice weather, fewer people and apparently lots of mud!
