I realized that in the last two weeks I lost my happy somewhere... Not sure if it is just too much all at once but all the projects that did excite me Suddenly turned into a huge number of tasks that I don’t have enough time to do.
So I think this week I am going to barrel through as many of the tasks as humanly possible. Then dedicate next week to finding my happy.

by the end of the week, once I've figured everything out, we'll be making a more official announcement with plans for the fork. but right now I'm mostly in the research phase and would much prefer everyone telling me what they want, rather than me inferring from the mess of information that's out there

"I have a recipe for this thing!"
"Here's another thing you might like to learn, too!"

My oldest child was at the store and overhead some older folks talking about the meals that come in bags with recipes attached saying, "Oh those millenials, can't even cook for themselves."
And all she could think was, "Well yeah, becaue my mom never taught me to and actually *she's* the one ordering those meals in bags!"
I just submitted my final version of my dissertation lit review for this semester's class. It is so not complete, really still just the incomplete ramblings of a crazy woman.
But in my current life and work where everything is about achieving measurable goals and achieving (positive) tangible change, it feels strange to write about something that is conceptual, intangible and tremendously rewarding. #SmallStories
Re-reading things I've written about the fediverse and "a pedagogy of small" over the past two years...
"These system might be community-defined and be less inclined to seek out personalized, computer-supported learning solutions."
My kid met with a psychiatrist today. Some of the biggest worries were ruled out. The enormity of that good news is only starting to hit me now! #FeelingThankful!
Tend to be curious and often asking the questions “why” and “how,” which inadvertently stir up trouble sometimes.
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
