Monday morning entry here. Missed the entire weekend, I guess with some excuse. I had to be up uber early both days and didn’t really get a chance to make an entry. Had a great weekend though. We placed well on Saturday and i was able to have some beers with Beazley. Sunday, the run was good and I could easily have made it back to the subway (I’ll know for next year) and got some breakfast with Scully.
The alcohol consumption is becoming an issue though. It’s fully the resistance taking hold. I think as I get tired, I’m less able to resist the urge. It’s not completely devastating, but I need to scale it back. I’m thinking that some simple rules are in order.
The important thing is to recognize the craving and try to live with it. Ignoring it or hiding from it is bad. Just like fear. live with it.
One thing I learned: I really liked the scientists humour during the show on Saturday. I’m thinking that doing some demonstrations for kids as a show would be really fun. Unrelated, but good is this idea that you can mess-up your hobby by doing it full time. Tim used the surfer analogy. Surfing on sundays is great, but teaching surfing full time is not fun.
One piece of motivation: Just make art. It may work, it may not. That’s not the point. Just do it.
Three ideas: A podcast. I’m going to try and do my own podcast. Just something simple about interviewing educators on the future of education or best practices.
