I’ve been thinking about all the things I’m doing with my website and how to balance that with the upcoming responsibility of graduate school.
Last year I was employed while my wife went to graduate school for her elementary school teaching credential.
At the beginning of September we’ll switch and I’ll be going to graduate school for molecular biology while my wife teaches 5th grade at the neighborhood public school.
While I’m not stressed now with work, my day-to-day responsibilities, and all the other things I do for fun, that might change.
I saw what my wife went through for her graduate program. Her typical weekday was waking up at 6, leaving at 7:30, and not being done with her classes or her homework until 8PM.
If I have to do the same thing… I might not have time to do blog posts every day, stream every week, or improve the website and attached video channels as often.
Updates won’t stop, but I expect they will reduce in frequency.
I don’t want to make a commitment I can’t keep. I’ve already slipped a little bit on doing updates every weekday.
I usually miss a post because I’ve had a long day and don’t have the mental energy to write something worth reading.
Typically I make up a missed post on the weekend, but I’m still behind by two posts.
I’ll try to make those both up by September, but after that I think I’ll be switching to weekly updates.
I hope my schedule will allow me to write posts more often, but I can’t guarantee that until I’ve started my classes and know for sure what my workload will be.
