Life Update: Mid September

Hello all,

Good news! A new post will be going live in the next couple of days and then I will be back on a more regular bi-weekly schedule. It was supposed to come last week, but then my students got me miserably sick, so I was simply fighting the battle of staying on top of schoolwork and getting enough sleep while my brain refused to work.

The upcoming post is a brief detour from the health and technology series I started, but I think it is pertinent and timely. So be on the lookout for that.

In regards to life, Josh and I are almost entirely unpacked and settled in to our new place in Boulder. Last week, we got all our artwork on the walls, so the apartment is really starting to feel more like home. It’s a surreal experience watching the sentimental and aesthetic items that decorate one space realign themselves in order to decorate a new space. A sort of reincarnation of home. Same but different.

Classes are fantastic, and my cohort is amazing. I am grateful with how quickly we have bonded. I am also thoroughly enjoying teaching. I get to spend four hours every week having awesome conversations about Conversation with my students (super meta I know but that legitimately is the title of the class), and those hours are always a blast. That being said, though I’m no longer working the equivalent of two full time jobs, I am still very busy. I’m trying to figure out work/life balance where there is no longer a clear distinction between categories in my life. Social blends into class-time blends into teaching blends into homework blends into my normal leisurely media consumption practices. With each week though, it gets a little better.

All in all, things are fantastic. Glad to be in Boulder and not missing Southern California weather one iota. Thanks to those of you who have already visited, and I hope that more of you come out to visit us in the next few years. I’d love to give you a tour of our exquisite campus and take you on a drive through the Rockies. It truly is an inspiring place to live.
