trying to use social media less as a distraction when im supposed to be productive and more as a place to help stay accountable. i go thru phases of being better at this… i am also working on getting back to being consistent with writing generally…. it helps to have a sexy old school type writer like mine…breaks the monotony of keyboards or pen to paper…. I have done a few key next actions so far for the morning. Now I am going to grab a little snack…whip out the typewriter and reflect on the past few days.
Lately I have been feeling like I just want to be working with my hands….creatively, in collaboration with others, in community development efforts….that is not however, what my time is really being taken up with…it is all about this academia right now. Luckily I am working with a topic and methods that I am excited about and that connect me directly with the communities I want to work with.
But since the program I am in is less than engaging…I am just seeing this thesis as writing my own ticket. This is my pass back to being able to use my time in the ways that I want. To use my time to help incubate the powerful, creative energies in Grenada and the broader region towards efforts of empowerment, self-sustainability and laughter. Check out www.3rdward.com and www.urbanartbeat.org for models that reflect some of what I want to set up in Grenada.
…ok time to stop procrastinating and wishing I didn’t just have to sit here and grind out this research proposal…back to work.
