I moved, and I'm now living in Ontario, just outside of Toronto.
Over the last few months, you may have noticed a general lack of attentiveness. I have good reason! Since early December, I've been actively searching for a job, so actively, in fact, that for about 3 months, I was applying for 10+ jobs a day, spending hours searching and perfecting my applications. When I finally got the job I have now, I was working full time with the kids I had for two weeks straight, trying to pack up all my things, and trying to pack up what I was going to bring. All of this on top of attempting to maintain my regular load of volunteer work (which usually fits best in a part time schedule, not a full time schedule).
Right now, I've got two kids (school age) full time. This week, I have almost no breaks because of Spring Break. Next week they're back at school, but I have to get myself situated here and figure out transit and everything else.
Honestly, I don't know when I'll be back on track. I'm hoping soon. I'm also hoping to be able to offload some of the responsibilities I've built up for myself on this site onto other people, multiple people.
: Post one last (yes last) Dictionary Entry, then pass the reins off to my helpers who will take turns to post. Also, recruit more helpers.#IamAnthro
: Clear up any existing issues that lie in the backroom and with members. Adjust responsibilities to allow for less need of a "single overseer" and allow the room to run semi-autonomously. (This requires discussion with multiple people who are rarely online and often busy and will take extensive time, but I do hope for it to happen, there is no need for the single overseer constantly.)
CV: Get back in there! (By "there" I mean #devart
I don't want to abandon anything, but I also don't want to overload myself. Right now, when I get the kids off to bed, I'm ready for bed myself, and it's not even 10pm yet. Things need to change and I need to be less stressed.
Anyway, just thought I'd update you guys!
How have you been?
