I’m looking at master’s students’ course plans. I have two master’s students right now.
They are lovely course plans and I’m looking forward to working with these particular students.
Both students asked about changes of direction in some part of their initial plans. It was nice to let them know that the school and their individual departments are open to those kinds of changes.
So I began to think about my own recent course corrections.
I’m actively downsizing.
I don’t seem to be able to do it quickly enough. I’m impatient about it and being too hard on myself. I suppose I need someone to tell me that these kinds of changes are okay and all happen when the time is right. Or something.
Mostly I hope my course corrections will work themselves into a decently functional life plan.
