Whew! By now you have learned just how busy the Middlebury experience can be. (See the cartoon in this week’s Campus for a clear illustration of this!) In this journal entry, do two things. First, list and reflect on what you are doing well. Find examples of moments in the last three weeks where you have made good decisions regarding time management. Then move on: how do you need to do better? Be explicit … and honest … with yourself about the specific ways you can improve.
We will begin with some of your entrees tomorrow. And as ever, I urge you to take a walk – a kind of creativity-inducing, body-relaxing, mind-expanding walk! – as you begin this assignment. Better yet, find a colleague to walk with!
