Check In – Folks Okay?

Hey all – just want to check in. Is everyone okay? The pace of the class is pretty fast between now and when we end. I want to make sure everyone feels on track with the assignments, etc. Comment, send me a message, IM me, etc. The world is still so unsettled and chaotic. If anyone is struggling, let me know.

I also want to do my own check in with you. I’ve been juggling INFO 200, recordings and some deadlines with research have made me feel behind. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need anything.

    To be completely honest, I don’t know how I’m managing this semester. Two of my classes just finished though, and I’m hoping to get my portfolio knocked out over the break, so there’s hope on the horizon! This class is a nice break when it comes to course readings, and while I do feel bad for being so behind on so many of the reflection posts, I’ve definitely been learning and internalizing a whole lot of material. Best of luck with all the grading and teaching and researching though; I follow/am mutuals with a lot of professors on Twitter and everyone seems to be really struggling right now so I hope you can make it through with as much of your sanity intact as possible!

    For me, a big stress point while doing the participatory service planning was me overthinking every little detail and the need of assurance from someone else to say my plan/thoughts are “right”. I think it just comes from inexperience and the worry that I’ll some how miss something really big/important that it’ll wreck my whole plan! I do my best to put that negativity aside and focus on learning and understanding it is okay to fail. It can just get tough at times. Thanks for checking in!

    I agree, very unsettling and chaotic. I feel like time is flying by, and I have been struggling to continue engaging with classmates on their blogs during the semester. I hope during this spring break, I can relax a bit and refocus on my classes. Thank you for sharing and checking in!
