Coming into my own geekness

As tempting as it would be to complain yet again about how hot it is in Minneapolis these days, I won't. Someone pointed out to me recently that I should really change the name of the blog to reflect that it's hot outside (although winter is not far behind). However, my answer to that is that the title is meant as a metaphor, not a statement of fact.

Anyway, I haven't updated this blog much lately, and I wish I could say it was because I have been working so hard on the next stage of my dissertation process. Alas, that is not the case. In fact, I've hardly even thought about my dissertation the last couple weeks.

If I haven't been shuffling my child from Spanish class to his childcare center (yes, he's almost 4 and taking Spanish--he told us he wants to be bilingual, so we HAD to do something), I'm busy working this summer. It's fun work--check out the blog that is the ongoing result of my efforts. I've also been learning a few things about web design as part of the process. The web has been demystified, as John, my web tutor, tells me. And Shane has officially welcomed me into the world of geeks! I've arrived! I think I'm going to run out of excuses for not getting to my dissertation...

One never runs out of excuses to procrastinate on the diss. In a way, though, that is a perk: you've got a bit of freedom to decide when to work and when to play!

Love the new blog! Don't worry so much about the procrastination--the skills you are gaining as a result will serve you well once you finish and start the job search process.

There could be many types of procrastination but I think this one isn't that bad. You may have learned and accomplished something for procrastinating over your other task and that is good. But still, we must finish first what we have started before starting another one. Well, we can separate our time for both tasks if we want. It's just that procrastination is not that healthy. :)

One way to avoid procrastination is to not tolerate it. Because it becomes a habit. You may want to know the procrastination psychology so that you'll have a clearer picture of it.

When you procrastinate over something, you must be prepared for its outcome thought its not really pleasing. It is still best not to procrastinate. Just think of the free time you'll have after you finish your task. That would be more worth spending for.

Wow! Your child was impressive. As young as four years old already working on improving his communication skills. That was good for him. Communication skills must really be developed while they're young.

Having good communication skills will help them deal with people more easily and could increase their confidence as well. It was good that you supported his interest on being a bilingual.

I've to confess I was guilty from the same challenge once but observed out that checking my stats was a distraction from doing actual function progressing my blog so I cut again. I just use google analytics now. It's the top one in my view.

Within a routine search today, I found a url to your Squidoo page that includes your review of my ebook, Quick Money Secrets. I ceased publication of that ebook some time ago after banks stopped giving loans and its information was no longer of value. You should thus remove this review from your Squidoo lens. Please email me directly if you have got any questions. Many thanks, and Happy New Year!

bye default landing tabs. You'll also notice that the landing tabs have now disappeared. This is actually a change that some nonprofits do not like. But there is a new feature

I want to finish the quilting on my baby quilt. I possibly have a very third of it left to do, and it's hard...but maybe I'm able to do it!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

Another very strong and powerful publish. I have been reading by some of the previous posts and eventually decided to drop a comment on this a single. I signed up in your newsletter, so please keep up the informative posts!

Quick question ... I just finished a quilt and already blogged about it. If I did a new article during the week of your festival would I be able to enter it, or does this need to be a quilt that hasn't been shown yet?
