Mind Dump 5: Back to Studying & Kid Sleep Issues

It’s been a while.

I was swept into the tide of following the anti-white supremacist movement on twitter. I’ve made a fool of myself in the process; not from ill will, but just from general ignorance. I think I desire to be cooler than I actually am, and now I’m just looking like a big idiot. Oh well. Gotta learn somehow.

I’ve finally got the chance to get back into the swing of studying. I’m at a starbucks right now with the intention to dedicating some time reading my textbook. I know I need to do better – dedicate more time, and be willing to get off social media (so hard right now) to devote time to what it is I want to do: become a linguist.

But I’m also feeling very humanist – I want to be a change. I don’t know how to do that, and I’m slowly learning how. I want to be able to both study and be a positive influence at the same time, but I am a terrible time manager and I can barely get myself to do the dishes and cook dinner all in the same day. Stupid, eh? Also not very promising once I get back into academia.

The girls continue to be difficult when it comes to bedtime. K just refuses to go to sleep at a reasonable time, and I think no amount of sleep training will help with that. We’re going to need to adjust how we deal with her and our expectations of her.

Life, for me, is pretty hard right now. There’s a lot more I want to say about it, but for the sake of my family, I will keep my mouth shut. I’m just not all that happy with our circumstances, and I’m not sure what to do about it.

Guess I better get started on this studying thing, since that’s what I’m here to do.
