Whether I’ve been a student, an instructor, a parent with or without school-aged kids, or working full-time and not attending school in any capacity, I’ve always felt that September marks the start of a new year. New Year’s Day — in the deep freeze of an Alberta winter, doesn’t feel at all new. Cold — check. Dark — check. New? Not so much.
I’m more likely to make back-t0-school resolutions than New Year’s resolutions. For 2015 my resolution is to use this blog as a research journal where, weekly, I can record some of the articles and critical readings I do as an academic. I’m interested in how the process of blogging will deepen, change and shape that research experience for me.
Happy New Year!
