It is entirely possible that I am getting really nervous about the coming school year and feel the need to plan a whole ton. Like a lot. I need to get my prescription refilled. I am scattered and stressed. Stressed and scattered. Today I felt like my brain fell out and I couldn't think of anything. It felt like Friday afternoon, but it was Monday morning.
We talked about the importance of having a "Growth Mindset," in which you don't see your knowledge and skills as fixed, but as things that are plastic and dynamic.
I explained to my supervisor that the growth mindset does not come naturally to me. There are times that I acknowledge my general awesomeness (as a state of being) and other times that I acknowledge my complete worthlessness. This growth thing-- that I see, value and encourage in others-- is not something that I readily think about in a positive fashion.
Learning Norwegian is a way that I am going to have a growth mindset.
Oh blarg I wrote a whole bunch of other stuff but just didn't save or post or whatever and now its gone.
Anyway, growth good, fixed bad.
Not in the mood to write at the moment.
Need to fill my meds tomorrow
