Work, School and Blogging

Today was one of those hectic days where I had no opportunity to break up my work day with personal e-mails or phone calls, let alone blogging, as I had back-to-back meetings most of the day. Then this evening I had a class to attend.

I've been taking continuing education courses in historic preservation at Drew University over the past seven years. I received my Certificate in Historic Preservation back in May of 2004 but continue to take additional courses if they offer new ones that interest me. My main purpose in taking these courses is to use the information to help me in preserving historic buildings in my area. However, I sometimes daydream about getting involved in this field full time when I stop working for the Big Corporation.

This particular course was in grant writing, which could come in very handy for a certain project I've been working on. Tonight was the last class, but my project, which is to actually prepare a grant application, isn't due until the 17th. Being a polychrone, I have procrastinated grievously and have not yet actually started working on the project. I hope to get most of it done this weekend.

That said, it is now 11:30 and time is running out to post on November 8th. So I will leave you with another pitiful haiku:

Too many meetings
No time for NaBloPoMo
November is long.

I hear ya, mauigirl. I'm going to be spending most of my weekend with work that was neglected last week.

Do you think you can get a grant to restore our Constitution? Just a thought....

Ok, you're blogging that you have no time to blog.

I would say something smart-alecky about that, but I don't have any time to leave blog comments right now......

Maybe you're just trying to put two pounds of Bush in a one pound barf bag. ;-)
