When at rest I tend to stay at rest, unless an outside force acts upon me. Unfortunately, when not at rest I tend to return to a state of rest, unless an outside force keeps me from doing so.
I’ve been looking for ways to counteract this so that I can get more studying done. Here’s my latest idea: I’ll announce a plan for studying, then post about it if I get behind schedule. Good? Since I’m currently trying to learn some Linguistics, I’ll plan this: I'll read 100 pages of Linguistics each week (let’s say, due at the end of each Sunday) until the end of spring semester. (Feel free to contact me with comments!)
Some rules for the game: I’m allowed to read ahead, to store up pages that I can use later. And I get to take three weeks off over winter break while I’m teaching my Intro Philosophy class, but that's the only break I get. Reading assigned in class counts, but weblogs don’t (unless they’re assigned, I guess). And . . . it starts now. Wish me luck!
