Status Update

Hi everyone,

It seems like I'm never meeting any sort of deadline when it comes to the creative parts of my life. It's unfortunate, but my day jobs have to take priority.

There's a chance, and I'm hesitant to believe in it because I've been burned so frequently before, that this next semester will be the first semester where I will be paid a living wage for an amount of work hours that is sustainable AND have job security. I've never had two of the three, let alone all three.

If that ends up being the case, there will be a lot of updates and changes 'round here.

If it isn't the case, then well, I'll still be working somewhere in the realm of 80 hours a week for barely over minimum wage—because that's how much we value college instructors in America—and this aspect of my life will continue to atrophy.

Here's hoping.

One thing I am planning on doing though is to have more "mini-blog updates" and treat this as an extended Twitter for those thoughts and rants that I have that I used to deem too short to share on here but are too long to share on Twitter.

That way at least, it won't be dozens of days between updates.

I will mention that in the last year I've gotten about ten times better at teaching and explaining mathematics from my curriculum developer job so whenever I have the time to continue Zero's Mathematics the quality will be significantly improved.

Thank you for reading,
