Things I’m Loving Friday, Volume 12

I enjoy reflecting on what in my professional and personal life has made me happy recently.

  • Saturday writing friend dates: I am in the middle of data analysis and writing my final two chapters for my doctoral dissertation. One of my friends is writing her first book (which I can’t wait to read!). We make friend dates to meet up on Saturdays for writing motivation and support. We spent one day in the Central Library downtown – I love that space!- and another few Saturdays in a coffee shop. I love knowing that I’m not alone in my writing world. We find the right balance of quiet work and randomly interrupting each other throughout our writing sessions.
  •  Professional Development & Coaching: Facilitating professional development and coaching conversations are two of my favorite responsibilities. Over the last two weeks, I’ve had a number of opportunities to do both and each experience made me so happy. I am constantly reminded of what I love about my work and how much I enjoy working with adult learners in these situations.

What are you loving lately?  

What supports you in your leading and learning?

    I am just starting on my doctoral journey and I love the idea of your Saturday writing dates.
    I too, am responsible for professional development and it’s one of my favorite things about my job. I love seeing a teacher gets excited about new possibilities for his/her students. One of the reasons I am working for a doctorate, to have more opportunities with teaching the teachers! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  2. A writing date! That’s brilliant. I often want to work alone but getting together with the right person could be very productive. Thanks for the idea.
