Trying to find a good way to structure these reflection posts.  (maybe just a list)

This week went by fast, so here are the highlights (and lowlights)

  • (monday) saw Sofe’s cousin’s comedy show.  Had a pretty good time, ate a lot of other people’s food, while wearing a sweater that upset Sofe’s mother (it was v v ugly).  Overall I would’ve enjoyed the show more if I was a middle-aged straight woman(I was clearly not the target audience).

 

  • (tuesday) walked over 40 blocks (mostly streets not avenues)

 

  • (wednesday) I’m beginning to realize wednesday is a crafting day.  I have a ceramics and my knitting group.

 

  • At the tail end of my knitting group Sara and I went down to see if we could watch Shia Labeouf marathon his movies.  Unfortunately there was a multiple block line and we didnt stay.  That night I had a very realistic dream that Shia took me aside and gave me very wise advice, but of course now I can’t remember what he said!

 

  • (thursday) I’m not sure when, but sometime in the future I will post a bird video and the photo of me in the bird mask will make sense.

  • also on thursday Sofe and I went to new jersey to investigate Arthur’s mysterious disappearance. His mom Linda explained everything and it was very bittersweet.

  1. Yes! help me make sense of that amazing mask!
    Burning question: Did you make it?

    Re: how to structure your reflection blog posts. I’ve been trying out a few things with my weekly reflections and structuring them has been central to that.

    I wanted my weekly posts to have a format so that when seen one after the other (which I imagine may happen when i want to have an overview of my year etc) there is some continuity.

    My suggestions to you:
    1. *Create a category*. Right now you are leaving all of your posts as uncategorized by default. Differentiate the weekly reflection from other, more free form posts.
    2. *Create a (simple) TITLE format*. The less thinking required here, the better. Trying to think of a funny, witty title every week for a post who’s primary purpose is journaling/archiving is counter-productive. This could just be my preference, but I like to keep the catchy titles for stories/posts that I really WANT other people to read.
    3. *Decide on content /framing/ in advance*. You mentioned a list, and then you filled in a bullet point for each day of the week. You intuitively set up a /frame/ to brain-dump the content. You could implement new ways of framing things and see what else works. The goal here is to prevent you from stopping and thinking too much. Think pieces get the catchy titles and respond to your passions and interests. Weekly reflections are simpler and serve different purposes.

    On this last point, I’m currently using my Trello board to SEE what I did during the week, posting a picture of that, and then listing three categories of reflections:
    ‘Clearing’ – things i was unhappy with, but want to release
    ‘Gratitudes’ – to focus on the great things in life. Grateful for our blogs, and the people who made them possible like @drew
    ‘Achievements’ – Yay! cool things that happened

    Hope you find this helpful (not lecture-y), also it has inspired me to write a thinky-piece on the topic!
