I was on a bit of a roll with actually blogging for like a week. And then school happened again. Specifically, I went from having just an online course (Business Ethics) in September and early October, with one weekend in late September for another course (Health Economics) to have all the classes in the universe at the same time. Specifically, in addition to my online course, which goes all term, I started not one, not two, but THREE new courses this week (Change Management, Healthcare Management, and Internet Marketing). Plus my group and I are still finishing up our paper from Health Economics, which is due Nov 41. I’m also working on my Industry Project, which is a 1.5 credit2 course; it is a project for work that I’m using all my shiny new MBA skills to make super awesome. So technically right now I’m juggling things for SIX different courses3, as well as working full-time and training for a half marathon and playing on two hockey teams. No wonder I feel like I’ve been run over by a truck.
So, yeah, I’m expecting that the blog postings around these parts might be a little bit of slim pickings for the next 6 weeks or so. Especially because my Internet Marketing class requires me to maintain a professional blog, so I’m going to be resurrecting my drbethsnow.com domain as a professional blog and my blogging efforts will mostly be directed there during this time4. So, if you are dying to read my brilliant writings – and really, who isn’t? – then you can check out that site, which I plan to do some work on this weekend.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to return to telling myself “one day at a time” and “short-term pain for long-term gain” because just writing out all the stuff I’m working on right now makes me feel like I’m going to have a heart attack.
- We had grand plans to finish that paper before all the rest of this stuff started, but it turns out that doing a cost-benefit analysis is really tricky, once you get into it. I think we have a pretty cool analysis, but man, does it take awhile to think through the process, gather the data, and crunch the numbers. Mmm, crunchy numbers. [↩]

- Currently working on the cost-benefit analysis paper for Health Economics, a paper and presentation on Appreciative Inquiry for Change Management, a presentation on obesity for Healthcare Management, setting up my blog and developing an outline for a client for Internet Marketing, a short paper for Business Ethics, plus my Industry Project.

- It’s something I’ve been meaning to do since I started using nottobetrustedwithknives.com for this blog – and so I’ve had a “this page is under construction” note over there for more than three years. [↩]
