My So-Called Academic Life and Bat Fit: Can You Possibly “Find Time?”

  A new semester brings with it syllabus writing, course planning, lecture organization, departmental and committee meetings, and complete chaos. Within the last week, my schedule went from relatively manageable to filled-to-the-brim, forcing me to contemplate how in the world I'm going to "pencil in" my own research and writing.

Ah exercise, the "dirty word" of New Year's "resolutions" and goals.
