So, am I the only teacher who suffers from some peculiar kind of dissonance in keeping all the parts of my life separate? I can't imagine so.
I was thinking about this as I decided that I needed an online way to keep track of my novel outline - something visual that I have have open and refer to as I write. Of course, I'm writing my novel for NaNoWriMo
, because even novel writing is best done through social networking. So this aspect of my online life, and real life, is one that I'm willing to have spill over into my teaching life - but some aspects of my online life I don't want connected with either my real life or teaching life. Confused? Me too.
I don't think there is an easy way round this one. I have pseudonyms and things, so I don't think that's a problem - it's mostly keeping it all straight in my head, like a bunch of venn diagrams
. You can know about this
, but not about that
, so you can only know about this
persona and not that
Hmm. /rambling. Going to write now.
