After work today, I will be on spring break! (Yay, one of the few perks of teaching college is having a spring break, but I still have a lot of grading to do.)

I have such a huge amount of anxiety when it comes to break periods, being afraid that I’ll waste my precious free time on things like sleeping and relaxing, ugh. ;P It is important to me to be productive, and I don’t get to do much creatively during the semester, because there just isn’t much time for creative projects. :(

So this Spring Break, I think I’m going to work on making some Láadan content for YouTube and queuing it up for the next few weeks.

Ideas:

  • Translate quotes about women, or by women
  • Read the WisCon talk and talk about inspirations of Láadan; brief history.
  • Make a storybook video of some Aesop stories in Láadan
  • Record the tune and (try to) sing “Birthsong”. (I’m REALLY insecure about my singing voice.)
  • Talk about Suzette’s abandoned languages
  • How to… (grammar help?) videos
  • Láadan songs (I bought myself a Ukulele with the intent of learning to write songs with conlang lyrics.)

If you have any other ideas, let me know!

My Láadan videos are currently available here:

 

One thought on “Láadan Spring Break

  • I hope you’ll take time to relax as well! Self-care is paramount! Not only because it enables you to be productive, but because you deserve the same compassion you give to others.
