I started calling my school job work-space the “fiery pit from Hell” in my mind. Really, “frozen wasteland of the hopeless” would be a more apt description. I keep trying to be positive, but stressful events, such as my supervisor not giving clear directions from the beginning, then offering some slightly off-kilter guidance after the fact, have already made this week much longer than the two days it has been in existence. Also, I keep putting off work for my thesis. I need to turn in the first draft of the literature review by October 16th, and I barely have half a page. I am sort of reading the material, but the lack of Internet in my work-space adds an extra hurdle, especially when I forget my flash drive.
I had planned a nice field trip for my class, but it looks like I have to cancel it. I thought I had it during an off week, but I apparently scheduled it during a time when they need to finish a project. I really want to do it, so I might reschedule for the next week. We’ll see. I’m trying to stay positive.
