To me, work is like long-distance running: you set your sites on reaching the next landmark, while keeping the final destination in mind. Every goal-oriented project has steps. “A” leads to “B,” which leads to “C.”
I decided to “buckle down” and work on my proposal. I have been working on it, but not very regularly. I need to finish in order to continue with my thesis and graduate. I also have midterms coming soon, and I only read some of the material for one of my two classes–mostly because I am either working on my proposal, working on other projects for classes, teaching, or partying. (Yes, I admit to having a good time.) So far, things seem to be going well. I am also working out regularly again. The cold and wet weather put a damper on my desire to go outside. I didn’t even want to travel to the gym to work out. (I had some personal issues to resolve. Taking care of those seems to have helped, too.)
I plan to continue working today until my proposal is ready to be printed again, hopefully for its last revision.
Another busy day. Today, I have to write a case study for law class, and I have a rehearsal this afternoon. I hope everything goes well!
Don’t you hate it when you suffer from vacation brain? It’s the second day back from Mardi Gras break, and I still feel lost.
I think I am screwed. I have a paper and powerpoint presentation due in two hours, and I barely started both. I had an odd and unproductive–for school projects–Mardi Gras break. Anyway, back to work. Time to see how much magic I can muster.
“We’ve already established what you are, madam. Now we’re just haggling over the price.”
I read several professors’ emails and rubrics throughout the year, and they always include grammar mistakes. Some, like the one I am reading now, aren’t even complete thoughts, much less complete sentences. Anyway, it’s another fun fact about higher education.
Really, really want to go shopping this morning. I’m going to practice for rehearsal this afternoon. I probably won’t have enough time to go shopping today, but I
…I went shopping online…
I still have some things I want to find in the store, but now I may have some new walk-around tennis shoes before my current pair falls apart. The soles are worn and coming off of the shoes a little, and I wear them everywhere. I hope I like them.
