Get to Work!

Today marks exactly 2 months before my AERA paper is due. Despite my best intentions to be done with this thing early, I suspect that I am going to be down to the wire with my writing. I am currently reading through the notes that Dr. Mitchell gave me on my first draft. This is, by the way, no simple task. There are lots and lots and lots of notes. And, Dr. Mitchell, scientist that he is, is VERY thorough. I know that this will help me in the long run, but I'm kind-of overwhelmed right now. I keep looking at these pages and pages and pages and wonder if I'll ever be done with this thing. And I really need to be done. As much as I love school, I really need to move on with my life. I need to find a stable job, stop worrying about money, buy a house, and move on. I can hear it now: "You can't keep waiting for your life to start." And that's not what I'm talking about. It's not about waiting for something to happen. It's about not slogging around in the same place for too long. And I think if I don't finish this thing this year, that's what I'll be...slogging.

And yet, I procrastinate. Even writing here is a form of procrastination, although I am also investigating inflation rate calculators even as I write this. So I guess I ought to go figure them out some more. See you whenever.
