thesis break

Just back from washing my mouse ball. Yup, it was sticky. I am now offically taking a ten-minute break from my thesis, even though Bella is gone for the rest of the day and night and I should be treating every moment alone as golden thesis time… I need my breaks. In fact, while working on my thesis, I keep an scrap piece of paper on hand (a once-used envelope actually) and write down all the things I WISH I were doing instead of working on my thesis.

My summer thesis schedule:

Wake up at 5 am. Go for a run.

Start working by 6 am, in order to get three hours in before she wakes up.

Get three more hours in during the course of the day, and unpack my new house during my breaks.

For some reason, it seems to be taking me until 8 or 9 at night to get the six hours in… sigh. Actually I only started yesterday, and I did get in five hours. Not bad for a first day’s work. I’m at three hours right now and it’s 5:30 pm. Still, I should get a full day’s work in.

I also got several full days in last week (okay, just two – but very productive days). One day was sitting in a side cubicle at my boyfriend’s library all day while he worked. That was pretty good. I spent another day at University of California, Irvine’s library. That is a great library – makes me want to go to school there, even though my sister says that going for a doctorate wouldn’t be such a good idea for a procrastinator like me.
Whoops out of time. Time goes SO DAMN FAST when you’re procrastinating!
