I have a meeting with my advisor tomorrow regarding my dissertation. We met when I got back from the US after my mom died. That was about 2 months ago. In that time, I had 2 other papers to write, and I took a holiday. I have done some research on my dissertation. In fact I spent 2 days at the library looking up books and journal articles. (Not that I have actually *read* them.)
I honestly have no idea what I am doing. I found a template online to assist me in writing, but I am not really sure what I am supposed to be writing. I mean do I just go all in and do this- or is there some sort of formulaic way- like the way a Law and Order episode is drawn out? I hope my advisor isn’t pissed that I have no idea what I am doing- I just felt really foolish asking at this point in the academic year. (I’ve never had to write such a paper for my previous degrees so……)
So I am stressed and not feeling 100% and didn’t work out again today and this isn’t good since I had been doing so well. I am going to the gym right after my meeting with my advisor in the morning to get it out of the way.
I also need to go to the public library and pick up a book. I found a book group that meets in a coffee shop I love, and I really need to do something that isn’t my dissertation this summer.
Oh! And the one thing I did actually get done today (besides watching Timelash) was to book my mini trip to London to see INXS in June. I am taking the overnight bus (cheap) and staying one night in London, and then busing back the night of the show. It sucks and I will be tired but it is the cheapest option. (I’d rather have the money for when we go see MAAN later in June!!!!)
Sorry if this is a totally random post- I’m not focusing at the moment.
Oh, and if you are reading this, please take a moment to say “hi” in the comments. I <3 comments.
Ok I am really going to sign off this post and get work done. Really.
