I’m in the final stretch

11 May

and here’s what it looks like.

Lots of charts for this last paper.

(So what if I multitask?)

I’ll be done with college for good when I’m done with this one. And that may be why I’m prolonging the process (in part by writing this post!).

You know that feeling…

22 Jul

when you have something you urgently need to do, but you just stall and stall and stall? Not because the task itself is so hard, but because you’ve stalled a bit because of laziness—and after that first bit, you’re done. Fallen off the cliff of procrastination. Because from here, the edge, this thing to do looms so large overhead that it feels far more daunting than it should be. There is nothing wrong, or overly taxing about this task. But you’ve pushed it off and it suddenly seems impossible. Then you push it off some more. It still needs to be done. But. You just can’t get going. Sitting with a computer, you keep doing other things and avoid opening the document–at all costs. Because after a certain point, that discomfort of having pushed something off (perhaps that stems from the notion that, hey, why would I push something off if it were not bad to begin with?) seems like a failure in itself. So what’s the point?

Anyway. That’s where I am right now.

P.S.

I totally wasted the last 48 minutes.

C’est la vie, I guess.

P.P.S. 12:46 a.m. In the spirit of being productive, I have been reading this really interesting text for polisci. Clicky!

Oh, and I should add: really weird things going on outside tonight. A walk around campus landed me on Low steps, where a bunch of people had a fake-ish rave. They projected film onto a wall, had a tent, and danced to loud music. Then they started streaking. In capes.

Woah
