Someday I will correctly type “Cyprus” correctly on my first attempt, but today is, once again, still one of those days where I begin with “Cyrpus” and have to go back.
I was feeling stressed and exhausted at the prospect of the semester starting on Wednesday so I took a nap.
Now I’m feeling slightly less stressed and tired. And I’ve figured out some of the words that I need to use in this paper
My mother has progressed to yelling at the squirrels.
In a somewhat unexpected turn of events, I’m starting off today by watching an epigraphy panel.
I have managed to send one (1) email.
Today, that is enough.
Hanging out with the dog, drinking coffee, enjoying the fog, and watching a paper on Umbria.
Today is going pretty well so far.
Rainy day 🌧
It’s very fitting that this, the last day of this accursed year, started with a small earthquake.
Today is my first day (after full vacation mode) slowly inching back into academic writing mode – I have a draft due by the end of the week. So far it’s going well: I’m skimming two mostly unrelated papers that will probably get footnoted and checking over the AIA/SCS schedule.
Because I’m 100% that person, I’m excited because today I’m going to sit down, catch up on some saved links, and alternate between drafting a couple abstracts and working on a paper.
And with that I am done with applications!
All right, time to finish applying to PhD programs.
It’s a couple hours later than I’d have liked to be, but I just locked in a final version of my writing sample for applications!
Waking up slowly to the low thrum of fog horns.
Drinking coffee with a view of the San Francisco Bay.
It’s just after 5:30, I woke up from a nap about an hour ago, and I still feel like I could fall asleep again and wake up comfortably tomorrow morning.
Made a breakthrough on application materials but simultaneously realized just how tired I am, so I took a couple minutes and wrote some notes for myself so I can pick up again tomorrow morning.
And with that paper finalized and submitted, I am done with my own coursework for the semester!
One way or another, by the end of the day today I will be done with this semester’s classes.
I woke up knowing it was Saturday, but my brain just momentarily convinced me that it was, in fact, Wednesday so I panicked for a minute about missing a meeting before realizing that is, once again, the weekend.
Daydreaming about all of the fun reading I’m going to finally have time for once I finish the semester and submit all of my applications.
