ell, that time of the year is here again. The first session is over and my students will take there final later today. You know what that means: Grading! But I have a small class so I will not be gone long.
Procrastinator with a capital “P”
I am–once again–in crunch-time mode regarding a paper I need to submit to an editor. Why, oh why, do I do this to myself? I wrote a comment on someone else’s site once about procrastination and I think it applies to me perfectly: I am not focused on my future goals. If I sat down and thought about them as I should–and took them seriously–I would do what I need to do now, NOW. I think I lack discipline. I used to have tons of it–how else can you get a Ph.D.? Have I perhaps used up my lifetime quota? Ugh…
Anyway, with that in mind, I will focus on work for the next few days. If I end up getting buried with work, an unable to be on Xanga–as unlikely as THAT sounds–I’d like to tell everyone: Crank up your BBQs and have a great 4th of July Weekend!
And maybe I’ll work on the senryu before whonose kills me.
