Phase One - Cleaning

In order to get my life straight, I began the day with a much needed dose of cleaning at my desk. I threw out piles of crap which I had accumulated over the passed six months, and organised my unfiled journals into three piles - enterned into my bibliography program (Endnote), not entered into Endnote (and that I still have to read), and abstracts I need to actually get the journals for. Now all I need to do is read about 20 journal articles, and find about 50. I keep telling myself that I have to start somewhere, and no matter where I approach from it will still seem daunting. Just do the fucking work, Becka, I say to myself. Just do the fucking work.

That was the only way I got through Honours, I realise now. I had an end point that I was working towards, a deadline that was tangible. I had to do the fucking work, or it just wouldn't be done on time. So I suspect for the next three years I'll have to take the attitude I had in hounours, and just do the fucking work (TM).

And as all of you who were around me during Honours know, I will not be a pleasant person in the next three years because of it. Pity Jye, for he will have to put up with it. Unless he breaks up with me, of course.

It's hard work. I wonder if I really make the cut here. Hell, I've been wondering that since I started Honours. I probably don't. Maybe I should start up a betting competition for people to gamble on how much longer I'll last.

In unrelated news, plush Cthulhu has moved into the office with me, because sometimes I need to destroy my enemies.
