It’s been school holidays, then several weeks where it was either a public holiday that week, or a pupil free day, and my brain is confused. I appear to be lacking the basic motivation to work on my thesis at all, despite my most excellent reading plans. I have ground to a halt!
I’m not really sure what it is, exactly. I’m not really behind, I have a good plan, everything is set up and organised, I love my topic and find it all super interesting. But opening files and writing, or getting out articles to read and make notes is just not appealing.
Instead, I am organising ALL THE THINGS in the rest of my life, which is fine I suppose but not conducive to being called Dr one day. I have a bunch of admin for my oldest girl at the moment, and we also got a new giant turtle tank, which had a knock on effect of meaning we now have a new pet lizard, and all our fish tanks are getting makeovers because reasons. So I find myself buying silkworm eggs and replacement impellers instead of being a good academic. This too shall pass…right!?!
Must stick to reading goal this week, at least then I’ve got something nice a ticked off a list to point to. Happy trails, all!!
