I have been putting off blogging for ages, and I can’t quite pin my finger on why. Partly, I think because I don’t feel I have much to say (but then I look at the last month or so and realise loads has happened), but more I think because I don’t feel like there is room to stop and think about what to say, at the moment.
I think that I’m a bit scared- I have 9 months (!) left.
I have now finished all of the geophysics I planned to do.
I have 2 lots of ground truthing to do, and a whole load of lab work.
I need to report on my last case study, write an excavation report and properly get to grips with the really cool things my GPR software can actually do.
And I need to write it all up….
The last month was very, very busy and up until going on fieldwork a fortnight ago I was busy until late at night most days. The immediate pressure has dropped off now though, and I while a bit of a rest is good I can feel momentum slipping….
I think not blogging has been about hiding from the big scary tasks; writing here always makes me consider the bigger picture.
So, my question for the day:
Do I sit and do some planning (serious timetabling of research and resources) for the rest of the day/ tomorrow…
… or is that procrastination?
Or is it a bigger procrastination to sit and scrabble away at all of the little jobs on the never ending to-do list, studiously ignoring the big pile at the centre?
In other news:
Driving lessons have commenced. I am not as awful as I thought I would be, but it’s hard!
Birthday is later this month and my other half is up to something sneaky. This is not good. Anyone who knows me knows what a curiosity monster I am. I have to keep working hard at not asking questions of him or friends that I am certain are in on the plan.
I still have not got below 12st and am getting a little frustrated with it all… but I’ve not been biking as much as I should so I know what I need to do…
Neko, out, somewhat discombobulated
