Ahhh the weekend.
Nothing really excitiing to report, not like NiCody who hiked Grey’s Peak in Colorado. Dave and Nico got back into town on Saturday. While I was officially at the house all by myself Thursday night, Friday night and Saturday, I COULD.NOT.DO.ANYTHING towards the IRB application(s) I need to finish and revise, the article that I need to get out the door or the 7 applications I need to get out the door by October 1. Seriously, I dont know what my problem was. Except, that maybe I was tired and physically/mentally/emotionally depleted from the run up to ASAs. I have been working every weekend and several nights a week on applications and writing, etc since Memorial Day Weekend.
Not only did I manage to watch an entire season of Mad Men, but I also made blueberry muffins. From scratch. Yeah, they were pretty delicious. I also thought I was going to start a new binder/calendar/planner organization system. Seen here. See, part of the problem is, that I dont really like my current planner… I feel like its on the verge of spilling all of its contents all over the floor. So I started setting up a binder of sorts, like in the link. but I dont really like it so far. The pages are kind of annoying. In any case, I found a link to Erin Condgren, who has a line of planners that might be more up my alley. So I ordered one. I am pretty excited about it.
I also did some grocery shopping. And napping.
I tackled the Great Move out of my office yesterday. Consequently, my back is kinda sore today. In the end, it ended up being pretty annoying. I left campus with 8 boxes of stuff- articles, books, binders, random crap I had in my desk, dishes, food. 6 boxes of stuff if you only count that stuff that will hopefully go on the shelf of the place that hires me and gives me a desk. Or… 6 boxes of stuff that would start a massive bonfire for my “F- Academia” Party. But Dave seems to be supportive of me doing the academic job market again next year (in the event I dont get hired this year anywhere livable). Of course I am not too keen on this- simply because it means I have to keep trying to get published when I am not guranteed a job. Which I wouldnt care about it, except that no matter how I slice it, there are only 24 hours in a day. And as much as I try, I cant do 36 hours of work in 24 hours (especially since sleep is a requirement for me not being a cranky B—-!)
Today is Nico’s first day of school after the three week break. I am half expecting his school to call me to come get him on account of him being a Mega Beast. Oh yes.
Case in point:
