End of First Session

W

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.

wow. its great to hear that a prof. that once had to get on me for always turning stuff in is himself a procrastinator. i dont know if it makes you feel better to know that i sympathize with you, but it makes me feel a whole lot better!
