So, yesterday I entered into a rather unfortunate bet. I need to finish my thesis by March 31st. If not, I have to spend a month being a real girl. If I do, J's father has to do all of the grocery shopping at places I assign (Cityfarm organic markets and fair trade shops).
I'm not sure that it's possible, but it gives me a deadline and an(other) incentive, and that's probably good. So the next couple of months I'm going to be trying very hard to put my head down and go.
It also means that if we have hangouts, dear readers, it would be good if they could be thesis-writing-friendly hangouts. And I know that I haven't been the best at hangouts with people*, but I guess it's going to get worse, at least for a while. I am going to be even more selfish about my time, and if it is hangouts with too many people, or too much Out, or drinking, I will probably say no. It doesn't mean that I don't love you anymore! I just need to get some things (one, enormous, thing) done.
My first mini-deadline is one I made with Ms-ThinkTank-S: I need to get my last chapter draft written by the time I go to Sydney, Feb 17th.
Also: the application piece that I sent in for ActNow has been put up
. It's very similar to a blogpost on my grownup blog
* Where do people find the time to see all of their friends and family often enough? Do other people secretly have more time than me?
