grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

summer's just so much fun

I'm working on my deadline for my masters- I haven't been outside in days. I'm feeling blue on one hand as most of my friends (and advisor) are all heading off to San Fran tomorrow (thus, the deadline for this draft). And thinking of people makes me realie I haven't seen anyone all summer. Either I feel reclusive and just want to work or hang out with Jo and knit, or everyone else is busy studying etc... Summer is just great like that. We did BBQ a couple times, and we had a picnic once. Yes, on one hand I am feeling blue- the end of a summer of very little fun. But, on the other hand I feel good. I have been plugging away on this master's thesis without managing to get in my own way and make everything really difficult and filled with panic. This is the first draft where I haven't actually been driven by sheer panic and blinded by feelings of total inadequacy. Something must have shifted. Or I just don't care anymore, it is easier to get it done. And there is some summer fun in store. I'll be dog sitting so I'll catch up on knitting and I'll watch some TV and some of my favorite movies. Linda is coming to visit which will be fun b/c having company forces us to leave the house. And then Jony is coming to visit which will be the most fun of all. Okay. Back to this draft. Graphs. Yuck. I'll either bring it down to school tonight or tomorrow morning...
