I've had a crushing headache for what is now the 2nd day. It literally feels like the right side of my head is slowly crushing in. Yesterday work was crazy, in trying to do all that I needed to get done, I stayed late instead of leaving early. I've tried all my usual headache remedies (not all at once)- heat, excedrin, more caffeine, a hot bath, aleive, and even a beer at the writing workshop last night. The beer helped for a little while, but then when I got home it got worse again.
Anyway, it is a little bit duller today, but I am already thinking of how I can lighten the work I have to do so I really get rid of the headache and avoid having it come back.
On another topic, we had a writing workshop last night and everyone read a draft of my article. I knew it would be helpful, but I had no idea how very helpful it would be. I feel actually good about having a draft done, and not discouraged about knowing the work I have to do next. And I feel that what I have to do next is really clear and not so daunting. It was just great.
Now to get through today and get ready for MSS this week. Do I even have anything to wear that looks decently professional?
Edit: I left out the bolded word "not" above. I don't know why. It wasn't some kind of Freudian-typo. I really don't feel discouraged at all. In terms of the ups and downs of grad school, this would be an "up." Honestly. I am just disturbed that it said that here all day!
