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

knit me more time...

okay, I admit it.

This semester I took on too much. I really don't know what I was thinking. I really didn't have much of a choice this time. Usually I am not able to admit this. Sometimes when I take on too much, I am able to back out of something, or at least relax my expectations about accomplishing something. Not this time- if I could I would. There isn't any way out- it will just have to be like this and I will just have to trust that January 5th will come soon enough. Here's everything on my plate: * seminar paper draft/pre-dissertation proposal (due 11/29) * reading for that proposal * studying for a prelim (Jan. 4th) * 2-3 more sadistics exams (one this Thursday) * 5 more weekly reaction papers due for political science * readings for both seminars * working 20 hours a week Well I thought writing it all down would make me feel better. Nope. But there are rewards to all this, right? Passing the prelim and getting stats out of the way will feel so wonderful. My reward will be going to Maine and doing nothing for 10 days in January. Getting this semester out of the way means I only have one class left. And yesterday when I met with my advisor about my seminar paper, she wanted to talk about who would be on my dissertation committee- pretty exciting! There is a small, small light at the end of the tunnel, I guess.
