the last two week goal was to not spend money on extra things. again, it went pretty well! ate at home or brought my lunch a lot, didn’t really go out too much, didn’t buy any clothes or things like that (despite an impulse trip to target).
the new two week goal is: to not procrastinate on all my work. every quarter, i somehow find myself in the situation where i am madly dashing to write 20 page papers in a day or cramming conference papers and term papers and finals and analyzing and writing and researching and lit reviewing into teeny tiny segments of time. this quarter, i aim to not do that. this is my last quarter of full-time classes, so i might as well go out on a positive note, right? the quarter ends near the end of the month (and i have a conference paper that we are trying to also use as a journal submission due at the same time). for the next two weeks, i will not procrastinate and lag on getting going on my finals and papers. instead, i’ll start thinking more carefully about them, doing lit reviews, outlining, drafting. so when it comes time to write, the background work will be done and i can actually write less rushed, better crafted papers.
