I guess I haven't written anything for the past few days because nothing really interesting has happened. There was the ceiling scare, and getting all the stuff out of the clutches of the crazy ex-landlady, but other than that, I've just been buckling down, trying to stay hard at work on my Paper. The thesis is coming along okay. I've got about 15 pages done, which is a quarter of the way there. My hardest problem is staying on task. There's always the thought that I could be checking my email or finding new music on i-tunes or listening to the radio or playing online scrabble, but I have to ignore those urges. (And while I'm ignoring stuff, I've gone ahead and just ignored the giant laundry pile in the corner. I've got work to do!)
The other hard thing to ignore is the summer-turning-into-autumn weather. The air is getting that twinge to it that makes me want to go outside and tramp through piles of orange leaves. There's a stack of crochet patterns I want to make for the chilly weather times, and I want to bake. And I want to explore the city some more before winter sets in. Well, all the more reason to get busy and get this paper done with!
