Any chance I get to eat bacon and eggs to breakfast rather that (boring) open-faced, cold Swedish sandwiches, I am going to do it. Bacon yummmmmm, cold ham and cucumbers ughhhhhh.

We are going on a tour of a castle today. But we are scheduled to eat lunch outdoors and it feels really cold and rainy.

I feel really down today and really just want to be alone.

DOUBLE WHAMMY.  I didn’t want to split this set up.

The whole time I was researching for this chapter, I kept telling people, “I hate the researching stage; I never feel like I’m making progress.  I’m really looking forward to writing.”  Now that I’ve got my outline and I’m writing, all I can think is, “Life was so much easier when starting work for the day meant pulling out my Post-it flags and cracking a book, when all I had to do was absorb and process.  Now I have to actually produce stuff?!”  The thing is, I have a fantastic outline for this chapter, so it’s not even like I’m starting from scratch.  It’s all in my head; it just needs to be moved onto the screen.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy writing when I’m in the middle of it and have a good flow going.  It’s the STARTING to write that’s really a problem.

Currently dying at another conference. My supervisor added me to the round-table discussion without telling me. Wtfffff
