This was supposed to be a blog about extracting every ounce of pleasure from life, but it seems to be, in fact, largely a dream journal with notes on baking, Trader Joe's, and celebrity chefs.
The First Rule of Narya (stolen from Hunter Thompson): when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.The Second Rule (which is more important, in this particular case): First this. Then that.Also, if I can help in any way, I will try to do so. If it's any use, pretend you're writing the lit review as a letter to me.
I think I want to quit grad school. I'm not pro. I just want to sleep and eat carbs.
Well, do NOT focus on the First Rule; go to the Second Rule without delay.And why do you want to quit?Think of the texts you must review the way you would have approached a classics text. Or something.
Second rule! Without delay! Ho!I made an outline. That will hopefully help. I will spend today in the library. I realized I've been avoiding the library since the Great Library Parking Lot Flat Tire Incident of December 08.I think I want to quit largely because of my thesis. You see, now I've learned everything I care to learn about this topic. I still have to do more research and write, however. But in my mind, I am done.Also, after years of shiatsu school and work, and years of shiatsu practice-building and work, and now grad school and work, I reckon I am simply tired.Also? It's February. I'm always miserable in February.
