I’m supposed to be working, but I’ve got no focus and no motivation. My department committee met yesterday to decide on the fate of my prospectus, but failed to notify me of this decision…so I pretty much have to wait until Monday to learn whether or not I’m really, finally ABD. I have another huge fieldwork event coming up tomorrow, and I’m too anxious about it to actually prepare in any real way. And I have absolutely no desire whatsoever to start working on the lecture I have to give in class–and it’s still a couple weeks away.

What I’m saying is, y’all need to start blogging a lot more, because my obsessive refreshing of the Sage reader is getting depressing when there’s nothing new to read.

Thank you.
