Self motivation can be hard

I’m sure we’ve all come to this conclusion some time in our lives, and I’m certainly struggling with it today. I don’t have a hard time motivating myself to write, but I have been trying to make a schedule that I can use to keep myself on track while I’m writing.

I’m having a hard time making an entire semester schedule when I haven’t even started my program yet. I made a schedule for next week that I’m going to try and stick to, and hopefully that will let me know if it’s going to work.

I would just hate to make a schedule for an entire semester and then have an adviser tell me to rework it. I don’t mind fixing it if it makes it better. I just mind taking the time to fix it when I’d rather be working on something else.

I bought my plane ticket for the residency, which is very exciting. I’m slightly terrified of flying, so this will also be a test of my ability to handle nerve wracking situations. Luckily I was able to find flights that only had one connecting flight each way.

In other news, I bought a fish. That might not be exciting to some, but I love fish tanks, and I really missed having one since we moved to Seattle. It’s just a small tank, and we bought a little Beta fish who seems to be enjoying his new surroundings, but he still doesn’t have a name. He currently is being addressed as “Fishy Fishy”, which is rather unimaginative, but I just haven’t figured out a proper name. And he isn’t be enough yet to know if he’s actually a boy. For all I know it may be a girl, and I don’t know if she’d appreciate being called “Charles” or something else of the masculine variety.

I’d hate to give my fish identity issues.

Anyhow, I hope you all are having a wonderful Friday!

Happy Reading
