I swear someone must have hit the fast forward button this week. I cannot believe Wednesday check in is already here!! I just have a quick update as I am buried in the paper I am writing for one of my classes on John Fowles' The French Lieutenant's Woman. Great book and the research is interesting, but I seriously should have picked something easier for my critical summary. Anyways, here's my progress so far:
Writing: I am two thirds of the way to my goal for the week. I've participated in two afternoon word sprints, well parts of them--45 mins on Monday and 30 minutes Tuesday, and then did some additional writing Tuesday to get to the two hour mark. The rest of the week is going to be full trying to get this paper done so I don't know if I will be able to sneak in another hour, but I will definitely try.
Research/Writing Papers: *hangs head in shame* Just...I don't even have an excuse for being as behind as I am. I need to get this done by Sunday. It's not due until Tuesday, but I need it done by Sunday so the rest of my homework can get done in time. I did get about 2 pages (okay, really a page and a half, but it's almost 2!) written last night, so that's a start I guess. I need to just buckle down. Like seriously, someone needs to tie me to my chair and not let me move until I finish this. Who wants to tie the knots so I can't get out?
In all seriousness though, I am thinking of using Lauren's formula which she tweeted to me yesterday: 1 hour of work on my paper, half hour for play. If I do this today, Thursday, and Saturday, I can get my workouts in (or laundry, or maybe even a little writing in) during that 1/2 hour of play, while also getting some pages knocked out for this paper. This might be a better idea than having me tied to the chair. I will give it a test drive today, and keep the rope handy just in case.
Working out: Zero out of three so far, but I am hoping to get to this later in the week. Things should be settling down with work starting tomorrow afternoon, so that will leave me more time to workout (and get my paper written, ugh!)
I have not lifted a hand to read a book at all this week, which is driving me crazy because I have so much I want to read. I also haven't decided on my blog post for the week as so far nothing in my draft folder is really inspiring me. Although these aren't official ROW80 goals, I would like to get something posted by Saturday, but this will depend on how diligent I am with this paper.
How is everyone's week going? Meeting your goals still or needing to adjust? Good luck this week and oh yeah, I almost forgot! It's the Stanley Cup Playoffs, so gotta give some love to the best team (in my opinion) in all of the world. Let's go New York Rangers--we need to bring the Cup home!
