this master's degree is a lot of work.

I was starting to panic about getting my dissertation done on time earlier this week, so I did what always works for me: lists and charts. It involves a post-it note map of the Kelvingrove on my wall and a day-by-day schedule with colored check marks. As long as I stick to the schedule, I'll be okay.
That being said, I'm still having unproductive and frustrating days. The days where I stare at the computer screen blankly and don't get a single thing done. And I think I've finally accepted that sometimes, you can't fight those days. Those days won't cause you to fail. Just quit Word, turn up the country music, and promise yourself you'll try harder tomorrow.
But today was tomorrow, and that means I have a lot of work to do. I'm working on some posts about life in the UK that I hope will be especially interesting to those of you who live/are thinking about living here. I'll be posting those once I feel I've accomplished enough dissertation work to deserve blogging. 
So until I reach that point, posts will be a bit thin on the ground, unfortunately. The sooner I finish my work, the sooner I can come back to play in blog-land. I hope you're all doing well and that I'm hit with a big wave of inspiration so I can come back quickly.

Wish me luck and say a little prayer for me!
