Progress today...

Today's tasks checked off:

* Collect citations for paper for HICSS 2005
* Clean some data gleaned from blogcensus
* Craft L702 (research practicum) proposal & send to Susan for edits
* Have a fender-bender
* Invite some folks over for dinner on Saturday
* Bang my head against the wall a little more and continue to feel like I am making 0 progress with my own writing and thinking.

I'm overstating the amount of banging-head-against-wall that I'm doing, but there's still an element of that present. It takes a LOT of work for me to accumulate momentum, and so far this summer I haven't felt like things have been going very well. Lots of head-banging seems imminent.

Some stuff *is* going well - like my figuring out what I want to do as my project for L710 (the course that follows the pair of L702 courses I'm required to complete) - but I'm still not possessed of a lot of time to spend on what i *should* be doing. I seem to get stuck doing what I "ought" to do rather than what, by most lucid accounts, I *must* do. This is a hard thing. I say yes to too many things, too often.
My response: I should be archiving our MSN Messenger conversations, as usually you are far from making "0 progress" with thinking. Ok, maybe it's not all centered on your work totally but all of that stuff does come around in the amazing soup we call academia. Just hang in there. Or could it be that the banging is shaking up the thought process and making you forget what you have been stewing on? Think about that one.

p.s. One does not plan for a fender bender...well not usually at least. LOL
