What?! Where'd January go?!?


Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I got a couple of nasty surprises today that really shouldn't have been surprises. It's January 30th. That means only ONE more day on January 2013.

A small piece of me is beyond excited about this because there are so many fabulous adventures coming up this year. The overwhelming majority is doing the giant-cartoon-watching-the-tra
in-hit-you eyes.

I knew this month was going to go by quickly since I have firm deadline to finish my PhD and time never slows down when you'd like it too. I'm shocked at how quickly it's gone though. I know I've been working but I can't really remember what I did because I think I'm still working on the same stuff and haven't crossed anything off. I also realized that I have exercised ONCE, as in one time, all month. Phooey!

February is already a bittersweet month for me. On of my best friends in England is coming to visit next week. I'm excited to see her and show her around, but I'm not looking forward to trying to squeeze in several hours of writing every night after spending the day out. Another friend is coming up from Mexico and really wants me to go wedding dress shopping with her. I couldn't bear to tell her that she'd have to go wedding dress shopping alone in a different country, so that's getting squeezed into my busiest final week in the lab. Somewhere in there is my birthday so the boyfriend will visit but at the rate I'm going it might be more enjoyable for if he stayed 300+ miles away.

Looking forward, I need a reward system. I have so many things to accomplish and little reward other than I don't have to do them anymore. Pretty nice prize but not especially motivating. I'm looking for low cost, low sugar ideas. If you have one please share in the comments section?
