Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

Dissertation vs. The City

"Let past lapses of failure go, and focus on what you can do today and tomorrow to reach your goals," likely that will be my mantra for tomorrow. Taken from a very helpful link http://www.grad.ubc.ca/gradpd/helpfullinks/success.html

It has been a great weekend for my scholarly work. I literally have made more progress this weekend than I did all of August. Did I mention I had the whole month of August off?

Tonight however the following are competing with my writing:
  • I am more preoccupied with reorganizing my purses (and I have more than a few)
  • Thinking about what to bring to the bar-b-q tomorrow afternoon and if I should object to the Patron Silver Margarita and just drink it straight (my papi taught me well)
  • Maybe make the nopal salsa for the bar-b-q (no it is not a carne asada)
  • Reach out and text/call/walk to a friend and enjoy the city (so many DJs so little time)
  • Make a packing list for my next two weekend trips to Las Vegas and LA

Yes tonight it feels like me against the music, Frisco is soo good for that. I suppose I will treat it like any other craving- delay response and see if it goes away. Maybe if I watch some Current or Entourage I will satisfy my current distraction...
