Wow today was the first time in a LONG time since I have worked a full day (we are talking like 9+hrs!). My body is telling that it is NOT happy with me! I have been working on my edits for my proposal and my paper that is due by Wednesday night. Now I am waiting on the second line of edits for the proposal and then I’m hoping to submit my other paper tomorrow. It is as good as it is going to get…I think! I Hope!!
I practiced my presentation again twice tonight! I feel comfortable with the material and I hope that I can hold it together and do a good job at my presentation. I am excited to be going to another conference! I think it will be a lot of fun and unlike Denver..my WHOLE cohort will be there. So we are hoping to have fun, learn stuff, practice our presentation skills and enjoy some time with other students and faculty.
I realized last time I went to a conference how cool it was to talk with other doctoral students. Why? Well they get the crazy nights, the papers, the projects, and the drive to finish our dissertations SOON!!! Gosh I cannot believe that even after my coursework, and comps that I will have another year or so to write and CONDUCT a study! Whew!
Well I am hoping that my proposal goes through (crossing fingers)! That will be major stress off my shoulders!
Oh good thing today…I was actually hungry!! I’m not sure if it was because I was working all day?? Maybe?? I don’t know but I was hungry! It would be nice to have a better appetite. Not eating for a day had me worried…but then again with then nausea that comes and goes..what can I expect.
To finish my long day, I go back to what I was thinking this morning…STIFFNESS!! Yes one part of Rheumatoid Arthritis that I hate…the morning stiffness! Some mornings I get SOOO exhausted just getting out of bed and getting dressed (don’t even talk about getting make up on). And then a lot of times my Fibromyalgia decides that it wants to act up too!! LOVELY! So yes my thought this morning as I was driving home was “wow my stiffness is still there!” 😦 My hands more than anything but I think that is because I have been typing typing typing the past few days. My shoulders and wrists too are mad 😦
But oh well…despite my long day..I got some homework done!! And now I’m stopping for a breath!
