AAARGH.

Okay, all, I know I've been bitching about this for a while now (what? NO I'm not talking about season 6, honestly, you people...) but I'm still stuck doing this ONE. LAST. PAPER for a ONE-CREDIT DIRECTED STUDY which is all I have left to do of grad school and it is KILLING ME. I HAAATE IIIIIIT, flist! With the FIRE of a THOUSAND BURNING SUNS. It's not a very difficult paper but there has been so much else going on in rl that needed processing that I had literally none left over for it, and it was started ages ago and it is now taking over EVERYTHING and I JUST DON'T CARE ANYMORE. And I have absolutely no study discipline or momentum left over, because everything else in me is telling me I'm DONE.

ARGH.

Well, that felt good to get off my chest. And I'm 2/3 of the way through. I mean, it's beginning to feel eerily like the academic equivalent of attempting to approach light-speed, but still. I've got to get there some time, right? Right? Right???

*goes sullenly back to STUPID STUPID paper*

It'll be okay. You're almost done.

It probably doesn't help that I've been listening to those LMFAO tracks practically on loop. But I have a sneaking suspicion that they're the main thing keeping me sane right now. Which in itself is a really, really worrying thing to say....

Hee! Yeah, I noticed you listed it as what you were listening to, and I was going to suggest maybe if you turned it OFF you'd have an easier time concentrating. OTOH, if it's keeping you sane ... party rock on, I guess?

Good luck! Hope the end is in sight.

The sheer silliness of them is helping to distract me from how much I hate doing this. Which is rather more important for the way I function than concentration, honestly.

Thanks! The draft is nearly finished. Then I send it to my prof and we *dialogue* about it, and I revise it. Which is less tiresome – I really like and respect this prof, so that helps. But still. Sigh.
