Projecting

Well, I believe that I have settled on an exit option for my Master’s program. It was always the plan to do a thesis; however, I have been feeling an increasing amount of pressure to find a topic, select a committee, and get started. Unfortunately, everything has been bearing down on me and the deadline for making these decisions is fast approaching. I’ve ultimately decided to go down a slightly different path. I am going to do a project instead. It’s like a thesis, but executed differently. I am hoping to be able to do a video for the final incarnation. This is an option that I am actually more excited about. So stay tuned for a topic, which I still don’t have. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Write as Rain

I’ve been having a bit of writer’s block lately, but nothing like a big fat deadline to motivate you, especially when that deadline is staring you down, now only hours away. I have this unnerving ability to psych myself out that I have not completely overcome. This evil little minx in the corner of my mind that keeps telling me to “wait a little longer”, “this is so much work”, “you’re really not even sure if you can do this”. That is terrible I know, and not true, but sometimes that little critter can get a hold of my brain and fill me with self-doubt. What a battle. Even though this happens from time to time, I still can usually pull it together before the deadline. This is not to say, I am doing my best work, but I do something…enough. Pushing on…
