I would make a crappy clown
Juggling, lately I feel like all I am doing is juggling, doing the best I can to sort of do everything that needs to be well enough to keep from dropping the ball. The house, kids and my job(s) are not the main problem, although they do cause me stress and take up a lot of time, they are not what sets me on edge. The one thing that is making me feel like I am about to drop the ball is my dissertation. It is just not getting done. It is taking forever and I don't have the time I need to just sit down, somewhere quiet, and write. That will change this week because it has to change. I think about it all day long, and while there are moments I *could* write something, I don't have the blocks of time I need to organize my thoughts. I need to be able to sit down, reread what is written, review my notes and then write...that can't happen in 15 minute increments. It is stressful, it is overwhelming and I understand now how people just stop at comps and take the ABD status.
