Post Explaining Why I'm not Posting Lately

In this case, the censored words are "reference", "thesis I'm working
on", "give me your publication information, because finding it
online is very". You can't think dirty when your thinking psych research.
I'm in the last throes of my thesis. Kinda like the last throes of passion, only without the passion and good feelings, and adding frustration, a lack a sleep and a ridiculously large pile of research articles near me at all times.
NOT YET! ....fucking cat...
But don't worry folks, I SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL! (I won't walk into it though. That shit is scary.) I only have to do a final read-through, add my acknowlegement section, and hand it all in for printing in order to receive my grade.

The grades must be submitted by April 24th, so I have less than a week to wait for it.

Thank God, because this academic year has been nonstop work for me: get up, go to work, go to class, go back to work, go home, work on thesis, sleep. It's a sad existence.

The last time I got drunk was in October, folks! OCTOBER. On my birthday.

So to help deal with the sudden onset of free time come a few days, I've made a list of things to do to celebrate my liberation:
  • Find a llama and pet it. Shouldn't be too hard, since I live in the middle of nowhere surrounded by farms.
  •  Read a book that doesn't invlove statistical analysis or personality trait constructs.
Gotta keep my A-Game.
  • Clean my house. It looks like a circus just passed through. I don't know why I used that comparison, but that's the scenario that pops in my head. (Is that a real saying? Has it been stored in my brain all this time, waiting for the oportune moment to jump out, or did I just make it up?)
  • Do ANYTHING that involves not sitting my ass in a chair. Anything.
  • Meet RANDY!
    At this point, there's probably more pictures of him on my blog
    than there are of me. FABULOUS!
    I can't even think of anything else fun I could do. It's been that long since I've had fun.
I would love suggestions! Just keep in mind I am poor, I live in New-Brunswick, Canada and I like to climb things. Especially when I'm drunk. Oh yeah, can't forget:
  • Get wasted!

Suggestions still appreciated.


  1. I feel you. Thesis work is tough...especially when your departmental chair person doesn't do the edits and instead takes 2 months....and then another month...until the deadline passes...

    So yes, feel the pain! Down to the psychology. I'm supposed to get my Master's in 3 weeks, but because of the previously mentioned will now be August.

    You'll get there! The light! it shines! Follow the pretty light.

  2. When I have an influx of time, my go to plan is....

    Clean my house then make a disastrous mess of it sewing dresses and costumes and shit!

    Yep that is the plan! Now if only I could figure out a way to do it full time so I can quit this shitty damn job!

    1. I like that plan!

      Mine would simply replace sewing with painting, because I should be supervised when I sew.

    Lots and lots of *wink wink* :)

  4. Good luck on your thesis. What a great rewarding feeling you'll have once completed. I think you should drink a little to help relax.
    Put on some music and dance around your house.

    1. Thanks! :)

      I just handed it in today. Drinking as we speak ;)
