Ology-Day 2005 is over. After 23 talks, an award ceremony, and food and coffee catering issues, I was quite brain-dead last night. Everything went smoothly, but I was on a post-performance adrenaline withdrawal. I am planning to go in the field tomorrow, but I couldn't seem to find the crucial piece of equipment. Hopefully, when I get into school today it will be right under my nose.
Am feeling very stressed out at the moment about the amount of research stuff that I feel like must be gotten done RIGHT NOW. I know that realistically I have plenty of stuff for a 15-minute talk in a week, and I should just put the powerpoint together, but somehow teaching in July feels like a looming brick wall and has pushed me over into panic mode where I try to do everything at once, with no regard for what actually should be prioritized. (Like posting to this blog, and writing run-on-sentences.)
