Thank you for being so respectful of my wishes today and only posting really really boring and uninteresting stuff on your blogs! You are now free to post about whatever you wish. I managed to work most of the day without stopping for any blog reading breaks. Okay, I'm lying. I read a few posts here and there.
But, let me tell you ... I've still got it in me! I managed to pump out the entire draft of my proposal by 2:00 p.m. today. 23 pages of magic. I'm pretty excited and feel like I have at least somewhat made up for lost time. I also managed to get a few questions answered from the ethics board, narrow my recruiting options down to two organizations and prepare for some upcoming meetings. I forgot what it feels like to be (academically) productive. It feels gooooood!
In other news, I quit biting my nails! That's one item off the bucket list. I haven't been biting for about 1.5-2 months. I am quite proud of myself. I find that if I keep them prettied up with some clear polish that I am less likely to bite. Right now, they are all residing just above my finger tips which is a huge accomplishment for a girl who has lived 20 plus years with the shortest bitten nails in the history of the world. The problem is after years and years of biting they are very brittle and weak so they break very easily. Do any of you have any suggestions of what I can do to strengthen them? Right now I'm using Nutra Nail Green Tea Nail Hardener which is working okay but I'm having to re-apply every two days, which just isn't cool. Suggestions, please!!
In even more other news, I can't stop eating chocolate. I always have some dark chocolate in the house for when I have a craving. Usually a bite or two and I'm satisfied. I just cannot kick this craving over the past few days. I've drastically depleted my dark chocolate stockpile and now I'm sitting here with a small bowl of chocolate chips. Please don't judge me.
I'd also like to say thanks for a few awards I've received in the past little while ...
Thanks to Cristina and C for awarding me with the Lovely Blog Award! Thanks, Gals!
And Brittany was so gracious as to present me with this:
Thanks, I love your blog, too!
The bowl of chocolate chips is now gone. I feel sick to my stomach. Perhaps I've kicked the craving.
