So it was my goal to finish two whole chapters of the dissertation this weekend, one each day. The foundations are already there, I just needed to craft them into the finished pieces. I only got one almost done. I did get a bit distracted. However one is better than none. I have made up a timetable schedule that I’m determined to stick to that should have me churning out 3 chapters a month over the next 3-4 months, turning them in to my committee each month and demanding feedback from them. This should put me in good standing come the beginning of the Spring semester to just finally, once and for all, get done. It’s going to take a lot of discipline on my end to basically sit at the PC and just work and not let myself be distracted.
Tomorrow is October 1st, the first day of the month of Halloween! When I was a kid I decorated our house up for a few years in a row so that basically, if you were at the end of our block, you could spot our house in the dark because every window was lit up with glowing ghosts and other spooks. For some reason I got it in my head today that by damn, I was decorating the front of our house this year! I’m going to hit the Halloween Superstore and TarJay this week to by bunches of tombstones, lights, ghosts, masks and everything I need. I have a plan in my head, I just have to see if I can make it happen. If I can, be prepared for tons of photos! We don’t get any trick-or-treaters because of where we live, but we do have people who will see it as they drive by or go on hayrides and stuff at the farm at night, so that’s good enough for me.
