Procrastination strikes again

Please stop burning, Colorado. (Photo from KDVR)

My motivation to get anything done this week appears to be absolutely shot. I am going to blame one part of this on an unusual amount tiredness, and the other part on the fact that my state is more or less burning itself into the ground.

But progress has definitely been made on one front! I met with my comps proctor today and have my five major questions more or less decided upon. I need to send him an email soon that writes them out in an actual coherent question form and come up with 4-5 bibliographic sources for each question. I am currently on my 10th book with plenty more in the queue, so that won’t be a problem. In August I will submit three pages on each question. So yay, I now have an actual direction to proceed in!

Now that I have a direction, I need to get back to work! Which means I need to outline for myself what I need to get done this weekend, since I am clearly lacking internal incentive.

  • Go to the Yves St. Laurent exhibition and post a review of it here Done 6/30/12
  • Finish Simon O’Sullivan’s Art Encounters Deleuze and Guattari and post a review Done 7/1/12
  • Read the catalog essays for the exhibition West of Center (and ideally post a review of it by Sunday night)
  • Cinema on Etsy #3 (I’m doing a very bad job of keeping up with the weekly thing)
  • Watch “Craft Wars” (and possibly post a review) Can’t find it online 😦
  • Start the panda hat!! Started 6/30/12

Wish me luck on getting all this done!
