Early Morning Rain

It’s 7:39 a.m. and I’ve been up all night again. I usually am these days. I noticed that I prefer working through the night- in dark, quiet solitude, rather than during the day. I’m making tea and getting ready to start on my literature review: I’ve completed my Methods and Results Drafts. The literature review is usually the part of the scientific paper that introduces the hypothesis; which is why it’s also called the Introduction (section). All in all, it’ll be 10 pages or so, and so I’ve been working for weeks on drafts. I’ve never been more tempted to quit! There’s roughly 5 weeks to go still before the semester ends. I messed up by going out and getting a batch of fresh shots. I forgot how fun it was!

This is a collage I made from fresh leaves found in my back yard two days ago.

    BEAUTIFUL! This was a relaxing post to read, hehe. Except the literature review part. I’m going to miss the semester off that I didn’t have to write papers 😉

    • Man, I’m officially one week late now- my professor is pure gold. 1 & 1/2 pages down- 4 & 1/2 to go- ugh. I can’t wait until the semester’s over- I’m so taking a few years down!
