“We must strive harder, and reach higher, to make tomorrow better than today.” – The Wind Singer, by William Nicholosn
I’m trying something new here. I had the idea to record myself talking over the issues I’ve been thinking about of late, mainly surrounding the PhD and my efforts to get well and get back on track. I don’t have the time/energy/motivation to do much with the blog at the moment because I’m either working or talking to others about how I’m coping (or not) with the stress of the PhD but I don’t want to abandon you, my few yet treasured readers, either. I figured talking for a bit, recording it then tidying it up might be worth a shot, so here we are. The train of thought is a bit jumbled in places but there are important things I have to say regarding perfectionism and the Puritan Work Ethic and their manifestation as procrastination, which may be of interest to you. Also, you get to hear my voice!
