I downloaded some journal lists from Discovery on Monday.
And then on Wednesday I had a migraine. One of those I-want-to-rip-my-face-off, make-it-stop, three-days-of-horror migraines. Usually, I get them because I’ve been working too hard, too much stress, not drinking enough water, not getting enough sleep–and then I ate cheese or grapefruit or looked at the sun or something and that’s it.
Anyway, it put my plans for research on hold. I had to postpone my research consultation with a librarian. I didn’t get to Shut Up and Write.
On Friday, I drew this:
I’m somewhere between ‘Where is this mountain?’ and ‘Am I making any progress?’
So, a rubbish week. I keep waiting for the stage when I become a model researcher… but I suspect it might not happen. That’s what you risk when you are an academic in public.
