Oof. Uni work is boring today! I've read and researched for almost a million hours (no exaggeration...) and must now accept that the time has come to actually start writing. It's feeling like a real struggle, and I keep finding so many more fun things to do. Tomorrow I'm packing my bags and going to the mamma bear house in the hope that some countryside quiet will let me focus.
So tell me... how do you get motivated when you really don't want to do something? I need all the help I can get!
And on with the roll call of what's been distracting me from 4,000 words of youth work management theory this week :)
Sadly not a lot apart from textbooks! However, some things I ordered from Amazon arrived today, so added to my must-read list are Henrietta's War: News From the Home Front 1939-42 by Joyce Dennys and Wartime Women: A Mass Observation Anthology: A Mass-observation Anthology of Women's Writings, 1937-1945 by Dorothy Sheridan.
A lot of Glenn Miller, as usual! I've discovered the amazing effect opera has on my levels of concentration, so I've also been playing a lot of The Magic Flute. And here's my two favourite songs of the moment...
Best TV introduction ever?
I've hardly turned my TV on in the last week or so! But when I have, I've been mainly watching / falling asleep to series one of Land Girls Thoroughly fluffy and enjoyable :)
Any time I'm away from my uni work. Soy vanilla lattes. Practising my ukulele. Writing plans. Convincing people in the office they should cheer every time I walk in the room. All the pictures my sister sends me of her baby bunnies. Catching up on The Archers. Buying tickets for more dances :) Twitter! I finally understand it (maybe)... find me @Nana_Jen
And that's it! Hope everyone's got a lovely weekend planned. In with the studying, I'll hopefully be off to watch Black Swan, finally!
