I was interrupted by one of my tv shows, the fish in my aquarium, dishes in the sink, what color to paint my nails, a convo with Hubby…and a pot of boiling water on the stove…. I just could NOT pull it together last night. But you know what? I’ve learned to take this all in stride. This Doctorate is a marathon, not a 4 by 4 sprint. The research takes time (an eternity seemingly), finding themes and reading methodology sections take time (even longer) and trying to come up with my own questions via the gaps seems impossible at times. It is, by far, the HARDEST thing that I have attempted in my life. It takes a certain level of focus and discipline to do this–not to mention TIME! I admit that I didn’t believe it when I was warned. This is pure INSANITY–yes, trying the same thing repeatedly expecting different results! I see now why they call doctoral level students “SCHOLARS”! I don’t take it lightly..this is an earned term… I believe it now!
But… I’ze-a keep pressin’ on!
