I'm having a bit of a flag today. Have been working full days for so long now I've forgotten what it feels like to have a day off! Y*day was meant to be my day to go through all my assessed essays and get them all edited & referenced. Well I was in the library from 10-5, didn't have a lunch break, got through them all...but there are still some parts where I couldn't find references, and the end of my h,m&m essay hasn't been written yet. :/

Got home last night, had tea, then tried to write my references up. Took me 3 hours to get one half done! :/ So I went to bed at about 10:30, got up at 7:30 today & got stuck in. Had a bit of a break at 10 when a letting agent came to look at the house, then went back to it. Finally had the references mostly done by 12ish (but there are a few where I can't find the origins of them, so I'll have to go to the library and trawl through the books), and then I spent the last hour staring at h,m&m & trying to write some more.

I can bash out a conclusion easily, but my problem is that I'm still 500 words done on the minimum part of the word limit - don't want to go searching for another point to bring into the main of the essay; would take ages to find, then write, then ref, then add to conclusion. But equally I don't think I can drag the conclusion out for another page.

So I've been looking over my project essay, and miraculously I ended last week only 500 words down on my target for the week! :)

I emailed my supervisor my new idea on sunday, but she hasn't gotten back to me about it yet which is worrying.

So I figure I should probably do at least the extra 500 today. I'm already going to be running over into next week at this rate, unless I miraculously pull 3,000 word out of the bag by thursday (which would be 500 more than I was at that time last week). Hmm...might be doable with 2 full days in the library (it's open from 8:30am to 12am again now).

Think I'm going to aim for that. Today will do extra 500, maybe structure my sections a bit better. Ooh, and I'm going to make tons of chilli & freeze about 3 portions of the stuff!

Gonna just leave h,m&m for now I think. I really can't be arsed with the library today, so might as well take it along with me when I go in for a full day tomorrow & then I can check all the dodgy references I found today as well. Joy.
