While classes have been out for well over a month, I'm just now finally shifting into summer gear. Part of this was the near continuous cold rain last month, but also pulling together data for my advisor's speculative abstract. Summer is a wonderful time to delve more deeply into a subject, without the interruptions of class, or quite as many meetings. It can be harder to stay motivated, with the lovely weather/ really poorly regulated office temperatures. Therefore, I'm going to set my self some goals.
My goals for June and July:
Finishing editing manuscripts
Get my advisor to *read* my first manuscript, and figure out where we're sending it
Finish writing preliminary proposal
Put together for August meeting
Run simulations for completely unrelated August data review
Get second manuscript read (which is a reach, but might as well try).
We'll see how this goes...
