I'm still here...procrastinating

Hey all!

To my few readers I post an update. I'm still here, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I'm staring at a pile of crap to write and it's FREAKING me out. I think I finally have the data analysis from my summer project figured out...I think. We'll see how much excel helps me. Otherwise, you'll be reading a post soon how about how much I hate math and worrying myself into circles.I have 2 grants to write for the 2012 summer season and proposals for two new separate projects on  Wood Thrush and Eurasian Tree Sparrow to research and write up. 

But have I started any of this? HELL NO.

I've been researching German Christmas Traditions, recipes, photos and decorations for a German Christmas event we're going to have at the Historic Society. This is MUCH easier to deal with than creating a good scientific study complete with figures and hypothesis.

I've also been working like a maniac in the backyard, hacking down honeysuckle bushes with trunks as thick as my thighs (there's going to be a post about that soon). I've managed to clear a sizable chunk of the yard and replaced honeysuckle with butterfly bush.

Still on Weight Watchers. I've lost 12 pounds now. Still aiming to lose more weight. Hit a bit of a plateau (haven't lost weight in 2 weeks) but I think if I start walking on the treadmill or return to the jungle in the backyard I'll start losing weight again.

I'm still here. New entries soon. I promise.


  1. We should have an Avoidance Club. I have two months left, and I have a hard time focusing on job search and applications. And the ones I do are ignored or in the Black Hole of Death or ???? who knows.

  2. Hehe. I think that club would have a LOT of members. Perhaps we perform better under the pressure of that limited time constraint??
