Last Minute Lucy Strikes Again
I am so frustrated with myself. Despite the fact that I started compiling information for my job application file months ago, I am still skimming perilously close to a deadline. All the work I did over the summer on the file is now being redone because I don't like it (teaching and research statements have now been written FOUR times each), my teaching evaluations are only half compiled (I'm making a huge Excel spreadsheet and typing out student comments for those institutions that simply want a teaching evaluation precis and not the whole packet of evals), and I'm not satisfied with two of the three dissertation chapers I'm submitting. My CV is finalized (thank God), and my teaching portfolio is almost done and looks pretty good.
How the heck am I supposed to finish a dissertation when there's all this stuff to do? I feel like I've been away from my research for weeks.
Wish me luck. First deadline is next Thursday. I think I'm going to vomit.
