9-finger typing

February 14, 2008

The semester has officially caught up with me. But I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel—in the last few days I’ve finished or offloaded three major projects and made huge headway towards totally completing a fourth. I have two major things left to do, one which (sigh) I am already hugely behind on which has repercussions for other people (i.e., they’ve got work to do after I’m done), and one which I am also delayed on but that only affects me (i.e., if I don’t get it done, at least it means I’m the only one who will have to work on it after graduation).

But I am well underway on both of these projects, and I feel good about them. I also am going to be getting some help on one of them soon, so the light at the end of the tunnel is really shining brightly. Still, between now and mid-May I have to finish these two projects, one of them much sooner than the other, study for and take the MPRE, and . . . wait, that can’t be it, can it? I also have an exam to take as well as a clinic to keep participating in, but I am less concerned about those—that’s just the daily work, I guess. And there’s the law school musical, of course, but that’s just plain fun—diversion—so I don’t really count that. What it all means is that my plate is looking a little cleaner lately, which I appreciate.

It also means that I have to be a little more focused since I have fewer things to be distracted by and I admit that I am not the best at being focused on one or two things; I like to have a lot going on at once so that I can jump back and forth. But it will be good for me—finding the diversions in the monotony? (Not that there’s a lot of monotony in the work I’ve got ahead of me; it’s just that it is almost certain to seem neverending at some point.)

Meanwhile, I’ve got a burn on my left thumb, which makes it tough to type (I’m going between my keyboard and an ice cube wrapped in a paper towel) so I’m taking a bit of a Valentine’s Day break to watch a movie with Mr. Angst. I am sure I will regret this in the morning, but ah well.
