It’s exactly 11:45 pm on Sunday as I am writing this sentence. I told my P.I. I will work on my presentation this weekend. This is for a conference I am attending next week. I am working on it right now, so what I told him still holds. I hope I don’t have to go through the whole thing and do a practice talk tomorrow. I’m not sure if I can whip up a coherent presentation in the next hour or so. It’s just that it’s harder to work on weekends during the summer. You don’t want to miss out on all the fun and you want to savor every single gorgeous day that mother nature gives you. This has been another beautiful weekend with friends and I loved every single minute of it. I know my happy days are numbered… once I get my paperwork signed, I will really have to prioritize writing the dissertation and preparing for the thesis defense. I think I will just enjoy the remaining weeks I have before things start to get serious on the “academic” part of my life. And now, let’s get back to working on that presentation, before Monday kicks in.
