Me so Lazy

I've wasted the day away, and I can't remember how!

Towards about 6, I began getting anxious that I did nothing (I don't mind doing nothing, but doing nothing when you are in the "i will do work" mindset is the worst, since you don't really enjoy doing nothing, yet you have nothing to show for your day. If you tell yourself in advance that you have nothing to do all day, then you end up having so much more fun and relaxation.) that I pulled out some copies and finally decided which journal I am going to submit to first.

First, I pulled out the 7 or so journals that would be the most perfect for me, where I'd have a lot less work to do revising and rewriting, and out of those, I chose the one that allows online submissions without making you print off 4 copies and send them in. Yeah, I know, quality, but I'm lazy and to be fair, our nearest post office is quite far away.

I'm working on the assumption that, like grad school applications, you have a 1/10 chance. So I'll probably end up re-submitting anyways.

Tommorow, my goal is to scrutinize the specifications, and then work on pulling the best 8,000 words out of my dissertation to fit the purpose. Then I'll have to rework the style, as it wasn't written according to whatever style it is they want, let it sit, and after Czech, go back and do it again before submission.

Hmm, I'm feeling distinctly unexcited about this. And about everything.

Coud this be post-application blues? I feel like going back to bed and hoping for a more productive tommorow.
