Not Enough Time

As Maura stated in her blog post, now that the end of the semester is here there’s so much to still do. I have two presentations next week one for this course and the second for The Language of Racial and Ethnic Identity. I am not too nervous about these presentations, yet, but following I have three papers due for The Language of Racial and Ethnic Identity. I enjoy the conversations held in that class, but not having hard deadlines for assignments increased my procrastination. Needless to say, tomorrow will consist of me eating and putting up the Christmas tree while Friday through Sunday will consist of me typing away. It is time to buckle down and I want to someway somehow knock out the three papers by Sunday. By doing this, I will be able to solely focus on my thesis for the next three weeks.

I’ve been reflecting upon what else to include in my thesis aside from my research and I have seen how others are including personal experience. I put a hold on my journal entries about my day, but now I have begun continuing to write. Before I was focusing on seeing what was taking up the majority of my day, while balancing my tasks, and most importantly, what I did right and what went wrong, which ties into work-life balance. Now that I am referencing articles with more regards to gender and work-life balance, I would like to see if there is any instances in my days that relate to what I have come across thus far.

I am aware that in the “Developing a Literature Review” it states that we are able to draw out opposing views. Will I able able to add this into my finalized thesis paper next smeester? Having sections where I am combating other’s ideas to bring out my central inquiry and highlight how my work attempts to produce new knowledge to the field of Writing Studies.
