This afternoon, I will work somewhere without wifi

A helpful note I made myself in chapter 2:

Eugenics and the Birth Control Movement I need to read this history section and figure out wtf I am saying that is either a) new, b) insightful, c) related to my freaking point.

Also, I realize now that my chapter should have a freaking point.

Oh look! Jack in a cute towel!


This coffee shop? Is full of loud eaters.

In high school, I had a creative writing teacher who got fired for touching students inappropriately (that is a totally random detail, but I felt like it went with the lack of an organized point in this post), and he has the cliched advice "Show; don't tell" written in many different languages hanging all over his classroom. I really need to take that advice-- I think part of why my dissertation is a mess right now is because I state the conclusions of my analysis before I actually perform it and then when I get to the conclusion, I have nothing to say.

Hmmm.

Haha, great post. Ditto on the no internet. For some reason it makes me so much more productive. Hmm.

Internet is a downfall to me too. It eats my day! Hopefully you figured something out for Chapter 2!

I could never get work done with the internet taunting me, either.
