Something I thought about:

  • Revision, rest, recovery, and resetting. The push to finish my full diss draft was pretty intense and involved very little sleep, so the first part of the week involved thinking through structure and edits and the second half on how to relax my brain after being in “go” mode for so long.

Something I did:

  • Finished the full dissertation revision. Sent it to my adviser.
  • Took a break. This mostly involved going to the pool.
  • Started to build LEGO Optimus Prime.
  • Tried not to get sucked into social media/doomscrolling.
  • Caught up on email and admin.

Something I read:

  • Spy x Family mangas by Tatsuya Endo
  • Storm Echo by Nalini Singh
