Organizational Skills Needed
I am--on the whole--a very organized person; however, I have approached my exams and dissertation project in the most haphazard and unorganized fashion. If only I had been a bit more careful and diligent. But no, my notes are all over the place: some are on the computer, others in notebooks; some are labeled, some aren't; some texts that I read only have marginal notes. It is all very confusing. I need to create a system to somehow organize this mess I've made for myself.
Laws of Physics
On Monday, D and I chaperoned her niece's field trip to The Great Escape. I really love rides and always have, but I've learned that at this age, I have to be careful not to overthink them too much. When I realize that I'm relying upon the laws of physics, I get a little freaked out. Maybe it's the English major in me--I'm sure the laws of physics are quite reliable, but when I was on that Bobsled ride, unattached to any kind of track...that REALLY freaked me out. I think it is something like centripetal force that is holding us on there. The entire time I had this intense visual of a picture from my high school science book of a car going around a sharp curve.
