Motivation

I’ll give myself until August to do this thesis, just to see if I can.
Hey, if I can hack my mind and change my sleeping patterns, I should
be able to do this. It’s not an ideal situation because my motivation
for finishing the thesis is mainly extrinsic: I owe it to others. My
reasons? It gives me an excuse to stick around in Canada for a little
longer. And a degree from U of T might come in handy. So it’s still
worth doing, even if I feel restless. At the very least, I can uwe the
time to find out how to work when I don’t feel particularly into it.
I’ll do it anyway because my dad said that if you’re ever going to
quit, do your best and make them miss you when you walk away.

August. We’ll see how I feel then.

Simon’s parents are God’s gift to cats, really. Who else would get
outdoor heating pads to make winter a little more bearable for feral
cats? Awwww…
