Try Try and Try Again

Work, it would seem is not something I was designed for.

Being a self-diagnosed ADHD sufferer, I can spend barely 5 minutes doing something before I feel the need to check my email, eat something or tidy the eternally messy space around me. This frequently results in a whole bunch of unfinished tasks.

Yesterday, instead of doing what I should have been, i.e. sitting down with my thesis and getting as much of it done as possible, I spent much of the day trying to figure out how to use DJ software. I seem to have got the basics down to some extent, but obviously this will not translate into a skill that can be monitised for quite some time, or ever.

The thesis suffers from a similar problem, or worse, if we are talking return on investment time-wise. Because of the fact that I can see no practical use for a PhD. (in Arts, before you ask), I cannot bring myself to spend the required amount of time working on it. Currently this is particularly frustrating as I am living in the sticks with my parents.

Ski Season

I will be in Verbier from the beginning of December until the middle of April. Can't wait! Second Verbier season, so it will never match up to my first, but the opportunity to get a panda tan should never be passed up.
