At least *something* got done!

I made myself go in to the lab today to force myself to work on job applications.

Instead, I made some decent headway on a leafcutter manuscript that has gotten the back-burner for the past three weeks while I've scrambled to get other more immediate things done. You know, like all those talks and workshops and cricket manuscript revisions and manuscript reviews.

Not a total loss. But for this week, I am going to have to set a goal of getting out one application per day, on top of writing a conference talk and wrapping up the cricket manuscript resubmission.

Working on a manuscript is a pretty terrible form of procrastination, if you know what I mean.

Yes, "busman's procrastination", like a busman's holiday.

But don't ask me what I did today, despite a huge to-do list.

Yeah, I figured I'd make my confessional up front, partly as motivation to get my rear in gear and get the important stuff done, whether I like it or not. :-D
