i had a difficult time getting my palaeontology thesis out. my profezsor was a procrastinator, and took way too much time reviewing draftz. i had a job offer 1500 milez away and a deadline.

eventually i just left, worked at tge job for a year and flew back for the defense. me actually juzt leaving finally got him moving.

Yeah...I don't know if I'll even be able to wait for my professor to review my final draft. He's abroad and only returns on the 20th.

Do you need time off from HAF?

I'm trying to control it without having to be that drastic. :P Besides HAF there are other distractions such as Youtube and Netflix so if I can't find it within me to manage my time better nothing will change. :sad sigh:
Do the things you have to do, and be prepared to take the losses of things you can't do. Among the things you can do- what are the most important and do those. There's no need to worry about things you can't do if you can't change the circumstances as worrying won't change them. Handle the Things that can be done. Temporarily put aside things you won't need until the important things are taken care of. Whatever losses occur, you'll have to live with. Then you can return to having peace of mind.
The only thing possible the world needs saving from are the ones running it.
Oh lord, save us from those wanting to save us.

Well done.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

Cool! Sounds like progress.  :brava:
