Because I am the most wonderful person in the world, I am helping someone finish their dissertation by doing dissertation sprints with them. (This is also a nice distraction from the TTO meetings bookending my day.)

1. TTO Interaction #1
2. Copy activity for class today; post activity & solutions
3. Super boring final paper for that class
4. All track changes on keystone section.
5. Teach
6. TTO Interaction #2
7. Sign summer contract

If that is not enough to fill the time the bonus writing is:

*fix analysis section in the manner demanded by TTO
*reread participants and add as needed
*Outline case studies and the hideous section

I had just put the bedding in the dryer when POW! migraine.  It always seems that when I'm on a roll, something manages to derail me.  I took my medicine and then napped for a bit.  It wasn't terribly restful, but at least the pain is gone now.

Sprint 1:
Finish notes--Book One Topic A
Sort books--pile one
Breakfast

Sprint 2:
Skim/read Book Two Topic A (BTTA)--three chapters
Clean/organize bookcase--shelf one
Wash bedding

Sprint 3:
Skim/read BTTA--three chapters--in progress
Draft dissertation abstract for fellowship application
Clean/organize bookcase--shelf two--in progress

Sprint 4:
Skim/read BTTA--finish
Type notes for BTTA
Shower
Take books to book seller
Drop donations off at Goodwill
Sign and return lease renewal
Pick up enough groceries to make it through until payday

Let's try this again.  I want to be able to meet my friends in about two hours.  I'll probably skip the beer, but I'll definitely enjoy some appetizers.
