14 Hours

I slept for fourteen hours yesterday. I don’t know why, maybe I was just very very tired. I was just at home yesterday, I did a load of laundry, and then read a book. But maybe, I was very subliminally tired, so around 4 PM, I decided I read a book in bed. I became so tired so when I finished a chapter, I decided to go to sleep.

I woke up at around 10:30 PM, checked my watch, and realized that I have been sleeping since. I then went back to sleep.

Then I woke up at around 6:30 AM, this morning. Wow. I must be so tired, but it didn’t feel like it, since I didn’t do any strenuous activity before that. Maybe that was just sleep debt payment.

Anyway, I am back here in my office, working. I have turned in my dissertation proposal’s first draft, and my adviser told me that it wasn’t bad, but it needed improvement. Well, I figured that, but I just didn’t know how to improve it so I turned it in. But, it wasn’t bad for a first draft. So, we are meeting next week to improve it, for a couple of hours. Hopefully, the improvements would be to the right direction, so it can go to the rest of the committee members.

I am also designing some stimuli for two experiments: one for a collaborative effort, and another for some other collaborative effort.

I need to go to the store later today, to get some cleaning supplies and a new shower curtain liner. I am doing some spring cleaning, since my old roommate is moving out, and I want to clean the place thoroughly before taking in a new one. Chances of getting a new roommate goes higher if the place is clean. So I am replacing the old shoper curtain liner, and then bleaching the whole bathroom.

No news regarding funding issues, yet. I haven’t received any rejections, but I haven’t received any offers either. There are some other opportunities, but I am reluctant to apply for them at this moment, because it isn’t the most effective way of finishing a Ph.D., especially since it involves being away from Buffalo, and that it also means that my dissertation research would also be delayed. So if I can avoid that, then that would be the way to go.

I suppose I should end this post here. I think this is enough for a break.
