My goal for today is to re-acquaint myself with SPSS (my old friend) and input data for about 100 questionnaires. :-(

I'd love to say I'm looking forward to this, but alas, I am not.

I don't know what's wrong with me, I feel SO sleepy, I have for the last few days, I just sit and stare at my computer. I've tried exercise and coffee but nothing seems to work!

I slept in until 10 :$

Sneaks, hearing about your busy morning makes me feel even more guilty! A nap could help if you have time?

So far I have had one run through of my conference presentation and tidied it up a little.

Writing target for now is 500 words.

Yay, I've just finished 1/6 - it is the one I did most of the work on yesterday though :$ its SO DULL! I wish I could do it while watching tv, but I tried that yesterday and just stared blankly at house buying/selling shows instead of working.

I might be sneaky and find interviews that are really short so I can get 6 done today! :p

Yay, I just hit yesterday's target!

Now for today's. Finish the section of the literature review I'm currently working on, and make a reasonable start on the next section.

This is a great idea for a thread, can I join too. I've always wanted to join an accountability thread or create one of my own but I've never been brave enough! Here's my goal for the rest of the day - get started on writing a second draft of my data chapter.

I can see this thread being really helpful. Goal number 1 = establish mode of analysis for my cognitive interviews and begin it.

Goal number 2 = Ask someone in the know whether doing 12 tomatoes a day is good for PhD work? Anyone?

ooh Wal, 12 tomatoes is very good! I have a love hate relationship with mytomatoes. Today I hate it, its trying to tell me what to do.
What kind of analysis will you be using?

Well since finishing that 1st interview analysis, I've made my lunch, the post arrived with a new shaving head for my dog clipper, so I shaved my dog which was satisfying (I've left all the shaved fur on the hall carpet for husband to clean :p - its literally about 1 inch thick over the entire carpet, she was VERY fluffy) I have then walked the dog again. I really need to get on with work!
