First it was the presentation (of which I still need to submit the final copy).
Now it’s this conference.
There is always something taking up time and drawing my attention away.
So I booked my flights and my accomodation. I have four days off in a row which means I can write the paper I’ll deliver. Following this, I’ll have a meeting with one of my Supervisors, a meeting with the lady who’s job I’ll be taking over, and notice from the Ethics Board and the State Library.
Ideally, all of this will occur in the next fortnight, leaving at least half of this month with which to actually study for my PhD.
I think that seems to be the key. Provided I can leave two weeks out of every four to work, that should be enough time to get things done.
But for now, off to learn a few basic phrases in Manadarin!
