I'm finding this year hard, but having so much time to just sit and work on my dissertation project is extremely pleasing.
Some people might argue that locking myself away in my living room alone for hours at a time is unhealthy. To these people I have this to say:
"Why are you standing around yakking when you could be fetching me coffee and then going away?"
Ok, so I am becoming the archetypal computer nerd stereotype. On the other hand, it feels good, so I don't care.
