All of my coursework (2 big essays) for this semester is due in on Monday. I've written about this before, but I find it very difficult not to get overwhelmed by how much I have to say and often find myself so anxious about this that I don't end up saying anything at all. I spent all day, more or less, yesterday making a mind map for the first essay. Now I'm trying to turn that into a linear argument, focusing on just a little bit at a time. I think that getting all the craziness out of my head into something visual is helping with avoiding that overwhelmed can't think straight feeling. I'm also constantly reminding myself that writing is an editing process and that, in order to do that I need something to edit. I'll be back to blogging more next week, once these are all handed in. Can't wait for that. Sigh.
For now, here are some little bits of my new home.
I'm so excited to be done with the school work and to play with my new flat. I'll see you next week, when hopefully I'll be a little less stressed and a little more coherent :)
