Steadily onward...

Okay, so I don't have long before I leave for New York. One week, to be exact. And, to be honest, I can't say I'm too stressed about the move. Besides, I have plenty to worry about before leaving.

On the top of that list is my thesis. Yeah, I have one more shot at revision, but there seems to be a lot left to do. After that, it's over and done with, but it also means I have a week to do it in. Officially, it's not due till mid August, but I really don't want to have the thesis on my mind once I'm already in New York. So tonight, I fully intend to stay up and pound out a buch of work. That's what IHOP is for, right?

I've often been criticized for my penchant for all-nighters. Sure, it's not the most intelligent option, but it works for me somehow. Maybe it's the aesthetic I like... the student hard at work, long into the wee hours, high on coffee and academic idealism. Or maybe I just like the food at IHOP. At any rate, many of those who frown on my late night habit believe it contributes to my health problems. Frankly, they're probably right. But hey... old habits die hard, or not at all. This definitely qualifies as an old habit. Let's hope it proves worth my while tonight.
