Serious questions

I just can't carry on, baby
Every task seems like an ordeal
The getting out of bed
The drinking the coffee
The walking to work

How does one
Get out of the bed?
Drink the coffee?
Walk to the work?

Cheesy Notes to Myself - Day # 8

9:18 AM: Stun yourself by finishing Discussions, Chapter 3. You pretty little thing.
Failed, and unapolegetically. Drank to my failure. And how.

N.B (Dec 15, 2017): The thesis was a hit! Both reviewers scored it 1 (note 1, excellent, highest possible grade, bow)! Here are some excerpts:

Reviewer 1: 'This work represents an impressive amount of thoroughly assembled data, which contribute significantly to a better understanding of a behavioral circuit and its modulation by sensory input. The thesis is very well written, introductions and discussions are thought stimulating and interesting to read. The result and methods parts are well understandable and documented... Overall this is an excellent thesis, which clearly deserves mark 1. (Note 1, excellent)'.
Reviewer 2: 'Sen’s thesis is a beautifully written account of her PhD research project... Sen has accomplished a substantial amount of high quality work, collaborated with many candidates to enhance her research, and described the work professionally and with clarity. Her PhD was clearly a success and she should be congratulated on the high quality of her research and her writing.'

Needless to say that: therefore, I endorse and highly recommend heavy drinking for any creative endeavor in life. Amen!

I am not a strong woman

I am not a strong woman. I was a woman with a source of strength: my dad. My dad is dead.

I don't have any money

It occured to me that I am running out of money. Like, in a really scary way.
