NaNo Complete  
I finished my bird census assessment in good time. I did my seminar report the day before it was due.

I finished NaNo WriMo. I don't feel very accomplished. Maybe next year I will, if I do and finish it. Not doing non-fiction again. NaNoWriMo, for me, will always be fiction.

My poster is due tomorrow. I still have so much to do on it. I'm still in the gathering-information stage. Then I will be onto organising it into sections, creating a pretty and efficient design, printing and creating, doing handouts if I want...

I know I've done these too many times before. And I've always procrastinated them, too. I just finished NaNo WriMo on the part of my freshman year in which I was procrastinating on all my springlettes (projects a lot like all these) and doing/feeling pretty fine. Besides depression about not being able to walk, I mean, quite fine. And somehow cheery in my own cynical way.

I hate the feeling of terror I get at the end of the term.

These next 2 weeks will be the death of me. But then, 16 days from now, I will be home. I need to get to there. I need to.

I wish I felt accomplished. For any of this. I hope I will 11 days from now, when I have finished my final thing for the term and go off to meditation retreat weekend.

At least I can come back to livejournal soon.

You certainly ought to feel accomplished!! You've completed an amazing amount of work, and you've retained your sanity / good humor, and you're still standing, still working. I'm impressed.

Thank you. Not so sure about the retaining sanity - humour I'd hope, given when I lose that I drop considerably! Still standing. Less on the working. Trying to. I know I'll always get it done before the deadline, but I'd like to keep working on things early. It doesn't seem to be working this last week before the end of term. I'm going to explode! Again!

I certainly do hope I start 'feeling it' soon. Happy and proud and accomplished. 6 days and it's over. Feels like one steep mountain!

*I* am proud, and you will survive the next two weeks. Obv. you have discipline, or you wouldn't have finished NaNoWriMo. Just keep moving forward.
