Well, I learned one thing on the first day of this exercise: my brain is perfectly capable of outfoxing me.
"I have to finish one project at a time? Fine. Guess what, sweetcheeks? I don't have to finish what I don't start."
Oh. Also there was the mid-afternoon meltdown.
(Which occurred because, despite having a degree in English Lit, I am not capable of writing a 5 page paper. Any evidence to the contrary has been a complete fluke. Monkeys at typewriters, hammering out Hamlet. Ergo, I cannot sit down and write the whole paper, because if I sit down with that intention I will be trapped in the Chair of Failure forever. No paper will be forthcoming. Only the horrendous taunting of a blank screen.)
