Getting Over a Slump

If you’re wondering why I keep coming back to my blog on an almost daily basis, it’s because I’ve been using it as an accountability tool. Honestly, it helps. I don’t know if anyone else has felt the same way, but the past few days, I think quarantine hit extra hard. Or maybe I’m just in a slump. So, using this blog as an accountability tool, I’m going to blog about my (hopefully productive) day. Per usual, you guys get a to-do list, except it’s going to be in order of priority.

  1. Continuity Care paperwork
  2. Make a Zelle
  3. do 4 reports
  4. Exercise
  5. sort reports by date
  6. Confirm that the essay and stipend were received

Here’s the thing. My schedule today consists of clerical tasks. Things like organization. Sorting papers. Creating accounts. I enjoy working without necessarily organizing that work, so my desk ends up looking like this:

pinterest goals! 10/10 cleanliness! marie kondo would be jealous!

Update: this is future Vera. I turned in my paperwork. I made the Zelle. It took all of 30 minutes. I’ve been putting off the Zelle thing since Friday (for those wondering, a Zelle is basically a PayPal), so I’m glad it got done.

Update from future Vera: It is now 9 pm. I did an exercise video by Sydney Cummings, thereby crossing off #4 on the list. I left spontaneously for a fun outing, which is why I have done zero reports. You read that right: zero! I want to see how many reports I will get done in the next hour. Keep in mind that it’s night time. Granted, it may just be one or two, but that’s not nothing. I had a lovely day. My grandparents came by in the evening and I talked with my friend as well.

Alright, it’s the next morning now. I ended up going to sleep at almost midnight last night, but I’m proud of myself because I finished three reports. I ended up doing 4/6 of my tasks– a decent start to a productive week.

Hi everyone! I started my doctorate in clinical psychology in fall 2020. A google search revealed that there are no current grad school blogs for psychology students. Anyway, I happen to know a girl who wants to document her journey to getting a doctorate (spoiler: it's me). Welcome. Hope you stay awhile!
