Holiday season is great for many things, but I believe research is not one of those things.
Holidays mean more friends available to catch up, better days to stay outside and less people at the office for the same amount of work. These are hardly helpful factors when it comes to arrive home and getting things done with research.
Since I try not to be an easy quitter, I’m trying to balance things but at the end of the day, the effort to sort everything out – the effort to balance – is in itself another disturbing and tiring factor to add up.
But I’ll keep trying.
