Over the course of college and grad school, I’ve found that the more important and intensive the research project, the more intensely I throw myself into other activities in the pauses. When I need a break, I need a really good break.
I read a truly unreasonable amount of fiction (granted, with all the practice, I read fast, but still.)
Sometimes I take up running. Briefly.
This week, I wrapped all my Christmas presents to take home, sewed most of my garb for Raglan 2016, and took up the production of sea glass sun catchers.
