Things I did today instead of writing my grad school personal statement

  1. Did the NY Times Crossword
    I love the app.
  2. Sat at a coffee shop acting like I was going to write my personal statement.
    The latte and the pumpkin muffin were very good. I should probably withhold food from myself until I get at least a couple of paragraphs.
  3. Took a nap.
    I write better well-rested.
  4. Chatted on the phone with my best friend.
    She called me, okay? That's not my fault.
  5. Read some pieces by a professor I'd like to work with.
    At least this is productive procrastination.
  6. I hate writing about myself.
