NF = No Focus

Well, I wouldn't say I am entirely devoid and lacking of focus, but I sure could use some more.

A friend of mine & I were trying to explain the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® to another friend. The two of us doing the explaining both favor the NF functions of iNtuition for perceiving information and Feeling for for making decisions. The friend to whom we were explaining all of this stuff apparently does not favor these two functions because she proceeded to look at us and say

NF...No Focus.

I proceeded to watch my friend literally reach across the table trying to strangle her. But I was laughing....because it was true.

No Phocus...yeah, I keep thinking about possibilities, wondering if I can incorporate more information into this paper. How the hell am I ever going to write a dissertation??

In the spirit of Lemming (who had a good, productive day yesterday):
  • Words written today: 223 since 10AM. *sigh* I've got some work to do.
  • Books & articles on the floor: only 3 books, but tons of articles
  • Box of Tagalongs consumed: 1 since yesterday at 3PM (not just 1 cookie...1 ENTIRE BOX)
At least I'll never have to do this again after tomorrow. Ya know, sometimes I mourn the passing of life events, life hurdles, etc. Not this time. The mental game is over. I'll lose, I'll forfeit, call it the slaughter rule (ah the flashback to playing softball in junior high school)...just lemme off this merry-go-round.

STs are funny creatures.

The second round is harder than the first round - you're tired.

Don't think about the diss now; you still have seven years from the time you pass orals. Get through this - as Annie Lamott says, take it bird by bird.

( I've got 14 months.)

Thanks for the tips, Lemming. Very helpful.

I would have DIED EARLY were it not for some of my ST friends to set me back on track. You know who you are, if you're reading this. :-)
