The Pre-Vacation Push

The last few days have been pretty gruelling ones. I’ve done a huge push over the last week to wrap up all my pending projects so that I can jet off to Scotland and be in total vacation mode, knowing that all my various academic projects are wrapped. To that end, I reread/edited/revised all 300+ pages of my monograph to get it ready to send to a new publishing house, finally finished my article on elite women and anger (and shipped it off to a journal for publication consideration), and finished my paper for November’s upcoming North American Conference on British Studies. I’m exhausted but so happy to be work free for at least the next month or even two!

You are a far more disciplined writer than I will ever be, and I admire the way you push through to get projects finished - there is never a time I don't have some writing or other handing over my head, needing to be finished. Must work on that. Safe travels!

I think it's very commendable that you've managed to get all that done in exchange for a vacation where you don't have to think about work at all. Sometimes I can barely manage to do that for a single weekend.
This dress is really cute - wish I could see the shoes!
