The end of this semester really wouldn't be too bad except for these two grant applications I have to finish by Friday when I must relinquish my iBook to AppleCare for a few days to fix some problems before my AppleCare expires. I am finished with teaching, grading, attending classes, papers, and presentations. I still have a TON of homework to do for Population Ecology but it's these grants I'm worried about. I'm agonizing over the budget and especially the experimental design. Tomorrow I'm having a meeting with Herb to discuss my project and I hope it will help. I feel like I'm not making quick progress because I don't have clarity about my project. There are so many things up in the air. I don't even know for sure where I'll be doing field work this summer. Ai!
On the bright side, I am going to send my review paper to Taxonomically Specific Journal after I get this other stuff finished.
