I have been sitting at my computer off and on for several days completing modules about research. My brain hurts, and I REALLY want to whine and complain. Even though it is spring break, I am still working on school work. Why? Because I am so far behind that I feel as though I am never going to finish this semester. I would look up motivational memes on the internet, but I lack the motivation. I am so under motivated that I need someone else to find motivational memes on Google. I am frustrated, exasperated, and exhausted. Fortunately, none of these conditions has impacted my ability to whine.
My husband came in to check on me, and I had been staring at the same sentence for ten minutes. When he asked me what I was doing, all I could think to say was, “Nothing.” Mostly, because it was true.Is it normal to feel so downtrodden reading about the ethics of human research? Luckily, I am almost at the end point of the research modules, but the semester is barely half over. Maybe I should create a calendar marking off the days left in the semester, but that would require motivation….
