This Open Thread is Going to the Ducks

Yes, ducks. Who doesn’t love ducks?

Ducks in a CVS!

Ducks crossing a road!

A duckling who’s OMG SO HAPPY TO SEE YOU!

Let me love you!

Alright, enough ducking around. Tell me about your week.

oh wow that last gif is the cutest!!!

I am officially back on the internet after what amounted to pretty much a 6 week hiatus for traveling (plus spotty access all summer) and now applying for jobs & writing my grad school apps. That amounts to a lot of down time and a lot of stress surrounding “I *SHOULD* be doing things but I am not aughhasdjahg;ansdflj”

plus I am living at home which though wonderful is not doing a lot for my sense of forward motion

How is everyone else??

That was a good idea & where I am at the moment! I’m being productive (sort of) but not on my grad school apps. Ugh. I think it’s just such a huge thing that I’m psyching myself out of actually working on them (and, whenever I write something, I self-edit it out of existence). Thanks for the advice: hopefully I can get some stuff done today.
