"Today, while the blossom still clings onto the vine..."

That's the first line to a song. You know, following from yesterday's post, Tomorrow?

Ahem. Anyway.

Today's ToDo does not look very enticing. I've decided that since I have no meetings, I will go into the office, spend a few hours doing work-work, then have lunch, and then stay in the office to dissertate.

I have never done that before.

I'm used it dissertating at home, around the dining room, in the living room, even in the tea/coffee shops around.

I don't know why I'm doing it. Probably because I need a change in environment. Probably because I'm trying to "integrate" research into my "daily work" life.

Sigh. (Will another day be wasted?)

More updates later below these three dashes.

Guess how many hours of dissertating I did?

If you guessed zero, you're right.

You are right! Changing the environment may change the mood. Sometimes I can't read or write anything on the same desk in my room everyday. It becomes bland.

Such days come to us all (I've had a few of my own this week...).

And when such days come, I invoke the Scarlett O'Hara philosophy:

Tomorrow is another day!
