The past two weeks, I have put off reading for my Thursday class until Wednesday night, and that has not been a good plan for me. Deep down, I know that I should space my reading out over the week, but I have allowed myself to fall back on the excuse of, "I've been working hard, so I deserve the night off." Basically, I always think I deserve the night off, but there just aren't enough hours in the week for that to happen every single night. Also, I sometimes end up having to cram too much reading into too short of a space of time, and that is stressful.
I'm plugging along this week, including reading a riveting chapter of Confirmatory Factor Analysis for Applied Research, which is actually quite interesting after I take the time to break the concepts down into little bitty pieces. Tomorrow, I will be parsing out a chapter of another book for my structural equation modeling class, but it's better to have one chapter than two!
Speaking of itty bitty pieces, when I searched for a photo today, I entered several queries into Pixabay, including "breakdown pieces," "parse," and "parsimony." The last two searches yielded photos of persimmons, so here are some persimmons.
Something that made today great: Blake and I sent our finance paper to a journal for review!
Time I woke up: 8:15 am
