After working steadily on a bit of work that is due later this week, I spent some time tonight playing around with some data that I hope to use in an upcoming conference proposal. While I enjoy tinkering with data, I learned through my project last semester that great research takes commitment, but even research that is not great can take a lot of time and energy. Thus, I am having to remember to check myself every now and again to make sure that I haven't made any mistakes or wrong assumptions. Realizing that you've spent hours on something that was thrown off several steps ago is pretty unpleasant.
I guess that's good advice for more than just statistical work: check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Something that made today great: A running adventure through some new areas! I wouldn't necessarily return to all of them, but it was nice to switch my route up a bit.
Time I woke up: 9:15 am
