Hurry up and Wait


“A phrase commonly found in the military” that “depicts the day-to-day grind of soldiers where they have to “hurry up” to point B only to have to wait hours for the event to occur.”

This phrase just about sums up my week. Why haven’t I posted on here for a while? Well, I’ve been doing the ‘hurrying up’ part. Don’t get me wrong, I love a deadline. Several abstract deadlines for conference papers (that all happened to be on the same date) and writing a paper for a forthcoming journal. Not to mention working with my publisher on the next stage of getting my book published! … It’s all really good stuff. I’m definitely not complaining. Really, I’m not. I just hate the ‘waiting’ part. And…


Is it wine o’clock yet?
