Again With the Crafty Procrastinating
Each week there are precious few moments left where I can work on my own research and writing.
I treasure those moments.
In order to be as productive and time efficient as possible it is important to make my environment as conducive to scholarlyness as possible.
I make a pot of tea.
I put on the soundtrack to Waking Life (excellent writing music by the way).
I curl up on the couch with my blanket, books, pens, post-it-notes, journal, and laptop.

KNIT FOR WORLD PEACE campaign.
And then I'll probably end up like this:
For any and all who, in their search for more creative ways to procrastinate (and have already washed your entire collection of tea canisters) I heartily recommend you give knitting a go.
