So, I'm sure my to-do list is going to be thoroughly boring for you guys - but I need to get this out of my head and onto paper, on the theory that it might make me feel marginally better about the amount of stuff I have to do.

By this Friday, April 23:
Prepare for Passover and make Seders (unless I go home - though that's a different kind of stress)

By next Friday, April 30:
10-page paper for literary theory class about games and narrative
Prepare abstract for Bryn's RPG anthology

By the Friday after that, May 6:
Prepare talk for MIT conference
Write full text of paper for MIT conference publication

By the following Monday, May 9:
15-page paper on cognitive theories of learning
Paper of as-yet-unknown length on "radical play" and social theory
Playable (i.e. probably 10-15 page, playtested) version of Wiped! (the role-playing game of . . . wait, what's going on?), with possible extension to Friday, May 13

By Friday, May 20:
30,000 (paid!) words on the RPG-book project

Currently, I'm trying to keep my head above water in my classes while writing the literary theory paper (which I thought had to be 20 pages - just 10 pages is good news!). If I can get that done by the end of the week, or get a draft of that and some research done on my social theory paper, I'll be in much better shape. So far I'm 3 hard-won pages in, and what I've written doesn't make much sense, but at least I've got plenty of ideas left and am going strong. Maybe I can get another two pages done tonight.

If only I didn't want to procrastinate so much . . . .
