This is what my task list looks like

Any idea how many fucking things the 1st and 2nd year Ph.D. students have to do? Coursework, conference, publications, quals, endless writing and re-writing of your own stuff until you hate it so much that you don't want to look at it again, ever.

This is what my task list looks like:

Paper #1: lots of rewriting and more research
Paper #2: less rewriting
Paper #3: lots of editions
Presentation #1: cutting 8 pages from an existing paper
Abstract #1: have not started
Abstract #2: have not started
Abstract #3: have not started
Abstract #4: have not started
Abstract #5: have not started
Abstract #6: have not started
Abstract #7: have not started
Abstract #8: have not started
Abstract #9: have not started
...

I'm so under the gun that I just want to eat ten bags of peanuts or twenty cream puffs. OMFG. Maybe I'm in the wrong business.
