Job applications, dissertations and bribery

This morning, I depart on the somewhat disembodied (digital) adventure into quite why all I can hear on my bushbaby recordings (at the beginning of summer, I went to Tanzania, recorded visually and acoustically my little subjects, come home, to put a much longer and more exciting (involving hyenas) story, short) is wind. Similarly I have promised myself that today I apply to two jobs. Not one but TWO career paths, stretching ahead of me, which today, this very day I WILL APPLY FOR…I tell myself.

I wish I knew that secret - knowing quite how to bribe yourself into being motivated - ie. one trip to zoo = one finished dissertation etc. I wish I had the money to promise myself zoo trips for every job application or every file I analyse in Raven (this nifty ornithology-lab-created programme, made by Cornell and happily, bushbaby applicable). 

Thus far, my bribery has extended to cups of tea. 

Only problem is one cup of tea = one analyse file = 40 million cups of tea for my mother, having seen me ‘near the kettle’. Mmmm…one file analysed = one trip planned?! Gonna be touring hard after my diss is finished, if it’s one trip per file, but HEY, a girl can plan! 

New bribery in, old bribery out (although, obviously I will remain drinking tea on a semi-perpetual basis) - careers, travels, and otolemur vocalisations here I come.
