Where in the hell am I?

Yawn redux

Filed under: archaeology, Belize, frustration, thesis — John @ 7:48 am

Okay, I definitely accomplished more today, but it is a constant struggle to try and rectify my notes, field forms and drawings, and photos and make a cohesive and thorough excavation narrative out of them. There are so many gaps in the information that I simply can’t fill, that aren’t crucial but are going to bug me long after this thing is finished.
I want to not care, but this is going to have my name on it and be in the library and probably online. It’s going to be on my resume and future employers may want to take a look at it.
In my field notes (and I think in my old LJ) I spend a lot of time near the end of the project upset and frustrated. Trying to make sense of all the information (and lack thereof) brings all that right back, so I’m basically nodding my head when I read a section where I’m venting or on the verge of a breakdown.
Anyway, I know I’ve learned a lot since then and I can’t do anything about what was done but try and explain what I can and hope I can get away with ignoring the rest. I miss digging in Belize, but I’m sure not going to miss writing about it!
