I know it is time for break when I check, re-check, and check for a third time my word count and see the same four-digit number pop up. 2,095, in case you were wondering. I would like to take a REAL break, the types of breaks people take when they are not in grad school (like watch TV or read a book or take a nap). Instead, I will clean my kitchen and bathroom and take a minute to organize my desk. I will then take a deep breath, wrap up this paper with 400 words of a conclusion, then call it a night. My iPod will help the tediousness of cleaning, though, so it won't be the worst break ever.
