As I am trying to graduate this May, I am setting monthly goals for myself. And by "goals", I really mean "If I don't get this certain thing done this month, I am screwing myself and won't be able to graduate".
For September, I just need to:
- Present data at lab meeting from field study in Costa Rica (collected by others). Figure out how we're going to write the paper and how much of it I am actually responsible for.
- Finish collecting data and analyzing data from Experiment 1a and Experiment 1b.
- Get a draft of the paper for Experiments 1a & 1b to advisor.
- Finish getting replicates for Experiment 2.
