I guess I do work better at coffee shops, even when there is a lot going on around. Maybe I won't get a carrel in the library for the fall, this is much better than my office or the library, because I can eat, drink coffee, write and listen to music all at the same time. Also, having a study buddy does help, even though A. didn't show until about an hour before I left. Still, I got a good chunk of research done on the T1 paper, and a good bit of writing done on the coauthor paper today. I need to make this kind of progress for the rest of this week in order to make my September 1 deadline.
