... are pretty much all you're going to get me to talk about 'til Wednesay. *chinhands*

(Here is a thing: because I do the staggeringly stereotypical Thing where I find it quite hard to organise large volumes of complex information into a structure that makes sense to anyone who isn't me, Supervisor has me doing a series of writing exercises - 2 pages + a diagram on a topic relevant to my thesis, to potentially be eventually incorporated. First one due Weds; I requested it be on the thing I was already perseverating about, viz, mantle sulphides. So, er, now the first document I'm prepping as a thing I was already a bit scared of... is also an attempt to persuade my supervisor that there's mileage in this idea I've had, and she wants to go to the effort of sourcing me samples to actually do the reconnaisance study. You know I keep muttering about being stressed about work despite really enjoying it? Yeah.)

Okay, on some level i already knew this (it's part of what helped me figure out i'm autistic) but yeah, GRARRRRGH. Ruining.my.life.

My "12,000 words" Honours thesis? Was actually closer to 35,000 taking into account the appendices (but not the 5,000 words of references). /o\

This was me last week: http://shehasathree.dreamwidth.org/2906583.html

Sometimes it is very difficult to organise information into a structure that makes sense to others, as your brain has all sorts of associations it has created that may not be understandable to other people, but are crystal clear to you because of the associative thinking you have. At least that is the case for me.

That deserves a longer answer than the 2000-character limit of a comment, and I've posted it on my own journal, rather than hijacking [personal profile] kaberett's.:

Yeah, I'm like the poster child for this, lately. No one can understand how I like my job when it's making me as stressed as it is. :)

Is there any chance that the two-pages-and-diagram will be understandable by a layperson with interest but little formal background in geology or chemistry?
