Falling Behind
by Elizabeth Scheibl

December 1, 2003

I'm stuck! I'm having trouble choosing which video to analyze for my next entry, and I've come to an impasse -- I just can't seem to move on. I have two decent videos to choose from and each is good in its own way. I can't seem to make a decision about which one to use. I had my friend and colleague look them over and she made her choice, but I'm still up in the air about it. I guess I'll have someone else view them and see what happens. Two out of three gets the vote!

In addition to my video dilemma, I'm just generally progressing slowly. I haven't had the time to put into the process lately and, consequently, I feel as though I'm falling way behind schedule. I need to focus and get back on track. It's hard to believe that everything is due in February. I worry; if this entry is taking so long what will the next one be like?
