Repeat Friday

I'm a bit late on Tammy's Friday no-frills prompt, repeat - I left my camera at my workplace and didn't get a chance to pick it up till today. But to be honest, I could really have taken these pictures of repeating patterns any other day in the last few weeks, or the next few weeks, for that matter, because my life is in what seems to be a continuously repeating loop.

Mostly revolving around writing a series of papers, carefully filed and brought to and from school in this folder, a constant companion:

and sorting through filing cabinets full of scientific papers and collected data:


and it all comes down to this, for the next few weeks. Despite the rather bleak and institutional look of the pictures, they're truthful,and the process, while stressful, is also strangely satisfying, and more importantly,  finite.

ha, thanks - though I can't lay claim to the idea, I got it from the inestimable Franklin Habit: http://the-panopticon.blogspot.com/2010/10/been-there-done-that-made-t-shirt.html
