This week was truly dreadful for fieldwork. I should have had six appointments. I completed one. Three were postponed, two never even got scheduled. It's now vacation time, and these five will have to be compressed into the post-vacation week. It will be a nightmare to schedule with participants on vacation, which likely means more postponing. All of this is super stressful for me, and means I will likely be unable to enjoy the vacation despite my efforts to just hope for the best. Why did I ever sign up for this? Why did anyone tell me it was a good idea? Why wasn't I warned how stressful it would be? Or is it all my fault for trying to do something different?
