Glutton for Punishment

As some of you may know, this is my last semester of graduate school (unless, of course, I decide to apply to a PhD program at some point…). One would think that, having fulfilled all of my degree requirements, that I would register for some light, fluffy class for my last semester.

One would be mistaken.

I decided to take Research Methods.

Having noted my reading and homework assignments for the week on my friendly wet-erase board that lives next to my calendar, I realize that there is no room for anything else on the board.

One week’s worth of work has filled the entire board.

But, hey, at least I know I’m going to learn something useful…



You make something from things that have happened and from things that exist and from all things that you know and all those you cannot know, and you make something through your invention that is truer than anything true and alive, and if you make it well enough, you give it immortality.

Ernest Hemingway
