slow news week
The inevitable falling off the blog wagon happened even earlier than I had expected. Alas, I am BACK. Unfortunately, most of my hiatus was motivated by the complete lack of content my life has recently provided. Nothing overtly entertaining.
The most exciting moment of this week highlights the general awkwardness my area of study is set to bring into my daily life: I am doing research on the national health goal of reducing the percentage of unplanned pregnancies this month. When I was in the doctor's office this week, I noticed brochures on emergency contraception, early pregnancy care, and a card of resources seemingly aimed at surprised pregnant women and picked them up for this project. I dumped them on my coffee table at home with all my other literature on prenatal care, etc etc. I came home yesterday afternoon and noticed a note from my landlord set right next to them, as she had been in to check on my radiator. It was signed with an addendum at the end, "let me know if you ever need anything, or want to talk." Another successful encounter, since she surely thinks I'm pregnant now. And, of course, there is never a good time to attempt to correct her.
