now i can actually get stuff done- or at least not have an excuse to not get it done. matt is sleeping. he would call me such nerd if he ever saw this even though it is just like a little notebook that is accessible wherever...he will probably see it sometime since i accidently put it on the bookmark bar instead of in the drop-down menu.
other...i realized that i am just injexting way too much info without really sifting through it- that is why my first assignment was such a disaster- not many could explicate their concpet in such a way as to only make it more confusing and less defined but i managed to be that person.
it is kind of freeing to be totally out of the running for superstar status. my class hasn't really defined the stars/smartypants yet and there is
other...authorless environment- i agree that it is coming...again is ture enough but i think that with such a producer/creator/interactor culture that the self will become the referent point for credibility and judgement- merits of the text will be interpreted in that way, not to some larger text standard.
in as much as you can see some part of yourself or your point of view (opinions, etc) then it will be in the accepted range.
school is drving me crazy. too much work, not enough people worth collaborating with. my 8001 group is so smart i just wish that we all directed our thoughts in the same way. yeah yeah good stuff in other viewpoints, but working on a semester project with people who totally interpret articles nad theories differently does not a good experiment make. i have a feeling they think the same. hopefully stuff will get all figured out there.
8501- you'd think phd students would be so much mroe together and on top of everything- i am the lowly 1st year masters and i feel like i am doing way too much of the reading, etc. maybe they have just figured out the info overload/vomiting it all up and its all mixed an none of it makes any sense or is even worth trying to salvage.
