This, of course, is the danger of the blog: that I will post nonsensical and minimally relevant musings in my down time here at the center.
To at least maintain some semblance of relevance: I am actually a bit further along than I thought I was on my research paper. I spent several hours last night agonizing over the writing of a few more pages of my results/discussion type sections. Unfortunately, it seems that the surveys ended up demolishing more of my hypotheses than they supported. But oh well, I suppose it just gives me more to talk about when I discuss the limitations of my study and some suggestions for future research. The biggest wrinkle for me, then, is figuring out what I'm going to do for the presentation on Tuesday. I've been thinking that I'd like to do a PowerPoint presentation, but, given that I've never worked with that program before, it could end up being one big ass train wreck. I guess you'll all have to wait and see. I hope that your research papers are going well, despite all the procrastination that I seem to sense (myself included).
More words from some folks from Montreal:
"Children: wake up!
Hold your mistake up!
(Before they turn the summer into dust)
With my lightning bolts a-glowin'
I can see where I am going...
YOU BETTER LOOK OUT BELOW!!!"
By the way, does anyone have any great topics on which I could write a fantastic research paper for an international political economy course?
Suggestions are welcome, though I've already considered debt forgiveness and structural adjustment plans. Seems a bit vague, though, no?
Clearly, the usefulness of this blog entry has long since worn out. Feel free to refer to several of my earlier entries if relevance and insight are your thing.
As an endnote, I find it hilarious that the ranting man by the name of Blaise Bailey Finnegan III on several of GY!BE's recordings reads a "poem" he wrote, which, in fact, is a nearly verbatim rendition of an Iron Maiden song (entitled "Virus," I believe), the lyrics of which were written by their ill-fated and awful temporary vocalist Blaze Bayley.
Perhaps you don't find it so hilarious, but what do you know?
I'll not be judged by a computer screen, nor even by that incessantly blinking cursor.
Try as you may, you'll not bring me down.
