i was thinking and…

  I literally just got done reading “Easier Said than Done: Writing an Autoethnography” by Sarah Walls. It was an interesting read for sure, but it brought me back to my worries about what I am pursuing for this thesis. I couldn’t help but think back to a conversation that I had with my boss […]

Not My Intro

If you could have a conversation with a loved one that has passed, what would you say? Better yet, what would they say? I’m not certain this question is at the heart of my thesis, but I like it. It’s something, perhaps, I could ask myself about my grandmother, too. She died when I was […]

Conversations with My Father

So, after a list of about 15-20 “working titles,” the one that seems to stick best is simply, “Conversations with My Father.”  Perhaps a subtitle is in order, too, but it’s how I find myself referring to my project in my mind.  That’s what it is, in a nutshell.  I like the simplicity of the […]

Evernote library

I scrapped all of the research for my old idea– see “Trash (33),” and reformatted my folders and tags to fit my new thesis. It’s been quite helpful!

in and out.

I am kind of stagnant right now and I don’t like it. I feel like I don’t know how to get myself situated again amidst everything that has been going on. It sucks that my time can’t be dedicated to thesis work alone as I still have to adhere to requirements for elective courses. I […]

Nostalgia

Progress….. OER 18 proposal has been submitted.  Check! Proposal (Final 250 words) Registered for Spring Thesis Seminar….last class for my thesis completion!!!  Check! This Thanksgiving was particularly nostalgic for me.  I got lost in hours of home videos.  For my own ease of reference, I’ve linked them below.  I realize I often make comments about […]

Ideas!

I’m moving again, and I’m happy about it! I don’t particularly want to take much time blogging now, because my limited time needs to be spent researching, but an update is in order.In the past week, I’ve spoken with a professor from my undergrad, as we…

I’m still here.

How do you write a thesis with no idea of what you want to write about? I’m floundering and I don’t see any end to this struggle. If I graduate this program, it might be a miracle.I’m scrapping all the work I have done up to this point because I’m no l…

Scalar

Scalar is a curious little program.  There are some cool features such as the “choose your path option,” but it took a long time for me to get the hang of it and I hit a few roadblocks which, thankfully I was able to around (eventually).  The site doesn’t allow large images so I ended up using […]

put down your cigarette rag

I wanted to reread “Kaddish” today, and then when I finished, I wanted to hear it read by Allen himself. I know I’ve heard a recording of it before by him, but the one I was listening to just wasn’t doing it a lot of justice. I have it in the back of my mind …
