Academic Itch

This weekend was my housewarming party, to which many lovely people came – thanks to everyone for making it awesome and, well, warming. Helped Nathan load some stuff into Libby’s apartment (she arrives Wednesday, hooray!), cleaned, caught up with friends I hadn’t seen in awhile (Coral and Kristen specifically), ran lights for The White Show, played human statue, went on a picnic, listened to Gregorian Chant, and read a fair amount. I am finally getting up to the level of involvement that I enjoy, which has brought up an interesting set for me to work on this week.

1. I want a second job, for only 2 or 3 nights a week, in order to supplement income and occupy time and
2. I want to start researching an academic paper.

Yes, apparently the Crazy of the undergraduate thesis has faded enough to entertain this notion. But I miss researching. I miss having a point to my studies, the enforced motivation. So I’m going to start doing it on my own. I know I want to write on sexuality or technology, most likely on both. Possibly constructing and presenting sexuality online in relation to IRL identity. We’ll see how the literature review goes first, and how taking on the Washington Review Board of Human Subjects Committee goes (guh).

I am having a blast and I love this city more and more with every step I take in it.

    for under 300$ you can get a refurbished laptop at Compgeeks, An Asus EeePC at Newegg. I’m looking at getting a Dell Vostro 1400, which looks to be a really decent balance of affordability, weight and perfomance. The refurbs won’t have any warantee and are slightly likelier to be of iffy quality, the Asus EeePC has a small keyboard, and will not run as fast as other machines… What OS do you want to run?

  2. I’m so sorry we didn’t come. By the time we would have gotten there you guys would have already left for the Noknok. Forgive me?
