Here's how I spend my Friday nights these days

Are you jealous?

I mean, I realize hanging out with friends... or maybe even your spouse, going out to eat, seeing a's all very fun and exciting. But really, it can't compare to writing about, say, administrative procedures and the political control of bureaucracy, or even corporate political expenditures and the signals its sends the American public bureaucracy.

...any takers??

I'm starting to keep track of time by assignment due dates. 
"Is today the 14th?" someone asks at the office today.
"Why yes it is," I think to myself. "Cause today is the day my lit review is due...that I haven't started yet."

"What's the date next Monday?" I"m asked.
"The 17th." I reply without pause. "...Cause that's the day my video analysis is due," I think to myself.

At least I can say the homework timeline I made, hung up at my desk, on my mirror, and on the front of my binder, so I don't forget about anything is serving it's purpose.

Is it December yet?
