grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

knit me more time...
Friday, August 20, 2004

So, I guess I will survive this funding incident which seemed more like a crisis to me than I guess it really was. I'll just trust that it will work out and try not to stress about it. Its a long story- I'll explain less cryptically to those I'll see soon. But, nothing kills a week like thinking you might not have funding. And I still usually get loan money around this time of the summer, so I have to figure out a way to get through until everything is worked out. I got a "big improvement, nice draft" on my last thesis draft. Whew. I didn't expect to go over it all with my advisor yesterday, but we did and I see what needs to be done with it now which means the gears are already turning in my head. The stats in my thesis continue to suck. I either have to find someone (grad student) willing to sit down with me about go over all my stats or my advisor said she would do so. What amazes me is how good I was in stats back at SUNY Stony Brook. It seemed to come so natural to me. I don't know what happened. Should I follow her advice of taking stats course again and again until I get an A? I'd really rather go for 3 more root canals, but it logically does sound like very sound advice indeed. And our friend Linda comes to visit tonight from NY. I am so excited to see someone from back home! And I am even more so looking forward to Jony's visit at the end of the month. But, the work never really stops. I have another thesis draft to work on, and oh, a prelim to study for. I think I have decided that I will probably fail a prelim once. Its just bound to happen- I tanked the GRE the first time. I also have realized I am taking stats this fall- and now I am rethinking that a little bit. And I have a book review that is unwritten (and the book is mostly unread).
