Serious Business, Dude.

Oh Hi there!  I’m just taking a minute, poking my head through the surface of the tidal wave of papers that have become my continued surroundings over the last few days, to tell you why I’ve been kind of absent this week.

Well, it’s like this: there are some times in your life when you have to stop the fun stuff for a second and be responsible. Truth is that I’ve been working like crazy these past few days finishing the first draft of my Master thesis proposal, having left it to the last minute of course. Well that’s not exactly true, I’ve had a few days to work on it but I really should have spent a bit more time on it. It’s nowhere near perfect yet but that’s what first drafts are for, right?

But, this first draft is only the first hurdle in a long line of stuff that has to get done in the last couple of weeks. You know how it is, you start a class and everything is fine and you do your reading and then suddenly 6 weeks have past and the deadline for the assignments come closer and suddenly you have to find time in the chaos that is your life to study for your finals. So yea.. that’s me right now.

Good news is that I do have a great topic for  my thesis. It has to do with adolescents and which strategy is best for that age group to get them to learn. I promise it’s more complicated than that and there’s loads of literature and theories behind it but right now I don’t have enough energy to translate it from Dutch at length. I’m still debating if I should write my thesis in English (I probably will.. ) and if I do, I may post a bit of it on here to see what y’all think.

Anyway, so that’s why I haven’t been blogging this week. Eugh priorities. Don’t you hate them? However, I do have a couple of things lined up; I’ve nearly finished reading ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, a movie review on ‘Sinister’ and I’ve also started reading ‘An Abundance of Katherines’ so I will probably finish that pretty soon as well.

Argh. Literature.

    1. Write a book? Me?! Haha that idea is so.. improbable 😛 Not that I don’t want to. Man, I’d really like to. Who knows? Going to have to take it step by step though.. see if I can get a paper published on this study, see if I can get the opportunity to get a Phd.. I’ll just have to see where it all goes. Thank you, though!
