I found myself some new teachers today. And I didn’t even have to pay a tuition fee!
Professor Scott Long teaches Sociology and Statistics in Indiana University; and I saw in his blog that he also dabbles in activism. Looking at his university’s website and the curriculum he teaches just gave me a headache. Regression models. Data analysis. Statistical research. Gender Differences in the Careers of Doctoral Scientists and Engineers.
The problem with being a real student is one has to pay attention; and hence, do some real work. Been there, done that … have drank my share of chinese energy drinks to stay up til 2 am to study for an exam or write a research paper. Which reminds me … I really have to finish my research for my fellowship. Ugggh!!! I hate vegetables!!!
Another interesting find is Kelsey Osgood, a sometime-anorexic, who wrote an article on “I Never Promised You A Rose Garden”, one of my favorite books by sometime-schizophrenic Hannah Green (aka Joanne Greenberg). Osgood’s explorations are about anorexia, something that she personally dabbled on.
I would have to thank Charlie Hebdo’s staff for their deaths because I would not have seen the links for Osgood’s and Professor Long’s pages if I wasn’t reading web articles about some French cartoonists/satirists who were gunned down by Muslim extremists in Paris.
Some website that with an address that looks like this https://medium.com/ @asgharbukhari/charlie-hebdo-this-attack-was-nothing-to-do-with-free-speech-it-was-about-war-26aff1c3e998. When I initially copied/paste the website article’s URL, it wouldn’t appear on my blog so I had to write it longhand. Go figure.
