I think it’s time I start putting a bit more effort into my BEDA entries. Plus, I’m starting a record 4½ hours before midnight! It’s like a miracle or something.
No but seriously, it’s been a long day. I woke up at 6 a.m. and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I hauled my ass out of bed an hour later and got started early.
It was kind of a self-guided workday today, and I got a fair amount done. I contacted some people about interviews (though I’m waiting to hear back from them. I remain cautiously optimistic), and did a bunch of research. I also formulated some questions to ask my interviewees. And apparently I’m way ahead on this? I was kind of freaking out because I thought I was behind, and there was no way I could get this done in time for my deadline a week from now, but I set up a meeting with my prof, Lisa, and she said most people haven’t even picked a viable topic.
So eah, that left me feeling pretty good. And even if these batch of interviewees don’t respond (though I really hope they do, because their blogs are ace, and they strike me as really thoughtful, intelligent people) I can find some others in time.
So yeah, here’s hopeful Nicole, looking forward to an article that will be well-done (I hope). And when it’s finished, I’ll probably post it here as part of a BEDA entry.
Also: Easter coming up. And I have to decide when to go home this weekend. I could do it Thursday night, and have all of Friday at home, but I want to be back in the city on Saturday for a nerdfighter gathering. So, we shall see. Although in all probability that’s what will happen. I’ll just go-train it back here Saturday morning. And then on Sunday, it’s off to Waterloo.
Jeez, I’d kind of forgotten what optimism felt like? It’s pretty nice.
