I’m taking a bit of a rest at home right now, but tonight, it’s back off to school for me. I already had one class today, and this makes two. Not too bad for one day, but it’s more mind-boggling than anything else that school had begun anew. I know, for the people on the semester system, school is in full swing, and midterms are fast approaching. However, for the quarter system, school is inching forward, but in 10 weeks, things go quickly. It’s scary, really.

On a less stressful note, I was in New York City this weekend. Here’s just a snapshot of what went on.




For the rest of the photos, go over to my flickr.

More on this later, and observations about a cultural no-man’s land. Because I’m too worried about getting to class on time.

A license plate reading AZNJEDI just drove by. Well, I was amused.

Less than a week ’til departure and my nerves are shot to hell. I don’t think I’ll be able to eat on the plane if I’m this nervous this early in the game. Pray for me.

I managed to give myself the worst blisters yesterday. Now I have to take it easy on my feet, so they’ll be up to a New York adventure in a week. Oh, man, I could have seen this coming a mile away, eh?

Do Norms Reduce Torture? (Working Paper)

Trying to figure out what I’m going to do in terms of grad school search when I’m in New York.

Perhaps more to be added later.


emptiness September 13, 2007

Right now, I’m at work, and I feel … rather void. I can’t pinpoint the seat of my distress, but there’s just this overwhelming sensation that something is missing. If I knew what it was, I don’t think this would be a problem, but here I am … wondering.

Things are just changing so fast. I think change makes me uneasy. I get into these funks every now and then, after all, and it’s usually when something big has happened. We’re moving stuff around at the office, so jobs are being redistributed, and I guess I’m just feeling left out. I’m the only student right now. Alas.

Bright spot: I’m going to NYC in two weeks. Master’s shopping, yarn, and musical theatre. How could I resist? I really need to do some research, but hopefully I’ll figure it out. Who knows? After a rushed double major and five years of school, I could be a crazy person, but I can’t see myself in the real world — not yet. In time, perhaps.
