An update from my last post: I got my computer back. They fixed the apparent viruses that were making it blue-screen, but there's still a problem with the update manager and therefore I need to back up everything and take it back to them so they can restore it to factory default settings. But I've been putting that off because 1) I'm afraid I will screw up backing up my computer and I'll lose everything, and 2) I don't want to deal with putting everything back on my computer because I'll probably screw that up too. I'll get to it eventually. Maybe after quals.
Speaking of quals, I managed to get my Specific Aims turned in and they were approved. Now I have to write the research strategy which is a brilliant work of copying and pasting stuff from my last grant. I will be happy when it is over.
Speaking of things that are over, I finished data collection for my project this week! No more looking at videos of people's knees for me...until the reliability analysis.
In other news, Boston got a ton of snow in the last week. There was one day that nobody was allowed to go anywhere (which was miserable), and two days that I had classes canceled. When it hasn't been snowing, it has been spectacularly cold. Today is a spectacularly cold day, which is part of why I'm at home blogging rather than outside of my house.
|This is how cold it is.|
I have some other things that are bubbling in my life, but they're not quite blogable yet. Stay tuned!
