So I came into town yesterday, to see a friend in a play and spend time with old friends and play a little music. Today will be much of the same, while tomorrow will involve less visiting for fun and more substantive discussion. I'll be meeting with someone I've been interacting with online, about addiction. Then tomorrow evening, I get to see Richard Dawkins at the Wharton Center at MSU.
I am on spring break, but it looks like a fairly packed week for me. I have some time in a friend's woods with a chainsaw lined up, three books to read and a small paper to write, as well as getting the preliminary biblio and my thesis/research questions ready for my gender paper. I am hoping to get the intro and initial outline done as well - we'll see. But I am definitely get a post about our soon to be drug czar up, as well as another addiction post and a gender post. My mind's something of a whirl at the moment and wanting to get some informal writing in this week. I do enjoy the papers, but the style and formality of academic papers is fairly restrictive.
