Thread: What's on your mind ?

  1. #211
    I was supposed to be finishing my Masters this year, but the pandemic has turned things upside down. We're still getting reading lists mailed to us, so there's that. Paying attention has been the problem. Too many distractions and some anxiety are not helping either. For instance, for our introductory course on research methodologies, there's supposed to be a module on quantitative methods and reasoning. Not my cup of tea at all. This Monday we received a mail with some 101 readings on z-scores in statistics, and I have no motivation to take on this one. It feels like I should have known a little bit about this prior to this class. It's got me thinking about doing something purely qualitative for my thesis. Not sure if my advisor would agree to that, though.

    I know, I gotta just suck it up and put my mind to it to try and understand it as best as I can -- that's the first step, then assess my preliminary understand, and so and so forth. Thanks for the luck!

    If you're talking about the current situation, pretty much, yeah.

    Actiually overheard somsone say "aren't we supposed to be beyond this sort of stuff?" the other day.
