Holy crap, I’ve gotten a lot of kind words and encouragement over the last 24 hours. I haven’t been around much today because work was busy and because I have my very last test on Thursday!! Well…I have one more test, but it’s a take home, open book test, so I don’t really count it haha. Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to. If you hear a bottle of champagne loudly opening and see a cloud of smoke from the Raleigh area around 8pm on Thursday night, it’s me celebrating and ceremonially burning 8 months worth of flash cards, haha.
I just wanted to say a quick thank you again and further explain a little more:
I’ve always been a firm believer that you work with what you’ve got. I have always had this instinct when it came to writing research papers or articles for class. It’s why I like writing papers or stories or articles so much. I enjoy gathering information and then telling a story with it. If my idea sounded vague at all, it wasn’t intentional. I simply do not want to commit to definitive statements like “It is going to be like this!” until I read through the first round of contributions and can formulate just how this narrative will go.
I want it to be shaped by the people whose stories I will be telling.
I know I can do a good job. I already have somewhat of an idea just based on emails and comments and Tweets that I have gotten over the past day. I just hope that everyone will trust me. I can’t really explain it other than that. Like I said yesterday and I guess I am going to have to make a page up top with the info (please give me until after the test on Thursday), but the email if you want to holler at me is JayandColleen@gmail.com. On that note, back to work.
P.S. I said this on Twitter, but I think my all time favorite sentence out of my textbook this semester is, “Law & ethics are not necessarily synonymous.” Please let me have to answer a short answer question asking me about law and ethics…
