University Thoughts

Medieval Church Paper

Sometimes I find myself reading thirteenth century papal bulls at three in the morning. And to be perfectly honest, I’m okay with this. Maybe I’m just suffering from exhaustion, or maybe I’m just enjoying this brief respite from working on my thesis to write an additional twenty page paper. I don’t know, but I’m somehow enjoying this. By the way, it’s called Parens scientiarum and it was written by Pope Gregory IX to settle a dispute at the still young University of Paris. I’m writing my paper on the interplay between the papacy and the founding of universities, and this is one of my primary sources. Pretty neat!

In other news, I should be getting the contact information of everyone else in my PhD cohort soon. I’m really exciting to meet these people that I will be learning with for the next 5 or so years of my life.

I’ll probably go to bed soon and finish my rough draft of this paper some time tomorrow. It’s definitely going to be rough, especially since Chicago Style is not my citation of choice (APA all the way!). Also, I’m planning on switching gears to a blog about my experiences in Alaska, so maybe that is something to look forward to - you know - the musings of a clinical psychology PhD student who just moved to Alaska. It could be interesting. It could be an adventure.

I’m moving to Alaska next year to study Clinical-Community Psychology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks! Woot Woot!

This could really just be referring to the story of me and my grad school interview in Alaska.

Apparently I haven’t mentioned it yet, BUT I GOT AN INTERVIEW FOR GRAD SCHOOL AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALASKA ANCHORAGE! Needless to say, I’m extremely excited. Since the Iditarod is the same week as my interview in March, I thought I would share a little bit of Alaska humor. Enjoy!

I didn’t get into the University of Kansas, but I still have plenty of grad schools to hear back from. Waiting is the hard part. At least I know I’ll be spending spring break in beautiful West Virginia!

It’s currently -4 in Hamilton New York. Watched Jimmy Neutron tonight with some friends in my house - love that movie! I have class tomorrow and I didn’t do the reading and I don’t feel like going to bed, but I know I should wake up early to skim it - it’s for my medieval church class. So I’m leaving you tonight with a hint of a smile because it is my acceptance of the reality that I officially have senioritis. Let the games begin.

SPSS Adventures

Good news: I found significance in my data set today!! Yay!!

Bad news: It’s the exact opposite of my hypothesis…

Interesting news: So people felt more loving and sympathetic and kind but did not give away more resources in the dictator game. Human Beings are weird. Also might have caught an order effect that could account for some things.

More data processing tomorrow, methinks!
