Research "Team"... I'll Take That
The other day I sat in deep thought about how my #teamgradschool experience could be more fulfilling if I weren’t my advisor’s only grad student and instead worked on a research team… Meeting with my advisor once a week is great and all but in the off time I wish I had another student struggling to find answers in the same data set I comb through on the regular now… But...

The Recap of the Fo'
Who? Me… What? Airport Chillin… When? Sunday, August Fifth, Two Thousand and Twelve… Where? PIT Why? I’m just coming from the @R4NSBE #RLC2012 in Youngstown, OH and it was another great experience. My first time going to a conference in the fo’ and going to Youngstown (even though I’m from Ohio). Even though the numbers weren’t strong they worked with what they had and made sure those who...
red light... yellow light... GREEN LIGHT, GO!
Today marks a major step in research for me… I’ve officially received my IRB approval to conduct my study for my research on the undergrads. Now it’s full force ahead in recruiting and attempting to pull off what seems like the impossible for the next 3 weeks… #welcome2charlottesville
MLK Day thoughts...
Today effectively marks the beginning of the semester (for me), and its ironic that it happens to be MLK Day as well. It has me thinking… On any given day, one never knows whose life he/she has impacted, whether for the positive or negative. For example, I wonder if Dr. King thought about how many people he might have touched with his words or even how many he would touch long after his...
The other day I watched the movie Adjustment Bureau, and didn’t really think much about the plot until a convo I had with a professor today made me think what if… This afternoon we had our department holiday social, and my advisor, being the social person he is, introduced me to another professor in the department whom I had never met. This guy only teaches one class to undergrads...
Post Turkey Day Thoughts
Happy belated Thanksgiving and early Merry Christmas to all! I’m attempting to get back on track with blogging as a promise to myself to blog my way through grad school and also now to help me with my research (my private blog). This might be the first blog not directly related to Charlottesville. This Turkey Day break was spent along the east coast in the streets of DC and Philadelphia....
Stowe Boyd: Connected Kids →
smarterplanet: I pulled some data from a presentation from the K5 Learning Blog. Kids today are amazingly connected, but less involved in the physical world: More US kids aged 2-5 can play a computer game than ride a bike. 19% of kids aged 2-5 know how to play a smartphone app; 9% know how to tie their shoelaces. More kids aged 2-5 can open a browser than swim unaided. Kids aged 0-8 spend an...
The 2 Year Assignment...
I apologize, I haven’t blogged in awhile.. a good while… so I will try to pick it back up. So much to say as this has been a busy month of traveling. But first let me back track and introduce to you the reason why I’m here… research. This first step, defining my research problem, I’ve been working all semester to get better at and every time I explain it to someone else, it becomes a little...
