Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

I just finished my first Open University essay of the new term, this one in ED209: Child Development. A week and a half before it's due in and everything. I'm such an over-achiever. In case you're interested - I know I'm not - it's a case study into "Irish expectations for mastery of developmental tasks in children." I added that "Irish" bit myself because really it's a load of nonsense, and the two freaks participants I used totally threw all the results so nothing made any kind of concludable sense, and I'm hoping that by making it a cultural issue I can confuse whoever marks it into giving me a decent grade.

The important thing to note here, of course, is that the damn thing is finished, and now I can go back to the other course, Exploring The Brain, which I'm currently two chapters behind on and understanding NOTHING about. Although I now suddenly know again what a neuron is. But THAT'S ALL. I'm sensing I've bitten off way more than I can chew, and may still choke to death on this one. Ho hum.
