It always amazes me how soon into the semester I have to start thinking about the end. It’s final project/paper proposal time, which means I’m trying to narrow down the following subjects into paper-sized topics: 20th century German history, the 2012 doomsday prediction and health care.

I’m still very much enjoying my classes (for the most part). I’m finding Political Philosophy difficult, if only because of the readings – they’re just SO dry and hard to get through! The class itself is fascinating however, apparently underneath all the difficult to read run-on sentences, Hobbes and Locke are actually saying some interesting stuff. My Professor does a really great job of helping us to understand what exactly is going on in their treatises on government.

After working both days last weekend (and it was my birthday! 🙁 I had fun anyway though) I have this weekend off, and I’m heading to Boston to visit some friends at “the other H school” as President Raab likes to say.

Time to catch my bus! (I love that the Fung Wah is $15 no matter how late you book your tickets).

PS – There’s some interesting developments going on with education policy right now, which is making my research for Professor Viteritti even more relevant. Read more here: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/23/education/23educ.html?_r=1&ref=education
