One moment I think I have everything in the world to say, and the next I believe nothing I would say is worth hearing.
This phenomenon is only exacerbated by the fact that it's time for finals!

Rather than make this yet another entry about how frustrated I am with my seemingly inability to write on command, I'm going to focus on the good things that have happened this semester.

Because there were a couple at least.

I learned how to use my school's library, and it's awesome...in both senses of the word. Seriously, it's been some time since I've gotten lost down a rabbit hole of research, and I'd kind of forgotten how much I enjoyed doing so. 

It's been rewarding getting to practice some healthy scientific skepticism. I wouldn't consider myself a terribly proficient deconstructor of arguments, so getting to flex those muscles has been interesting. Irksome, frustrating at times for certain, but ultimately rewarding. 

Getting to know my classmates has been interesting. I can't say as I know any of them terribly well, especially since I couldn't name any of them if my life depended on it, but overall they seem like a good group of folks. They're appreciative of free cupcakes, and wished me a Happy Birthday on the day, so they can't be all bad.

My instructor is someone whose brain I'd love to pick. Apparently she and her boyfriend/husband went to see a concert of the music from Legend of Zelda. That's all kinds of awesome right there. 

Two Wednesdays left and then...I'm done. 
In that time I have to get my paper proposal done, and make a 15 minute PowerPoint presentation on a portion of the experiment we're proposing. I've already got a screen cap of the 'I like turtles" kid for my first slide. Why? Reasons.

I just have to make with the writing.
