So. The end of November came and went, and no acceptance for my conference proposal. Oh well. It was a rushed idea, a rushed abstract.

Not sure if I should go to the conference. I mean, yes, I should go, but I'm not sure I have the cash. Even if I get some travel money from the program and worked as a volunteer for the conference (10 hours labor=free registration), I'd still need to pay for lodging in San Francisco. And that can't be cheap. And I've never stayed in a hostel, so.... not so sure, not so sure.

There's the AAMs in May, but by May it's too late to get anything good out of it for my thesis, although ideal to start testing the waters of the job market.

Not to count chickens, but I think I've found someone in the Curriculum and Instruction dept. of the School of Ed. who could be real good for my committee. And she's teching a class this winter that looks really applicable. So I sent off an email to her about enrolling in the class and meeting re: my thesis.

There was this Human Subjects training yesterday.... It made me want to crawl under a rock. Three months! Three months! is the turn around time for me to be allowed to interview museum professionals. This is not good if I have a paper what needs writing by January 31. I won't know about that paper till November 31. Must get ass in gear and send off human subjects paper work as soon as I possibly can.

Oh god. It's just after 9 am. Can I crawl under a rock yet? And wait there till someone gives me an MA? Pretty please?

I feel as if the school year is going to start very soon and that makes me want to hide under a rock.

I am seriously considering enrolling in the course that meets on Saturday.

And also: Identifying graduate faculty for a thesis committee is ha-ard. *whine*

There's one woman who looks perfect, but she's not graduate faculty. I almost want to meet with her first, see if she'll be on my committee and ask her if she knows of anyone else with appropriate interests. One other woman I found has appropriate interests, but is more political. Another one is a man who has the worst website in the world for someone proclaiming to be interested in online social networking. Plus there are photos of him holding fish.

Nason might be appropriate, though I don't know that he has interests in the area of my thesis. Plus I'm scared of him.
