About the changing world all around us

Well its do or die now. Its over midnight so its officially the 21st of May, the day of my final in Research Method and Design. I feel like a total wreck just now, I think I may need a bit of luck on my test. I really have a tough time wrapping my brain around the statistics!

Well it isn’t exactly do or die…on the one side I think the exam form is harder here then it was in the USA (God I sure wish this test was multiple choice -or as my brother says multiple guess, I’d probably get an A!!) Here most of the tests are written essay form. Howeer I get more than one shot at it, if I do fail I can take it again after the summer…however I don’t really expect to fail it. I’m not expecting an A but I think I have got it down well enough to pass, and thats the most important part. At the Masters level lets face it, I am not competing to get into much else so as long as I get a passing grade and can move on to actually doing research then everything is fine and dandy!!!

Don’t be afraid that I don’t know what I am doing and am going to do reasearch…number one I won’t do it alone, number two I can use my books!!!, and number three most of the statistics are done by a computer these days…besides I am probably going to do qualitative, not quantitative reasearch 🙂

Wish me luck, no matter what my vacation starts tomorrow…so in the immortal words of Arnold Swarchenegger….”I’ll be back!!”
