So, I’m finally getting around to blogging after only posted twice so far. I’m supposed to post at least once a week. So, in conclusion, I’m doing really great. My inability to do weekly tasks is probably why my A1C is always so high–I can’t be bothered to remember to do things. This is why I have a million reminders on my phone and still fail to do them. This is also probably why I’m working on my research proposal at this moment. And by “working on my research proposal” I mean procrastinating by writing this blog post.
I know if I had finished it earlier, then I would have more time to think about it. However, my fear of things I do not know how to accomplish took over. So here I am. What I find so fascinating about this exercise is how so completely confused I was about writing a research proposal. It sounds so simple doesn’t it? Just explain your idea, why you want to do it, and how you are going to do it. But starting to write it, I realized I had no clue how to actually research my problem. It would make so much sense to interview people and see what their home life was like and how well they’ve done since then. I want to know how the wage gap effects lives, and I want to know how these single parent homes effect the lives of their children. However, I would need multiple years and loads of grants to be able to accomplish this. I do not have years, I have weeks. And I’m pretty sure no one wants to give me loads of grants right now. Maybe next year.
I’ve finally run out of dumb rambling things I want to share, so I guess it’s time to actually finish this work.
