Due to the complete and utter failure of Educational Plan A, we are not moving to the new and improved Educational Plan B. If you have, any comments or suggestions please feel free to suggest a course of action. The educational division is currently working on an Educational Plan C, which may or may not be available depending on the weather in the lower hemisphere. The following is a list of educational options, concluded by, of course taking the LSAT, which will involve an entirely different set of schools.
- Walden University [Rolling Admission] Ph.D. in Public Policy and
Administration with an focus on e-Government.
Tomorrow is the big day for driving out to Colorado. I will be gone for a while, and then I will return to Kansas City for a couple of weddings. One of the strangest strings of events happened to me today. On my way up to Lawrence, I was listening to Rush Limbaugh who was talking about the University of Kansas and John Kerry
I went to a party last night, one of those house parties, a sort of private party, an intimate gathering if you will. Somebody screamed from across the room,
Well the Hyphen says that one day I will find the perfect graduate school. Perhaps the Hyphen is correct and things will get better. I can tell you this much I picked up my car for the automotive repair specialist, and then the radiator blew up for a second day in a row. Who knew that car repair was such a difficult business?
I have made some decisions about the future of my life. They go something like this I will be taking the LSAT in October. When I was a little kid, all I wanted to do was be a corporate lawyer. To be more specific a contract lawyer, that is the direction that I was headed before my junior year of college. I changed the direction of my life toward public service, and the study of public administration.
Now is the time to go back to the basics to take this chance to do something that I really want to do, before it becomes time to do what has to be done. I do want to be a professor someday. I would like to teach public administration, study the future of technology in government, and spend my entire lifetime learning. That said, I do not really know what I am going to do with the next year.
What I do know is that Hyphen likes California. I might end up going out to Washington, D.C. to work on some software. I might end up going slightly west coast for a Denver Omelet. All I know is that one day it will all make sense, until then that day comes I secretly hope that my car stops exploding.
Some people go an entire lifetime without experiencing a truly defining moment. Today I finally got word from the last PhD school that I sent an application. The word was not good. It appears that I am not an acceptable candidate for graduate school at this time. Today is a new day, a day of hope, a day of promise for the future. Well maybe today is a just a day, but probably it is a day at a crossroads.
Now is the time to make a decision. Where will I be going in life? What should I spend my life doing? How did I go manage to fail at applying to PhD schools? Will I ever figure out what I am supposed to be doing? These are all questions and for the most part, they are the wrong questions
Work has been getting harder and harder over the last couple of days. Sometimes my friends give me trouble about working to hard. Well it is true that I do not have a job. It is also true that sometimes, not having a job is, is the key to starting your own job. I have been working very hard over the last couple of months to put together a new program.
Circa 1998, I wanted to start a company and things went fairly well, but did not turn out the way I wanted. Then around the year 2000, SNRP went fairly well and was within a stones through of being a success. At least that is the way I remember things, I try not to remember being snubbed for venture capital or other various failures.
This time, this year, is going to be different. I am working directly in my own best interest without any real pressure. Sure, I feel the pressure of time and of the future, but sometimes that is just enough motivation to keep things going. That is what I need at this point in my life a giant cup of motivation. Well maybe I will go get a cup of coffee that is the best I can do right now.
Played softball yesterday, it was a very interesting experience; I learned that I really do not have very much coordination. I fell down while I was batting, running to second base, and even sliding into third base. Of course, I did not fall down once while playing first base. Everyday of the last couple of months, I have been getting more and more upset about listening to shallow politics.
Even the rock the vote campaign has become a false prophet spreading a message of hate. I went to Van
Last night was a crazy evening in Lawrence, Kansas. We ended up going to Jack Flannigan
