So, 3,000 or so words into today’s massive writing blitzkrieg, i finally realized why my senior project was a bad, bad, bad idea. I thought it would be amusing to tell you why, since i know that two of my project advisors read my website.
Hi Al and Ron. Boy did i fuck myself over good.
There are four elements to my approach to almost any communications project, which i will list here in order of preference and marked by the piece of punctuation that they current evoke.
Of course, i had the witless naivete to choose a project that stacks those preferences in almost exact reverse order, and now i am paying for it. Oh, how i am paying for it. I just spent two hours joyfully clacking away at bevy of documents only to realize that i had skipped directly to writing. This has been the story of the entire process – get stuck on planning, revert to writing. Because, shocker, i like the writing the best.
Stupid miserable me. My only consolation is that i chose a good cause to do this slave labor over, as it would have never been done otherwise. Still, there is part of me weeping and wishing I was unleashing some masterful, personal, novel-length essay. Or doing Aim’s project. Or some other thing that shouldn’t require footnotes of any kind.
Five more weeks to go.
