I have just noticed some serious errors in my gallery page. Thus, that part of the site might be down for awhile as I figure it out. Sorry to disappoint as I know that that particular page is one of the most popular hits on internet and you are just dying to get back in there to see what is new :-p
My report/thesis proposal continues at a snails pace, as does my “3rd term requirement project”. For lack of a better term, I am completely finished with school. I really don’t want to go back for another year of abstraction, theory and useless papers. I want to work more than anything. I am seriously the worst grad student – I don’t like research and I definetly don’t like writing papers, and have coldly realized (maybe I’ve know this for awhile) that I don’t belong in the academic world at all.
Oddly enough, I love urban planning, reading about it and I can’t wait to start to practice it.
So how am I solving this? The only way I know how. Run off to the Indian Himalayas…and totally forget about it. To use a cliche…there is so much more out there than school and I have never before felt like I’m missing out on the world like I do now.
I’m relegated myself to the fact that I probably wont’ graduate for another 3 years anyways. Master’s smasters….
This weekend I made a trip down to Decathalon (a very, very good French outdoor company) and outfitted myself with all the necessities that augment my additional gear for a month in the Kashmir.
I should open my own trekking company.
*the gallery is now working, with photos from Sarajevo and Mostar (Bosnia) added. Images from Belgrade and Kotor are still not functioning for some reason.
