Let's Hear it for the Hippies!
I am in the middle of a Masters Program in English Education. ENGLISH Education. Fairly subject specific. Think literature, research, writing, methodology, etc. This semester one of my classes is Research Methods in English Education.
Rest assured that I am absolutely tickled with the thought of this class. Giddy with anticipation, actually. Even better, one of our semester long assignments is to observe the moon and keep a moon journal. Seriously. I wish I was kidding. We have been given explicit instructions to NOT look things up online about the moon. We are just to observe and then discuss with our group each week. I'm not positive, but I fear that at some point this assignment will involve singing and group hugs.
Pretty sure my moon journal is going to look a lot like this.
Monday- Clouds, no moon visible
Tuesday- Raining, no moon visible but I am soaking wet.
Wednesday- More rain, no moon visible and I now have a runny nose.
Thursday- I may have pneumonia and went to bed at approx 7pm. Doctors note to follow.
Friday- I have decided that the moon is much like God. I know that it is there, I don't need to see it. Therefore, I oppose this assignment for religious purposes.
These hippies won't get the best of me....I've got a plan, and by my calculations....it's fool proof.
