I just went to my first meeting for this program that sets up PCC students with summer research internships at PSU, and it looks like there's a possibility that I might actually be able to do an internship this summer, but that's not as exciting as the fact that this whole program is streamlined (way more than I realized) into PSU's science department, and I can now earn credits for going to free science lectures, and when I transfer to PSU I will basically be plonked right into an NIH-sponsored program there. So now I am taking some different classes next term from what I had originally intended, and also I have much more direction and access to way more resources than I had imagined I would in my first year. There is a whole support system of instructors and mentors and coordinators and classes to get me where I need to be with the highest immersion rate possible. If all goes as planned this means that I will do my internship next summer and start PSU next fall.

SQUEEEEEEEEE

Basically I am totally thrilled to death right now.

Thanks, NIH!

AWESOME news, Nigel, congrats!

Thank you!

The other part of what this does that I didn't mention is that it is directly oriented at networking and community-building... basically, I am gaining access to social resources and a research community that I wasn't expecting to have access to for at least another year and a half. Best of all, this program is a brand-new baby one, and already two of last year's alumni have been offered regular research jobs, one at PSU, one at OHSU.

YAY NIGEL!

If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

I got a housemate last night. The empty room is no longer empty, for the next couple of weeks, because my friends are breaking up and the girl one needed a place to stay. I has a bit of a sad, because I really like these friends and am bummed that they couldn't make it work out.

I have to break up with a guy.

I have a feeling this is going to suck and involve crying.

Well, bring a hanky along for him, then.

He's going to have to bring his own damn hanky.

I really really want to break up with him via text but that would be really rude. I should probably take him out for a beer and try to break it to him easy.

Make sure you have an escape route. I know I hate it when they try to latch on and sob on my shoulder, demanding to know whhyyyyy?!!?! Maybe one of your friends will drive the get-away car.

For sure!

My plan is to do it at a bar and pay cash, so that after I tell him I can bolt. "Sorry, I think you're a great guy but I'm just not feeling it."
