Came up with a handy dandy definition of "participatory action research" today. (I often like to make up handy dandy definitions to remind me of things when I'm trying to memorize them so I can be a big time awesome Dr. PhD who quotes people at will.
Anyway... Often associated with a feminist methodology...
Participatory Action Research: "Why don't you tell me what you want me to tell you about you..."
That's when you know you're too busy and there too many tasks on your multi-tasking calendar because for some reason I wrote the above statement on the side of a letter I was reading... right next to "be sure to include in a short bio."
I remember what that statement was about - I recently found out that I was selected for a Ford Foundation fellowship (YAY! More on that application process coming soon) and I needed to make sure to include that in my bio.
Grad school - heck all of it - heck even life is sort of a constant revision and update of your CV. The other day someone said to me "you know Deans, they have CVs that are like 50 pages long!" and I thought "why?"
Apparently, it's a thing. My CV is growing. Hence (yes I said hence...) I must add into my bio that I am a Ford Fellow, little old me...
And for some reason I also need to remind myself of something or someone that is lethargic with a history of vomiting.
Who knows what it had to do with (I don't, quite honestly, cause my brain is filled with, well at the moment - orange chicken and the reading I need to finish by tomorrow). But I feel like it could make a really good prompt for a short story...
More to add to my list of things to do...
