Hey, guys, I could use a little help here.  ^_^

I’m in the middle of a doctoral program at the moment (because one doctorate just isn’t enough anymore, don’t you know?  ^_^).  I’m pursuing an educational doctorate with an eye towards teaching at a university.  Anyway, I’m currently taking a class on statistics, and as part of that class, my cohort and I are conducting a brief survey.  This information will not be published, nor will it be used for any purpose outside of class.  Also, if you choose to participate, you will remain completely anonymous through the entire process.

The end date for this survey is Monday, July 11, 2016, and it would be a great help to me if you would consider participating.

Here is the link to the survey, if you’re interested: https://hofstra.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_8qsroGreJjMEFBX

Thank you so much!


‘Tis the season to send holiday cards!


This was a lot of fun when we did it last year, so I thought I’d do it again.  ^_^  If anyone else wants to jump on the bandwagon, feel free.  ^_^

If you’re a mutual (or we interact on tumblr and I know who you are ^_^) and would like a holiday/seasonal card, send me an
ask or a convo with your name and address and I’ll send you a card.  Don’t forget to let me
know if there is a particular holiday you celebrate, otherwise I’m going
to go with a generic “season’s greetings” card.

Have at!  ^_^

…obviously Chanukah is over already, so I apologize for missing that one, but general disclaimer that I never get things mailed on time anyway?  ^_^  Oops?
