One of the main reasons that I hardly ever get to post anything on the website that bears my name is related to the fact that I'm working on my PhD right now. I know you're thinking "How can someone that writes so much STUPID shit be getting a PhD?", but just think back to when you were in college. You know those people that made your life a living hell and thought they were 10 times smarter than they really are? Those people had PhDs, and they are who I spend all of my fucking time with.
One of the main components of a PhD program is taking lots and lots of hours of coursework in research design and statistics (at least if you're doing your PhD in some scientific field, as I am). When I started taking statistics courses, I considered seeking professional help, because I actually sort of....enjoyed it. As I delve deeper and deeper into my coursework, I am beginning to identify with the main character (Max, for everyone besides Lord Bling) in Darren Aronofsky's movie Pi. Mainly, I just wanted to take my 14 volt electrical drill and put a hole in my head to relieve the pain that comes along with spending all my time thinking about variances and covariances.
Fortunately, the end of the semester is near. Soon, I will be back to blasting people's faces off on Xbox live and pretending I don't know anything about matrix algebra, which won't be difficult, because I barely understand it. Until then, I bid you a fond farewell, and that I will be a much happier man when I post next.
