Option 1 after you get your master's in political science is you can go on for a PhD in political science. Option 2 is you can get a job. (Scroll to the bottom for helpful links--social scientists with methods training have opportunities in non-profits, NGOs, IOs, government agencies, research institutions, and more.) Recently I selected option 2. I start my new job on October 28! Because I did not foresee this happening, and because hunting for non-academic jobs is very much not a discussion topic within academia in my experience, I'm writing about it here. I hope to save someone else some of the anguish I experienced, and also I hope to help someone else find their perfect job. Timeline of my experience: Dec 2009: ...
Recall I said yes to riding the mountain bike race with Maia last week, with no small amount of hesitation (I had known about it for 2 months). Eh, what could it hurt. I headed down to Breckenridge on Wednesday for just the night and the morning race, planning to have at best a moderately good time. My companions, aside from Maia, all work at a triathlon shop, Colorado Multisport. But I quit triathlon. So we probably would not get along. Thank god for being wrong. For one thing the race was super fun and challenging. Our race strategy was we flipped a coin and so I rode the first lap which ...
Late on Friday, after a few interjections of "only if you want to" and "don't feel obligated", it occurred to me that perhaps Dan's cousin would prefer that I not pick him up at 5 minutes to 7 the next morning so that we could hike to the first Flatiron. Perhaps he'd prefer to hike alone. Or sleep I guess. Lucky for me, Alex is not only extremely polite, but also has well-internalized Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild... Because it's true, the memorable experiences are the shared ones. As for me, I am still early in my post-triathlon exploration of recreation and activities. Before yesterday I had not yet tromped up the rocks that, on ...
Yesterday I told Maia I'd love to do the race with her so today I rode with Kerrie for some serious preparations, as you can see from our water backpacks.[nggallery id=73]
We used to say that the men's category 3 bike racers got in the worst crashes, because they were good enough to be going pretty fast but not good enough not to run into each other at kind of avoidable times. This was just observational. (And side note we also observed a uniform distribution of bad crashing across all categories of women's races. Perhaps it's got something to do with progesterone levels.) I am calling myself a cat 3 at bouldering now. Good enough to take on fun challenges but not good enough to know how not to get hurt. The other day at The Spot I thought I gave myself an ...
The other day I nearly rationalized a move from the foothills back into central Boulder with "I'd be closer to things." As in, socializing. Restaurants and bars, if you will. (Close to the bars seems a big selling point on craigslist.) Also technically I would be closer to school. My 4 month sublease is nearly up, and signing an actual 1 year lease for the first time in 6 years got me nervous. But returning to town doesn't seem right. I've lived in enough places, enough cities, to feel that it's the natural attractions rather than the man-made ones that make Boulder special. So if you're contemplating a move to the area, or a move out of the central part of ...
