Academic Urges

Since arriving from Taiwan, I've had an inexplicable urge to do research for my dissertation. The night my plane touched Manila, I got home and spent 3 hours on jstor reading relevant academic journals. I've also been digging up old newsweeks for articles on east asian political economy (To no avial. Everything written in the last 5 months is about Obama).

If only these urges came at the right time of the year and not during Summer.
You know, when they actually count for something.

*A special hello to our loyal reader, Ms. Janna Pablo! I love you:D

you look adorable! I like that the skirt is khaki and outdoorsy but then you added the tough gladiator flats, it's the perfect contrast.
It might not be the perfect timing for reading but it is acquired knowledge nonetheless..;)
