I have not even thought about blogging for quite a while now, but I’m considering starting up again once I go back to school. I don’t really want to write about my current research project, so I’ll wait for classes & classmates to inspire some different ideas in me.
Speaking of school, I don’t think I’ve formally announced on my blog: I will be attending North Carolina State University starting in August for my Master’s in Sociolinguistics! I’m really looking forward to this opportunity to work with & learn from the best for two years. I had the chance to visit last March & I know it’s going to be a great experience.
This summer I have been working with my collaborator on preparing a manuscript (two actually) for publication. If you remember the survey I posted several months ago, we’re working on getting our results out! My collaborator will be going to the Sociolinguistics Symposium in Germany at the end of August to report some of our findings. Unfortunately (not really), I’ll be starting classes, so I won’t be tagging along.
I’m also getting ahead of myself by putting together a research proposal for a potential thesis project!
Anyway, that’s all I had to say.
