Stating your Research

Research Statements are no joke. So hard. How do you whittle down your interests into one specific thing that is the essence of your interests. What are my interests? That has been the point of the last two weeks here. I’m interested in everything I’m doing right now. I feel as though I have been in a vacuum and someone just let me out and I have entered a world where everything is slightly different with smells and feelings that I remember but it all looks different. I am so grateful of my new back to school lenses.

Lenses are so interesting. Rose colored glasses. I might be most interested in red colored glasses. Getting back on track, the minute you look at something from a different lens it is all different. There are academic lenses, marketing lenses, and research lenses. I knew this before, but somehow my current lens makes everything seem so important and interesting. I’m sure there are more lenses but I think I’ve said lenses enough in this paragraph.

Let’s just take a moment to appreciate Felecia Marshall’s beautiful painting I borrowed here titled “Rose Colored Glasses.” Click here to buy it.

Below you can read my summary of her book for Graduate Seminar. There are so many grad words in there! 😉

The start of graduate school after working in the field is like a time-warp. I’ve fallen through the rabbit hole and here I am 20 years later, right where I started.
