pity party

ugh. i need to grow up or snap out of it or something. i am so full of self-loathing today.

i want to own a toy store. i should not be a sociologist. what do i do?

update: jeremy had given me a present this morning and he just took it back because i am not studying right now. i don't think this is fair. don't child-rearing books frown on negative reinforcement?

update 2: jeremy gave me back the present on the condition that jon helps me make a schedule to study for my prelim. jon, this may be a lot of work for you, what with all of the whining that i will probably do. sorry. but, hey, the present i got is awesome. devil-headed toothpicks.

chiraag, um, who are you?

It looks as though this chiraag person is a trader in some fantasy blog "market". It seems to me that the "value" of his/her blog increases when other blogs/sites link to it. This post may just be an automated 'bot or something like it. Feel free to disregard it unless you hear something more definite.

BlogShares was written in early 2003 by Seyed Razavi in his free time. The overall objective of BlogShares is the exploration of an emerging social network while providing an addictive and fun environment for bloggers to join and help add to the worth of the social network. Another one of the purposes of this site was to prove the Power Law theory. Part of this theory is based on the fact that 20% of the population holds 80% of the wealth. This can also be attributed to weblogs, 20% of the blogs contain 80% of all incoming links. BlogShares hits a home run with this theory.

It is unclear to me why you do not choose to work in a toy store if the desire is so strong. You would not even have to drop out of graduate school to satisfy that longing.

hey em,
happy late birthday. email me about chicago please please. if you weren't going to be a sociologist you would no longer be part of a cohort. would you open your toystore in madison or open it across the street from toyjoy and put her out of business? no, i can't see you being that cut throat, well, maybe a little. i can only imagine how thick the rules in your employee handbook would be.
