Flash Mob @ Ohio State

The new “flash mob” trend is pretty awesome.  I really like the organized yet spontaneous nature of flash mobs.  While they confuse people, they seem to genuinely make people happy.

Earlier this week, The Ohio State University had a flash mob in their new student center.  It included the mascot and the university’s President.  How awesome!  Now DU is trying to organize something like this, perhaps for May Days.  Interested?  Let me know and I’ll put you in touch with the right people.


Undergraduate Degree Requirements Met

I have turned in my thesis.  My advisor gave me an A.  Once the grade is recorded and International Studies and the Honors Program note it I will have completed my undergraduate degree requirements!  Since it is virtually out of my hands at this point, I feel comfortable saying “I’m done!”

I will not get my Bachelor’s degree until next June because of the Dual Degree program I am in towards my MBA, but that’s okay.  I have completed the work.

Soon I am off to advising for my MBA classes this fall…

My Undergraduate Thesis

I am finally done!  I have completed my undergraduate thesis!  Since March 2009 I have been learning research methods, developing a topic, researching, reading, writing, refining, editing, changing, thesising, etc.  After countless hours of work (and at least as many thinking about/complaining about the work I needed to do), I am done.  64 pages / 18,357 words later I am happy with my work.

Topic: The Rising Influence of Segmented and Fractionalized Communities in Israel

Thesis Completed for:

Advisor: Jonathan Adelman, Professor of International Studies

Update: May 3, 2010: I’ve turned in my thesis and my Advisor has given me an A.

Information Technology Strategy Class – Survey

So, I am working with a group on a project for my Information Technology Strategy Class on ink! Coffee.  If you have the urge, please take 30 seconds to fill out this survey.  Even if you have never heard of ink! Coffee, that is okay.  The more the better.  Thanks for your help!

Quote #2

It was one of those March April days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:  when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”

– Charles Dickens

I like the weather.  I am happy that it is finally getting warmer.  Unfortunately, my life outside of class and work involves the indoors – thesis, group meetings, homework, etc.
