This was an assignment for one of my graduate classes this semester. We got to practice ethnographic coding and analysis on any source we chose. Naturally, being the fangirl that I am, I picked Science Fiction movies.

(I broke up some of the block text so it's in a slightly different format than how I turned it in)

“For the Greater Good”: Themes of Life and Death in Science Fiction


“They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people... better.” --Captain Malcolm Reynolds, Serenity.

“You cannot play God then wash your hands of the things that you've created.” --Commander William Adama, Battlestar Galactica.

Happy New Year everyone!

Even-numbered years tend to be awesome ones for me and so this time, I have made a New Year resolution for the first time in ... I can't even remember.

GRAD SCHOOL.

Aiming for Fall '13 at UC Davis in Archaeology, emphasis in historical especially Gold Rush era California. It's my favorite :D

My second choice is Sacramento State, just in case, I hope it doesn't come to that because I really love Davis :D

So, my to-do list is quite scary:

- Three letters of recommendation (two lined up so far but I have not asked yet)
- A writing sample (not sure if I can use one from my current project since it has two names on it)
-Graduate Record Examination scores (DAMN YOU GRE I think this will be the most difficult part)
- Statements of purpose and research interests (oh man I don't even know where to begin)
- Curriculum vita (easiest part aside from the following...)
- Academic transcripts

Deadline for all these is January 15 (except for the transcripts which are December 15)

ONE YEAR TO PREPARE... and I know it is going to fly by.

Not actually too worried about writing a thesis since winning Nano, so yay!

I wish I could go back to college?
