Christmas is a coming and the Landies getting phat.

I have not blogged in an inordinately long time so it seems and a lot has changed since I last appeared here.

Whatever I am on course academically, and for the moment financially stable, so my gamble paid off in the short term.

Not everything is going smoothly though, for although I am probably well ahead of the game in terms of the majority of my post grad peers, what I lack is their gullibility, in that I have not been enamoured by a series of courses in research I was supposed to take. I have inevitably fallen foul of NT professors who do not expect the aspie inquisition.

I have had to withdraw from these taught courses for this year, perhaps permanently who knows.

I have realised that I am not best situated in the School of Education, and that my research is to a large degree a lot more psychologically oriented, and a hell of a lot more rigorous in my intentions than what passes for research amongst the jaded cognoscenti resting on their peer published laurels.

(but I would say that)

I intend to go about this in a somewhat new and innovative way in that I shall shortly be creating a new blog somewhere and a new list to allow the participants in my research some say in it.

But for now, Christmas is coming up, and I am hoping that two things will happen, that the weather will be good on Christmas day and my ever perilous landie won't let me down, because inevitably one of these years I will return with no pictures worth posting.

But for now, (no-one ever said we were not repetitive) I shall leave you with a link to my latest exploits on youtube incase you have not seen this so far.

Raising stimming to an art form. NAS the musical (well not quite)
