How do YOU feel about the Neo-Vygotskian Approach?

Um, Yeah. This is what the bed of a PhD student looks like as she is writing a proposal due on Wednesday...that she really hasn't started writing yet, cause she is still mapping out the literature review in her mind.

Thought I would share my little slice of hell.

Holy shit! Do two ADULTS sleep in that bed? I mean, books, papers, other scholarly crap - yeah, but that thing wouldn't even fit ONE of the adults in our household. I got way too much budonkadonk for that toddler bed.

(Good luck with the proposal - I like the initial "gathering of worthwhile-looking data" period prior to the actual writing. It's like a first date, before you realize your boyfriend is addicted to Halo.)

Noticed a few interesting books there. LOL

Definitely looks like a PhD student at work!

DUDE. I have nightmares about being back in school.

I do rather like Piaget, though!

Stay sane, or, if not, just laugh manically. Maybe cry at the same time too. It's quite cathartic.

I'm with Mignon-you and Terrance must REALLY like to snuggle while you sleep!

As for your post title question-would you like to tell me how I should feel about it? Because I have NO IDEA!!

This is EXACTLY how I used to write papers in grad school. Papers, books, notes, all strewn about the bed in a seemingly haphazard pile.

Worked for me.

I thought of going back to school for a Ph.D. Gosh, I'm glad I didn't.

Do you know, there was this one semester when I was in school-- and I was an undergrad, mind you-- when I had at least one 8-10 page literary analysis paper due every single week?

And not all of them were in English, either.

Okay, I'm done now.

By the by, that Private Speech book looks really interesting. Is it good?
