Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 34 (Season 2): Victory approaches!

Another short entry for you, today, my friends, but a good one: I was waiting for a while for a response from my profs, but my advisor just got back to me! He said what I had sounded good, so I should send it over. I’m gonna go over my draft quickly and make sure […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 33 (Season 2): Progress and Frustration

Well, as the day counts down to the last of my extension, I’ve got good news and bad news. First the good: I’m almost done with the changes I’ve made. The bad, though…well, as you’ve probably gathered, I made some pretty significant changes to organization, and while I think my work is looking much better, […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 32 (Season 2): Thank God for extensions!

Still busy but some good news: I asked my profs and they said I could have a little extension, so the new date is Feb. 3. I needed it..for reasons I’ll get into next week, for now, I’m mad busy! Back to the grind…

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 31 (Season 2): Grinding My Gears

Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh. Still haven’t finished up chapter 1. Partially, this is motivation: It’s gotten so much warmer that I’ve been spending more time outside eating and enjoying myself. But partially it’s because the act of reorganizing the chapter seems to be like a “one step forward, two steps back” sort of […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 30 (Season 2): Still stalled

Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh. Still haven’t finished up chapter 1. Partially, this is motivation: It’s gotten so much warmer that I’ve been spending more time outside eating and enjoying myself. But partially it’s because the act of reorganizing the chapter seems to be like a “one step forward, two steps back” sort of […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 29 (Season 2): Pedal to the metal

Can’t say much this week, my friends, I am *very* busy. Haven’t been doing much but thinking about my dissertation…my prof got back to me and said he recommended subheadings for every chapter, so I’ve been thinking about how to do those. I think my brainstorming may be paying off…I should be finished with Chapter […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 28 (Season 2): Editor’s block?

First, I’ll cut right to the chase and tell y’all what you’ve been waiting for: How did my holidays go?   Honestly, not much happened. My friend Starseeker got me the new Age of Empires expansion on Steam, but that was pretty much it. My mom went on a trip, so she just left me […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 27 (Season 2): Tougher than I’d thought :(

Urrgh! Once again, my friends, I haven’t made as much progress this week as I’d hoped. I’ve gotten started on the next chapter, but for a couple of days I was busy helping my mom pack and get ready for a trip. I’d wanted to really get into gear on Wednesday, but when I took […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 26 (Season 2): Plodding Onwards

Urrgh…Not much to say this week, my friends. A lot of things held me up. Some were foolish–I got into an argument with someone on Reddit about classical theism which took a lot of time–while others were more unlucky, like a lot of snow making traffic worse and making it harder to get to the […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 25 (Season 2): Laying the Groundwork

A reasonably productive week, my friends–and I had a good deal of fun, too! Here, as usual, is the lowdown: WATCHAN: Jojo ep. 36: I’m still not sure how Killer Queen’s power works, but holy crap, this episode was AWESOME! First they played the OP backwards, to reference how the antagonist can turn back time, […]
