Day 154

In addition to my coursework, I am currently helping my advisor with one of her current research projects. I'm being compensated to transcribe interviews, and it's really good experience for me as a novice researcher. I have the help of Otter, which is an awesome, free app for transcribing audio. There are premium features, but I have done well so far with the free version. The software is imperfect at times, but it's certainly a time saver compared to manually transcribing every word. Plus, there's the occasional misinterpretation that makes me laugh.

This evening, I've been transcribing an interview with a student who aspires to attend veterinary school, and whenever she says "vet school," Otter transcribes "bed school." I'm tired, so bed school sounds pretty awesome to me right about now. If Higher Education Administration doesn't work out for me, I would love to have a tenure-track position in bed school. My expertise would be in naps. Naps on the couch, naps when the sun is shining, naps on planes, naps after working out...I would be great at that job.

But for now, I have to stay focused on making Plan A work.

Something that made today great: Practice 5K at Girls on the Run practice!
