Yoda the cat!

Yoda is quite the cat.  She never sits still and is always jumping around the apartment.  Sometimes I find her hanging out by the fluorescent lighting in the ceiling.  Yoda is one cute and curious cat!

Abstract painting

Here are some details of an abstract painting produced for my Taiwan Art History PhD course. The objective of the course was to produce two paintings based on the style of a famous Taiwanese artist. Earlier in the semester I produced a painting based on the work of artist Tsai Jui-Chen. This painting is of my own design and I find abstract art to be highly satisfying to engage with.

The Five Elements to a Research Paper or Article

  1. Your content, research, or study
  2. Linking your content to the appropriate scholarship in your field
  3. Demonstrating new insight and knowledge of the scholarship within your field
  4. The structure and organization of your article including appropriate methodology
  5. The overall written quality of your article

As I am in the process of competing a research article it has come to my attention there are five key elements, phases, or hoops to jump through. While there are many other rudiments that could be added to this list the five points are key areas I struggle with. Although, this list is numeric all five elements are extremely important and are stressed equally. At the time of this writing I have finished 1, 4, and 5; but are in the process of completing 2 and 3. Let’s hope I am able to produce the appropriate product within 24 hours….

Something about this made me laugh….

It’s the cheapest man in Britain. He uses tea bags three times and duck tapes his shoes. After reading this article I can understand why his girlfriend does not live with him and think he may suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder. Nonetheless, I will probably download and watch this program on the cheapest people in Britain.  I am curious about the woman who wears men’s underwear to save a buck.
