We started the final third section of my class on research approaches tonight, qualitative. I’ve always been drawn to quantitative research because I’m comfortable in math-related things, but I’m starting to wonder if my topic is better-suited to something qualitative. It’s certainly a writing style I think I’m good at, the thick descriptions and literary verisimilitude goals.
I still just need to sit down and figure out the actual path and see how far out of whack I am on the path to the PhD. R’s starting to contemplate earning one, and I’d like to get past mine before he jumps in too thoroughly, lest we drive each other mad. Squirrel Brain has a lot of thinking to do.
