Plan G

The experiment continues. The human element complicates any experiment, but having to gather my data from human sources and then to also have human help (not me) gathering the data is rather… vexing. Fortunately my experimental design allowed for some flexibility, because I have gone from Plan A to Plan B to Plan C… and I think I’m on something like Plan G now.

I’m not sacrificing quality; it’s still going to be good, but I will be glad when it’s over.

  1. I guess some of my colleagues interviewed you some days ago because of the SpanishPod, right? How was it?

  2. I admire this. I believe that having back up/fall back plans are a sign of optimism and a healthy Positive Mental Attitude (PMA).

    Good for you! I applaud your persistence.
