Kelley School: Making A Difference




Don't let them promote you. Don't let them transfer you. Don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship. Because as long as you're there, you can make a difference.
    - James T. Kirk to Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: Generations


Meaning: In academia, the "bridge of that ship" includes teaching, research, and - perhaps most of all - advising. Promotion entails moving out of research into purely administrative positions, and transfers are analogous to changing jobs and careers, including moving into industry. My destiny, I truly believe, is to stay in research and advising to make that difference.

This is part of the David E. Kelley School of Advising series.

You're It: The LiveJournal Tag System

How do you use the LJ tag system? I've been just tagging willy-nilly and adding as many keywords as I think I will need to search on later.

ETA, 09:45 CST Wed 19 Nov 2008 - You can see where this has led. I'm now at 1258 tags, 58 over a post hoc limit of 1200 imposed by the powers that be. A bit arbitary, if you ask me!

Shark Bait Chillin': Misheard Song Lyrics

I've got shark bait chillin' in the Frigidaire, a million ways of showin' you how I care.
                -Trisha Yearwood, "If I Ain't Got You", The Song Remembers When (misheard by banazir)

What are your favorite misheard lyrics? Please name the song title and artist if you know them.

(The above phrase was supposed to be "I've got Chardonnay chillin' in the Frigidaire".)
