"The paperwork! My God, the paperwork!"

In other news, my father and I are trying to work out an arrangement whereby it wouldn't be necessary to put Alex, Tiffy, and Beauty up for adoption. The jist of those efforts entails searching for friends or friends of friends willing to work as dog- or cat-sitters, and my father searching for another apartment. At the moment, the latter consists in seeing if my great Uncle B.C. happens to be selling-off any of his properties in LaSalle, and whether he would be interested in keeping the property within the family.

Meanwhile, I'm in the midst of another round of grant applications, this time to the SSHRC and FQRSC. I missed the deadline for the OGS applications, unfortunately, due to the fact that I couldn't figure out if I was eligible if I hadn't yet received an offer to study at an Ontario university in 2010. Apparently, I was, but that's a bit of water under the bridge.

PhD applications are also coming-up, but I've yet to put together a complete list of universities which would prove fruitful for studies on Michael Polanyi and Plato. I'll have spent most of an entire year studying Voegelin by the time I've finished my thesis, so I'll likely have gotten that out of my system for a bit. Funnily enough, one of the better Polanyi scholars in North America is my old undergrad prof, Prof. M.W. Poirier of Concordia U. Unfortunately, a PhD in political science from Concordia doesn't carry much gravitas with it...

'Still studying Ancient Greek (I need to memorize the present, past, and future participle declensions in active, middle, and passive voices by Wednesday, as well as the aorist tense), 'still T.Aing (this time on Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, and the New Testament), and still trying to exercise regularly.

Somehow, I seem to be fitting it all in... Can you imagine that I wanted to pick-up Latin while doing all this?
