Engendered... lol

So, I absolutely have not blogged in a long time. Right now, I'm still at my RuffleJob, but I'm off the clock. I get off at 4:30 on Mondays, but I don't have to be at KSW until 6:15. Which means I leave here at 5:45. I've got about 1 hour to kill right now. I'll probably leave at 5:30. Either way, I'm basically blogging because I'm procrastinating from working on my thesis. I guess I'll work on it tonight.

My thesis is on how one's pre-college educational environment effects the attitudes toward traditional gender roles that one develops. Pretty exciting. I accidentally used the word engendered when writing about my topic the other day. I wasn't sure if it was a pun. I had to ask the boyfriend. I'm not very good at these things.

Anyway, my biggest issue is finding an appropriate measurement of one's attitude toward traditional gender roles. I'd like to stop by the school and do an inter-library loan on a couple books, but the man who works the library at night is incompetent. I have a violent reaction towards incompetence.

I may end up coming up with my own study. I've found various studies which I think would work, but some must be administered by a licensed psychologist, or simply someone with a grad degree. I am neither.

We're working on it. (Finding a survey, not becoming a licensed psychologist.)
