What’s up? :-)

So, I am exploring funding options and working on the research proposal. I intend to do this research, because it is important and it fits into my criminal justice and deaf culture framework.

I still have to deal with people who, not intentionally stupid or mean, say things like “Oh, I am sorry. I didn’t know he’s deaf” “C a n h e r e a d l i p s” which cracks me up because they are talking to me, a hearing person, but talking very slowly. I’m like “Dude, I can hear you, just talk!”

It feels strange to be an unaffiliated researcher, by that I mean not academically affiliated, but the learning never stops. And yeah, I am being cagey about the whole research project because I want to get it approved by an IRB somewhere, either where I am going to classes or a school I was once affiliated with. Once I do get IRB, I will be more forthcoming.

So, why did I post? Just to let y’all know what I am up to and to let you know that having a Ph.D. doesn’t have to mean that you must be an academic, it means that you must want to continue learning.
