Classes have resumed and PSY290 – Research Methods looks intense.

Considering these classes are accelerated, I’m a little nervous about timeframes. I also have no idea what topic I’ll do my paper on yet. Since this is ultimately a psychology class, the quote above seemed apropos. After all, facts and empirical tests (reality) should disabuse us of unwarranted beliefs.

I may be silent here, or “cheating” and relying on more quotes courtesy of The Economist for the next seven weeks or so…
