I'm big on economics, international relations, politics, and I'm a wannabe quant. Right now, I'm working on a quantitative analysis of NATO's mission in Afghanistan. It's almost done, but I'm really getting bogged down.
Having problems with moving from a static to a dynamic model...Oy.
I've got some goals this summer though:
1. Get a whiteboard (a must at this point).
2. Learn Math.
3. Realize I can't "learn math" and settle for understanding lots more than I do right now.
4. Not fail out of college because I'm doing nerdy things like discovering the underlying patterns of human behavior.
5. Not list things about college on a summer to-do list.
But seriously, a side note on patterns: finding what you think might be a pattern that unlocks an aspect of individual (or state) behavior is like sorting chaos to find the face of God. You know a little bit more than everyone else about how the world works.
^^^That was a little dramatic, and for the 2 people who will read this, I apologize.
Finally, my tags for this post will be Summer, Afghanistan, Models, About Me.
