Today is an important one. It marks the start of a new term, the date my rent is paid (ouch) and, most importantly, the date the new Ferrari F1 challenger is launched. Dubbed the F60, this new car isn’t as horrible as I feared it might be, in the wake of a raft of dramatically new regulations for the 2009 season.
Anyway: enough of that. Having only one lecture today, it was a graceful re-entry into the academic year and all of the scheduling nightmares that go with it. So far, at least.
I’m heavily occupied at the moment with my second assignment of the year: Corporate Governance. This first topic is very ‘theory’ based and for a non-economist like myself it can be a little heavy-going at times; I’m not used to seeing formulae in journal articles, even less trying to interpret it.
I’ve been researching this thing for over a week now, though my wandering attention has made progress particularly slow. I started the 'writing process' on Friday and have been struggling ever since to get into any kind of 'flow'. I usually find writing fairly easy but this has been more akin to pulling teeth. The last time I was this unexcited by a topic, I think, was during my coursework for Equity and Trusts as an undergrad. Tough times.
