Oats and a Little about Me

This morning I woke up and made some lovely, colourful oats. I used 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond breeze, and 1/2 cup of quick oats. I topped them with blackberries, strawberries, and pineapple.

I received a couple of questions in my comments section yesterday/ this morning, and instead of replying in the comments or privately, I thought I would post the answers here in case any one else is wondering the same thing.

Anais asked: Are you doing a masters?

No - I am not doing a masters, yet. I finished my BEd degree in 2004 and became a teacher. I immediately started my BA in Psychology, and finished all the requirements for that in Dec. 08. I discovered at the last minute that I only had 3 classes left and I would have an honours degree in Psych., so I canceled my graduation, and am finishing the last of those 3 classes right now. I will be done my BA Honours this Dec., and then I am going to take a semester off for the first time in 9 years, and just relax and enjoy life. In the fall of 2010 I may do something else with school, but I am not sure yet. I have done 2 masters classes, but I am not in the program. If I do apply and get in, I can use them as credit at that time.

SimplyLife asked: What are you writing your thesis about?

I am doing my honours thesis in the cognitive psychology area. I am looking at whether or not a participants perception can be influenced by the order in which information is presented. More specifically, how the primacy and recency bias influence participants judgment of the mean size of a set of circles. I am keeping this brief, so as not to bore you to death.

I am off to do a workout and them have a light lunch in a couple hours.
Have a great day peeps.

I'm totally lost with all the education, but it sounds very intellectual.
