5 things

I thought a lot about this past week.

1) Being amazed that my rookie semester of teaching is almost over
2) What it means for third-generation Korean Americans to see their grandparents as Korean, but not their parents or themselves (from an encounter with my favorite 5 year old in LA last week)
3) N.T. Wright’s book Surprised by Hope and how it relates to my research
4) How I can articulate how my research agenda fits together
5) Why I want to start a seminar on college access by talking about childhood (Annette Lareau’s Unequal Childhoods, to be specific). How immigrant parenting can sometimes reflect the best of both worlds–concentrated cultivation and natural growth.
