it's gonna be a full weekend. thursday night i'm (hopefully) seeing R, from Spain fame, while she's here on birthright. friday i'm supposed to meet up with S and (different) R who i haven't seen in about 2 years, and saturday i'm heading off with T to East Jerusalem to visit PASSIA and do some research there. we're meeting the director of the joint Dr. Mahdi Abdul Hadi. Hopefully I should be able to get some good stuff for the thesis. If anything it'll be interesting to speak with Dr. Hadi. Luckily we won't have to wander around East Jerusalem looking for the place as the Advisor is buddies with Hadi and they'll be sending a car to pick us up from the American Coloney in Jerusalem and taking us to PASSIA. The Advisor is also going to email Adnan Abu Odeh and two journalists in Jordan to see if they'll speak to me. I'd like to get over there with D in April during Passover break. Not looking forward to telling the parents about the trip as they're very much against me going back to Jordan. I can understand why, but to be fair, the last time i went there a bomb went off in tel aviv. um, so there. Anyway, i wouldn't be going alone (which i think is what worries them more, because i had mentioned something about going there after London to do research). D also wants to try and get into the Jordanian National Archives. I need to talk to the Advisor about that and see what he says. I'm not sure they'll let us in, and if they do, i'm not sure i'll be able to get what i need. still, it's all in good fun. speaking of arabic, i'd better get some sleep so i can get up early and do my homework.
