Well, I am truly sorry I haven't posted lateley. This dissertation thing can be really depressing. There have been huge chunks of time where I haven't wanted to even look at it, let alone write about my experiences with it.
Luckily, I went on vacation for 2 weeks. Spent a week in Mexico and a few days in Colorado. This has helped clear my mind, but also makes for me not wanting to do it.
My dissertation went to my committe finally on the 16th of April. I just finished updating the "recommended" changes and will send off shortly. I am way behind and most likely will not start data collection in June.
