DH - it is over already?

Whew! So ends my first dissertation house. Wow. It's been a long time since I've been able to focus so tightly on getting stuff done. No worries about friends and family calling, figuring out what I'm doing for lunch, coworkers needing something, or mundane things like doing laundry (yes, I did continue to shower and brush my teeth).

I had three goals, and I'm happy to say that I accomplished them all, which it served to solidify my topic and approach for my proposal this semester.

Special thanks to Dr. Carter for her feedback and guidance throughout the weekend. And thanks to everyone in the House! Everytime a little procrastination or itch to goof off crept into my psyche, seeing everyone around me hard at work was just what I need to buckle down and get it done.

Glad to meet and see everyone this weekend, and keep in touch!
